Manchester United star was spotted at the training grounds and is expected to make a possible return in the upcoming matches.
Luke Shaw suffered a hamstring injury in the match against Everton and was forced off the pitch, but Manchester United were able to pull out a 3-1 win on the day. The injury was bad news for the Red Devils as Shaw was in impressive form this season and had nailed down a spot in the first-team.
But unfortunately history repeated itself, the former Southampton star picked up a knock just as he was getting back into form, and he had to sit out the following matches and heartbreakingly missed the international games despite getting a Three Lions callup after years.
In his absence though, United’s deadline day signing, Alex Telles was put in at left-back and has been doing his job well enough till now. The club have won all their games till now with him starting.
The Red Devils will be taking on Southampton next and it seems like Telles will again be starting at left-back but the Englishman was spotted at the training grounds as reported by The Peoples Person and appears to be making a fast recovery to win back his place in the starting XI once again.
But getting back his permanent spot in the team may not be an easy job for Shaw this time, as Telles is expected to put a fight as well, although the Brazilian is in his early days at the club. He is yet to be properly tested in an United jersey.
- The match against Shaw’s former club might be the one that proves crucial for the Brazilian and it could go a long way in deciding his standing in this squad. One thing is clear though, the Red Devils have two very talented players fighting for the same spot. And that can only be a good thing for the club.
