Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho may supposedly have to deal with further injury concerns with both Alexis Sanchez and Luke Shaw doubtful for Monday’s Premier League meeting versus Tottenham Hotspur.
Sanchez was completely excluded from the matchday squad for the 3-2 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday and shortly after the game, Mourinho confirmed that the Chilean could be sidelined for around one or two weeks with a minor knock.
On the other hand, Shaw, who has been one of United’s better performers this term, is said to have suffered a couple of knocks during the trip to the South Coast, where he provided an assist for Romelu Lukaku’s goal.
According to ESPN, both players are now uncertain to feature in the Monday night showdown against Mauricio Pochettino’s side – a game which could define United’s league campaign despite the season having just begun.
In the absence of Sanchez, the United attack appeared flat during the surprise defeat to Brighton and Mourinho would surely push the Chilean to make the Spurs game, given the importance of the fixture.
Elsewhere, Shaw has made a positive start with a goal and an assist in his opening two games and hopefully, he can recover for the Spurs visit to avoid Ashley Young from capitalising on the situation.
