Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has left out Luke Shaw from his squad to face Watford in a Premier League fixture this Saturday.
Shaw, who suffered a concussion while on international duty with England, did not travel with his team-mates for the game.
The left-back returned to United on Monday, having previously been looked after by England staff, before Mourinho revealed he was legible to face the Hornets on Saturday.
FA guidelines state a player who suffers concussion should not play for 14 days, but Shaw could feature against the Hornets after being treated in United’s “enhanced care setting”.
During his Friday press conference, Mourinho revealed that he will monitor Shaw in Friday afternoon’s final training session and has left the door open to Shaw featuring at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
Matteo Darmian could be Shaw’s replacement having been included in the travelling party, while Marouane Fellaini made the trip despite being a doubt with a back injury.
Sergio Romero is also back for the first time this season after recovering from a long-term knee injury.
