Three Out, One Doubtful for Man United for Match Day 2

Luke Shaw SouthamptonManchester United are on top of the Barclays Premier League table at the moment and will face a difficult fixture against rejuvenated Arsenal side next Sunday.

However, for now, the Red Devils are focusing on the Champions League game against Wolfsburg and must earn all three points to push towards KO stage qualification.

United lost their opening group stage game and currently find themselves in third place.

As far as Manchester United’s team news is concerned, the English giants are going to be without certain key stars. Here is an update courtesy official Champions League website.

England international Luke Shaw is an obvious absentee after he broke his leg in the game against PSV Eindhoven on Match Day 1. The former Southampton star is expected to return next year.

Argentine defender Marcos Rojo who was supposed to be Shaw’s direct replacement is also out injured due to a hamstring injury.

Midfielder Nick Powell is also out injured with a hamstring injury. United have quality midfielders like Shweni, Schneiderlin, Carrick and Herrera so there is nothing really to worry as far as the midfield department is concerned.

Last but not the least is young defender Paddy McNair who is doubtful for the game against Wolfsburg.
