Manchester United and England full-back Luke Shaw is expected to have groin scan during the early hours of tomorrow. This injury could see him out of action for almost a month.

Luke Shaw, who recently recovered from a broken leg injury, could be facing more time on the sidelines as doctors take a look at his groin.

The 21-year-old was subbed off in the 85th-minute during Manchester United’s 3-1 away loss to Watford last Sunday.

Shaw has featured in all of Manchester United’s Premier League games this season, but it looks as though the left-back will now be out for just under a month.

Jose Mourinho criticized the England International last Sunday, blaming him for Watford’s second goal of the match. The Special One stated that Shaw was too far away from Watford’s Nordin Amrabat; a mistake which allowed Watford to score their second goal of the match.

“Their second goal is a mistake that goes against our plan and our training because our intention was for their wing-backs to be pressed and not let them progress,” said Mourinho.

“Nordin Amrabat receives the ball and our left-back Luke Shaw is 25 meters from him instead of five.”

Shaw is believed to have sustained the groin injury while on International duty. He was withdrawn from the England squad early and sent back to Manchester in order to recover.

Luke then went on to make an appearance in Manchester United’s Derby defeat against neighbors Manchester City.

The 21-year-old did not feature during Manchester United’s 1-0 loss away to Feyenoord prior to last Sunday’s match against Watford.

During Manchester United’s away tie in the Europa League, Jose Mourinho opted for Marcos Rojo in the left-back role. Rojo is now expected to fill in Shaw’s gap in the starting eleven, but Matteo Darmian is also available to play in the same position.
