Official Injury Update On Shaw and Fellaini


The international break gave Jose Mourinho a slight headache as he watched defender Luke Shaw stretchered off the pitch in the game against Spain.

He was thought to have suffered a concussion and according to new rules, we will have to sit out the Watford game but an article on the Manchester United website suggests he could play.

It read: “Jose Mourinho could be without Luke Shaw, who sustained a head injury in England’s UEFA Nations League match against Spain at the weekend.

“Some reports suggest the left-back will be obliged to serve a mandatory seven-day concussion period of absence, though this has not been confirmed.

“Shaw has enjoyed a bright start to the season for United, picking up the Goal of the Month and Player of the Month awards for his performances in August, and will be assessed by United’s medical staff before any decisions are taken.

“After the trip to Watford, the Reds’ next fixture is away to Swiss side Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday.”

Marouane Fellaini suffered a setback during Belgium training and he is another important figure who could miss the clash against Watford.

“Marouane Fellaini sustained a minor back problem while training with the Belgium squad and returned to the Aon Training Complex after being ruled out of his side’s matches against Scotland and Iceland,” the report added.

“It is a setback for the towering midfielder who starred in United’s victory against Burnley before the international break.”

Manchester United will hope to snatch a point from a Watford side that has won four in four and in red-hot form.
