Man Utd team news: Jose Mourinho’s ‘leaked’ starting XI for Watford clash – no Luke Shaw | Football | Sport
The Manchester Evening News claim Luke Shaw has not been included in the squad after his horrific during the international break.
Shaw suffered a concussion while on international duty with England when he collided with Spain defender Dani Carvajal during the Three Lions’ 2-1 defeat at Wembley last Saturday.
The defender was taken off on a stretcher having been given oxygen while being tended to by medical staff for five minutes.
He returned to Manchester United on Monday, having previously been looked after by England staff, before Mourinho revealed he was legible to face the Hornets on Saturday.
But it seems today’s trip to Vicarage Road has come too soon for the former Southampton man with Ashley Youn expected to fill his place.
United’s ‘leaked’ XI: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Lindelof, Young, Fellaini, Pogba, Matic, Lingard, Sanchez, Lukaku.
Mourinho recently admitted he was unsure if Shaw would be making an appearance, while also admitted Marouane Fellaini was a doubt.
“I don’t know,” Mourinho originally said of Shaw’s chances of playing.
“We still have a training session, contrary to some news, to some opinions, by the protocol point of view and according to our doctor, he will be free to play.
“The only situation we have to analyse is if you are going to play him when, during the week, he was not training with the team or even so he decides to play.
“Fellaini is a doubt. Ander Herrera is out. He had one little problem in one medical in training during the week, so he is also a doubt.
“Dalot and Rojo play tonight with Under-23s and if they play 90 minutes then it will be the end of their recovering process and we will consider them to be back next week for full competition.
“It’s clear (the test at Watford). Four matches, 12 points.
“We know that three of these matches were at home, so in relation to the 12 points we can speak about a little advantage in relation to other teams with two home and away, but fantastic start.
“Twelve points is great for them, good victories at home, strong performances, congratulations to Javi and the players and to the club overall, because it was a very good start.”
