Manchester United

Luke Shaw received a fitness boost from Manchester United prior to the Everton encounter.

Shaw, who hasn’t played since the season’s opening game, is back in action before a pivotal stretch of games.

Luke Shaw’s return to training after a three-month layoff has given Manchester United a significant boost ahead of their trip to Everton this Sunday.

Due to a “muscle issue,” the England international left-back has not appeared for United since the team’s opening game of the season, a 2-0 loss against Tottenham Hotspur in August.

Major injuries at United haven’t helped the team’s dismal start to the season under Erik ten Hag. Tyrell Malacia, Shaw’s backup, hasn’t been available for United since the preseason, thus the team had to acquire Sergio Reguilon on loan from Tottenham in order to have more coverage. During Shaw’s absence this season, Sofyan Amrabat, Diogo Dalot, and Victor Lindelof have also had to step in at left back.

Shaw’s return coincides with a crucial stretch of games for Ten Hag’s team, who have dropped five of their first 12 Premier League games and are about to lose the Champions League in the group stage.

In the Champions League, United travels to Galatasaray on Sunday after visiting Goodison Park; a loss there would eliminate them from the group stages.

However, Christian Eriksen and top scorer Rasmus Hojlund have had to withdraw from Denmark’s squad ahead of the international break, meaning that United are still without numerous key players due to injuries.

While Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, and Jonny Evans are also sidelined due to injuries, United is confident that goalkeeper Andre Onana will be able to play against Everton after suffering an injury last week while representing Cameroon in a World Cup qualifier.
