Luke Shaw and Ashley Young Play in Man United’s U23 Clash

The very often injured Luke Shaw is once again back on the comeback trail. He took a major step forward tonight, as did teammate Ashley Young as the duo played about an hour in Manchester United u23’s 1-1 draw with Swansea City tonight. Shaw sustained ligament damage in his foot last April, and it appears his return might be ahead of schedule.

The young left back wasn’t expected to return until next month. The very versatile Young, who adds to United’s depth at multiple positions, had been slated to come back in October, but he also seems to be convalescing much better and faster than expected.

United are an extremely healthy side, with Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo the only long term injuries. The Daily Mail says that Rojo won’t be back in action for awhile yet however. The Mail Online writes that: “While Shaw and Young approach a return, Mourinho does not expect fellow long-term absentee Marcos Rojo to come back from knee ligament damage until December or January.”

Of course, the injury report depends on how you classify Zlatan Ibrahimovic now too. Word is the free agent is closing on a new deal to keep him at Old Trafford, and his knee repair and rehabilitation has him scheduled to return to action at the end of this calendar year, or perhaps early 2018.
