Reason why Luke Shaw was absent during Manchester United vs Tottenham match




This weekend, Manchester United will be competing in the Premier League once again, and Erik ten Hag has provided an explanation of his starting lineup for the match.

It has been verified by Erik ten Hag that the decision to leave Luke Shaw out of the Manchester United team scheduled to play Tottenham Hotspur was made at the “last minute.”

During the match against West Ham that took place before Christmas, Shaw sustained an injury, and he has not been available since then. Despite the fact that he was in the running to be included in the team to play Tottenham, he was not selected once more.

In spite of the fact that Casemiro and Martinez have been gone for extended periods of time, they have both made their long-awaited comeback to the matchday squad by being named to the bench.


The only alteration coach Ten Hag has made to the team that won the FA Cup against Wigan earlier in the week is that Christian Eriksen has taken the place of Scott McTominay in the starting lineup.

This indicates that Eriksen will begin the game in the middle of the field with Kobbie Mainoo and Bruno Fernandes. Ten Hag was asked about his team selection prior to the start of the game, and he responded to the question by saying, “They play with a high line, and we have seen the qualities from Christian Eriksen against Villa, what he can do for the team, to see the pass and give the pass.”

The fact that players like Casemiro and Martinez are coming back is a positive development. We had also hoped to have Luke Shaw available today, but he decided not to participate at the eleventh hour. On the other hand, it is irrelevant because, at the end of the day, we have to come out on top, regardless of who is coming in.

“It could be [an exciting game], so we have to defend very well to avoid conceding chances, but I think when we do attacking transitions well, in our possession game, we can take some joy from it.”
