The full-back came off in last night’s game and has now been confirmed as a doubt for this weekend.
It didn’t seem like Manchester United’s injury crisis could get much worse, but reports from the England camp suggest just that.
Man Utd left back Luke Shaw is a doubt for Saturday’s trip to Arsenal with a hamstring injury, although he says he’s hoping to be fit

Shaw was taken off in England’s game against Scotland last night after 66 minutes, apparently only as a precaution. However the hamstring injury he picked up is apparently bad enough to make him questionable for the visit to the Emirates stadium.
Manchester United are already missing Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Rafael, Phil Jones and Jonny Evans amongst others at the back, and not even Louis Van Gaal has any idea what his back four could end up being at the weekend.
Fortunately Arsenal are also suffering from a wave of injury problems, and the two makeshift back fours on display could make for an entertaining game.
Shaw has been one of United’s few steady presences this season, after recovering from an early season injury.
