Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently confirmed that Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic have been sent to Dubai in order to recover from their injuries.
The duo is expected to be back in contention as soon as they’re done with their warm-weather training. Luke Shaw has been on the sidelines due to a hamstring issue ever since the defeat to Crystal Palace in August. Whereas, Nemanja Matic was last seen in the Europa League group game against AZ Alkmaar prior to the Euro 2020 Qualifiers.
Neither of the players is in the travelling squad which faces FK Partizan on Thursday night. Nevertheless, Solskjaer states that both players should be back in the squad by the weekend.
“They’ve gone past the injury stage and brought staff with them to go work with them so hopefully not too long, I expect them back in Manchester for the weekend and then let’s see when they’ll be available.”
Manchester United with four points is currently on level terms with Partizan in their respective group. A win for either team will propel them to a three-point cushion at the top.
