Shaw frustrated with injury problems

by Richard Laverty

Luke Shaw is frustrated with the injury-hit start he has endured with Manchester United but is ready to come through and get his place in the team back.

Shaw returned to action briefly against Spurs on Sunday after picking up an injury back in November against Arsenal.

It was a huge blow to United as they had been looking more solid in a flat back four and Shaw in particular had been in great form, picking up the man of the match award a week earlier against Crystal Palace.

“There was nothing I could do about the ankle injury,” Shaw told MUTV.

“I’ve had a frustrating start with my career at United through injuries.

“Youngy has been superb. He might not be used to defending but he’s done well.”

Ashley Young has also come in for praise from his own supporters lately thanks to his performances at left wing back which have not just seen him provide a regular attacking threat, but help out the defence when needed too.

He has helped United maintain their nine-game unbeaten run but Shaw says they want to win every game.

“We know we’re unbeaten in nine games. But we’ve drawn twice. To be honest with you we don’t want them draws.”

Shaw could be a contender to start against Stoke City but will surely be given the chance to play 90 minutes against Yeovil if he isn’t ready to do so on Thursday.
