Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw is a big doubt for the Everton game this weekend. This is according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who informed pressmen during his pre-match media conference on Friday. The Norwegian tactician revealed that he’s not certain that Shaw would be able to make it in time for the Everton clash at home on Saturday afternoon.
Portuguese player Dalot was the replacement for Shaw at left-back in the first half of the Villa encounter which ended in a 1-0 defeat for Solskjaerand Manchester United thanks to a Courtney Hause header in the final quarter. He produced a bullet header which found his way into the back of the net off the corner kick from midfielder Douglas Luiz. The former Manchester City player would have enjoyed providing the assist for the winning goal at the home of Manchester United. In the absence of the injured Harry Maguire, Portuguese international Bruno Fernandes took the armband and he could have rescued a point for Manchester United but he blasted his spot kick over the bar after Hause was adjudged to have handled the ball. Fernandes took the armband after Maguire went off injured with a calf injury around the midway point of the second half.
Apart from Shaw, Manchester United boss Solskjaer also talked about Maguire. The Red Devils manager stated that the England international will miss the Everton game due to the aforementioned calf problem. In addition to Maguire, young Ivorian attacker Amad Diallo will also miss the game. Diallo has not featured for Manchester United this season as a result of injury.
