Luke Shaw not injured for Man United fixture against West Bromwich Albion – report

by Tanveer Arayan


Luke Shaw was not included in the Manchester United squad for the game against West Bromwich Albion even though he was available for selection.

Reports claim he was not injured, but was merely left our even though the Portuguese boss suffered injuries to Phil Jones and Chris Smalling during their time on international duty with England.

Shaw will be hoping to make his way back into the plans at Old Trafford as Mourinho opted to play Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young as his full-backs, with the Englishman not even among the substitutes.

He started in the side’s 1-1 home draw against Bournemouth at the start of March and was withdrawn just 20 minutes into the game in what was his first Premier League appearance since October.

Although Mourinho claimed there was no chance of Shaw being sold at the end of the season, completely leaving him out of action pushes him one way as he hasn’t been able to pick up any opportunities for a run of games.

He’s started just 27 Premier League games for United over the last three seasons after he endured a double leg break in September 2015 just as he was displaying his best performances in a United shirt.

Shaw is quite clearly very talented and hopes are he’s back in the squad soon as there’s no doubt he can go on to become a top player under Mourinho.
