In a significant setback for Manchester United, Luke Shaw has suffered a muscle injury, leading to an anticipated extended absence from the field.
Manchester United has confirmed Shaw’s muscle injury and is currently evaluating the severity of the problem. United’s statement indicates that “the England left-back is expected to be sidelined for several weeks.”
Shaw has evolved into a pivotal player under manager Erik ten Hag, participating in 27 matches last season and commencing both of United’s initial two games this season.
However, the alternative option, Tyrell Malacia, is also injured, which has led to speculation about whether the club will seek additional cover before the transfer window closes.
United clinched a 1-0 victory against Wolves during the Premier League’s opening weekend but suffered a 2-0 loss to Tottenham in their subsequent fixture. The team is gearing up to face Nottingham Forest in their upcoming match, followed by challenging encounters against Arsenal and Brighton.
As United faces a demanding series of matches, they will aim to determine the extent of Shaw’s injury immediately.
