What is the latest update on Luke Shaw’s injury?

Shaw was up and able to communicate with fans shortly after the England match, in what will be seen as a positive for Manchester United supporters.

But he was replaced by Leicester’s Ben Chilwell in the England squad and played no part in the Three Lions’ 1-0 win over Switzerland.

The defender has been confirmed as having suffered concussion and will therefore be unable to train with the Three Lions or Man United until he receives clearance from a doctor.

He wrote on Twitter: “Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands. I’m a fighter so I will be back soon!”

When will Luke Shaw return for Manchester United?

Shaw will be unavailable to face Watford on Saturday due to Premier League rules.

Guidelines from the top flight and FA state that players who suffer concussion can only return to action after seven days.

And Gareth Southgate said he will have to miss the match at Watford next Saturday but should be fit soon after.

The England manager commented: “All being well, he has a mandatory seven-day period that he has to serve with the concussion, but he should be back in the fold as soon as that’s done.”

Any lengthy absence would have been rotten luck for the former Southampton man, who recently revealed he almost had his leg amputated during a 17-month layoff following a double fracture in September 2015.
