Man United in big trouble as in-form defender suffers hamstring injury

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw reportedly sustained a hamstring injury in yesterday’s derby defeat.

The defender was substituted during the second half of United’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.

And the Manchester Evening News claim he has picked up a hamstring injury.

The report adds the 21-year-old will now miss Thursday’s Europa League clash at Feyenoord.

But United are hopeful he will be available for next Sunday’s Premier League trip to Watford.

Shaw missed the bulk of last season with a broken leg.And he was a doubt for yesterday’s Manchester derby after he withdrew from the England squad before their World Cup qualifier with Slovakia.Marcos Rojo, who is yet to play a minute of Premier League football this season, is set to replace Shaw at left-back.

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United lost the first derby clash of the season with a 2-1 margin against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. The blues came forward in the first half of the game with full speed and took the game to United at Old Trafford.

United played much better in the second half and had most of the chances which were spoiled by non-clinical finishing from the main strikers.

The loss extended the head-to-head lead in favour of Pep to 8-3 and the question raised after the match by fans and pundits alike was, did Jose get the team wrong?

Mourinho threw in a surprise in the team selection by replacing Anthony Martial and Juan Mata with Henrik Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard. Both the players had injury concerns before the City clash.

Lingard sustained an ankle twist in United’s first match of the season in the Community Shield against Leicester City and had not been selected in a single game since then. Mkhitaryan sustained a thigh injury in his international game for Armenia and was suspected to be out of the field for 10 days.
