Manchester United’s injury issues to start this season have been well documented. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is managing with one hand tied behind his back – though some of it’s his own fault as he chose to thin out the squad.
Back in late-August, Luke Shaw was actually the first to come down with the injury bug, as the left-back picked up a hamstring issue in a harrowing home loss to Crystal Palace.
Anyway today, the United defender handed Solskjaer a welcome boost – by returning to training ahead of Arsenal’s visit to Old Trafford on Monday night football.
The 24-year-old started the season as the first-choice left-back, though it’s fair to say his first few games weren’t all-that convincing.
Sometimes he looked lost positionally, while getting up and down the field proved to be difficult at times, particularly towards the end of games.
Shaw does look in excellent shape in the above photo, though, as he looks to win his place back from veteran Ashley Young. I would like to add that the ex-Aston Villa man has actually done pretty good in Shaw’s absence, mind.
Anyway, United’s game against Arsenal has probably come just too soon for Shaw, though it’d be nice to see him back out on the football field before the international break – which starts in just over one weeks’ time.
