Manchester United fans were left wondering before kick-off today, as yesterday Louis van Gaal confirmed that Robin van Persie was the only injury doubt for the Sunderland game. However that wasn’t the case, as Luke Shaw wasn’t included in the match day squad.
According to the Metro, Louis van Gaal confirmed that Luke Shaw missed the game due to tiredness, and he isn’t injured.
This is a bit of a concern. His injury record hasn’t been great since he came to the club in the summer, and when you couple that with Van Gaal labelling unfit in the summer it does make you worry.
Hopefully Luke Shaw can put this behind him after getting a string of games in the side, and return to the type of form that we’ve seen him display whilst in a Southampton jersey.
Is Luke Shaw one for the future? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
