Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has issued an injury update on Luke Shaw.

The United left-back picked up an hamstring injury against Everton a few weeks back, and the Norwegian tactician has confirmed the England international will be out for about another month.

Speaking about Shaw’s expected return, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “I hope nearer to four, but with any occurrence of hamstring injuries you can’t risk anything and he’s still not near training with us.

“We’ll see how he reacts to the progress and the rehab work. Hopefully nearer four, but more probably closer to five or six.”

In his stead, Brazilian fullback Alex Telles has filled in superbly as his backup and also proved his worth with a solid performance against West Brom.
