Luke Shaw news

Shaw out for three months with hamstring issue

Manchester United have suffered a huge blow with Luke Shaw ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

The left-back has endured another difficult season with the Red Devils and he is now sidelined for three months with a hamstring injury.

The news is a huge blow for the Red Devils, considering they have no fit left-backs in the first-team squad at the present point of time.

Tyrell Malacia was initially anticipated to return in early January, but he is now sidelined until March at least after suffering a setback.

In the absence of the duo, Victor Lindelof could have plenty of responsibility from the left-back role in the coming games.

The Swede had a tough outing against Aston Villa from the role, but he looked much more assured versus Luton Town last weekend.

United manager Erik ten Hag will be hoping that Lindelof can find the consistency to fill the huge void left by the injured Shaw.
