Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw will get a chance to impress in the coming games as he tries to fight his way back into Jose Mourinho’s plans, Press Association Sport has reported.
Shaw, who spent 10 months out following a double leg break suffered in September 2015, has seen his comeback disrupted by minor injuries.
Those issues have restricted the 21-year-old’s playing time, and he has not featured since limping off at half-time in the EFL Cup quarterfinal against West Ham seven weeks ago.
But the England international has been training since the start of last week.
Mourinho chose not to select him for the first leg of the EFL Cup semifinal against Hull or Sunday’s league clash with Liverpool, but he is now set to get his chance.
Saturday’s league trip to Stoke is followed by the return leg at Hull before United’s FA Cup fourth-round clash with Wigan and the league match against Hull on Feb. 1.
Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind have regularly played at left-back under Mourinho, while Marcos Rojo, who has impressed in central defence recently, can also play there.
