Mourinho provides injury update ahead of Watford game

Jose Mourinho news

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has said that defender Luke Shaw will be fit to play for the Old Trafford side against Watford on Saturday.

He is saying this just under a week after the defender suffered a concussion while on international duty with England.

Ahead of the game against Javi Gracia's side, Mourinho has also revealed in a pre-match press conference that Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera are unlikely to be fit for the game.

“Fellaini is a doubt. Ander Herrera is a doubt – he had one little problem in one ankle in training during the week, so he's a doubt," he said, according to the club's official website.

He also went further to reveal that new signing Diogo Dalot, and Marcos Rojo are in the final stages of their recovery, and if they can play the full game in United's Under-23s’ encounter with Reading on Friday night, they will be ready for first team selection from next week.

United are preparing to face a Watford side that have won all their opening league games this season.

A defeat for United will not be a confidence booster ahead of the start of their UEFA Champions League campaign away to Young Boys next Wednesday.
