Luke Shaw is set to feature for the Red Devils against Swansea in the Carabao Cup, after he was left out of the Under-23s’ squad that played against Liverpool on Monday night.
The England international has found himself on the sidelines, seemingly owing to the fact that he has not impressed Jose Mourinho enough to be entrusted on the flanks. However, reports claim that he is in line to feature in United’s next fixture, as they head to the Liberty Stadium for their fourth-round tie on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old played his part in the reserves’ last fixture against West Ham. Despite losing 4-2 to the Irons’ Under-23 team, the left-back operated for the entire 90 minutes on the left flank.
In addition to Shaw, the reserves’ team were unaccompanied by Scott McTominay, Axel Tuanzebe, and goalkeeper Joel Pereira against the Reds, portraying the possibility of these players featuring in the game against the Swans.
The United gaffer, when asked about the Englishman’s progress ahead of the trip to Huddersfield, where they suffered a humiliating defeat, just remarked that he was “working”.
Shaw has failed to feature for the Red Devils first team since appearing as a substitute in the Carabao Cup third round against Championship side Burton Albion on September 20.
The ex-Saints man is yet to make an impact which could blow the likes of Mourinho this season, and has been struggling to manage his way back to the first team ever since his return from a horrible injury which made him drop down the pecking.
The Mancunian supporters expect the player to earn back his lost reputation, provided he plays against Swansea on Tuesday.
