Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over Perth Glory was a pretty comfortable one, with the lads getting a good work out before the sterner tests to come.
There was one concern, though, as Luke Shaw limped off the field with an apparent hamstring injury.
Well thankfully, the issue wasn’t a serious one and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did seemingly substitute him as a precaution. As per the official United website, the Reds have been given an injury boost, as the 24-year-old was back in training on Monday after the injury scare.
Make no mistake about it, Shaw is a key player for United going into 2019/20. After all, he is the current Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year winner – and he’ll be looking to build upon that accolade.
It was the first season where the left-back has played with consistency. He remained injury-free for the most part and that is certainly benefitting both him and United.
I was pretty gutted when he limped off against Perth as I thought it was going to be more of the same for Shaw, but it’s great to hear that there is no problem and hopefully, the left-back will be involved against the old enemy, Leeds United, on Wednesday.
