Manchester United Defender Luke Shaw Ruled Out Of Watford Clash After Suffering Concussion On England Duty

Luke Shaw is out of Manchester United’s trip to Watford on Saturday but will be available for their Champions League game in Berne.

Shaw was stretchered off with a head injury during England’s game with Spain and treated for concussion.

He has recovered and drove himself into training at United yesterday.

He still needs to pass certain tests, however, to be considered fit by the club doctor.

It appears, justifiably, that the club are going to err on the side of caution and give Shaw some extra days to recover.

United fly to Switzerland on Tuesday to take on BSC Young Boys in their Champions’ League group opener on Wednesday.

Shaw has been one of the standout players for the Red Devils after cementing his place in the starting XI.

He has started all four Premier League games under Jose Mourinho, and netted his first United goal in the season opener against Leicester.

Ashley Young is poised to stand in for the ex-Southampton ace, while full-back Diogo Dalot is ready to make his debut following his summer switch form Porto.

United go into the clash at Vicarage Road off the back of a 2-0 win against Burnley, and face a Hornets side that have won their opening four top-flight fixtures.
