Luke Shaw could feature against Leicester after suffering minor groin tear

Scans have revealed Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has suffered a minor groin tear, according to BBC.

They claim he will miss Wednesday’s EFL Cup tie against Northampton, but is a 50-50 for Man United’s clash with Leicester City on Saturday.

He played 85 minutes of United’s 3-1 defeat to Watford and was criticised by the Portuguese boss after the game.

There were fears that he could be sidelined for over four weeks, but it seems Shaw’s groin injury is not as bad as it first seemed.

After returning from his double leg fracture last month he has been an indispensable member of Mourinho’s squad, starting in each of United’s first five league matches.

While he was far from Nordin Amrabat in the build-up to Watford’s second goal, he wasn’t solely to blame for the loss and in fact had a decent showing compared to some of his team-mates.

Hopes are he is fit enough to play against Leicester, because we’ve already witnessed what his replacement Marcos Rojo was capable of against Feyenoord and I’m sure the Argentinian won’t last against the Premier League champions.
