Manchester United have been given a timely injury boost, with Luke Shaw spotted back in training.
After the Red Devils’ 3-1 victory over Everton, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was extremely vocal in regards to poor fixture scheduling from the FA. Luke Shaw was one of a few Manchester United players who’d leave the field injured that day.
On initial diagnosis, the United left-back would be ruled out for a month with the hamstring issue. With games coming thick and fast due to the condensed season, injures were always going to be more common and the powers-that-be should be looking to protect players’ welfare.
Unfortunately for Shaw, it came at a time where the Englishman was playing some of his best football. The left-back was flying both domestically and in Europe, which is no surprise given he had Alex Telles breathing down his neck.
To see him go down at that time was a tough one to take. However, it seems as though the problem wasn’t as bad as first feared.
United have seemingly been handed an injury boost as the Reds star was spotted back in training after three weeks out. Thanks to @UTDReport for the photo.

This season is all about squad rotation. Having two top-quality left-backs both fit and available, who offer slightly different things, is absolutely massive for Solskjaer.
I guess you can say it was fortunate Shaw’s injury came just as United were about to go on a two-week hiatus due to the international break. That has seemingly given him plenty of time to recover without missing much domestic football, which is obviously a big plus.
I’d be surprised if we see Shaw start this weekend after a few weeks out but it’s great to see him back in training nonetheless. Hopefully, he’ll be fully fit and ready to go in the not too distant future.
