Manchester United fans to unveil Luke Shaw banner against CSKA Moscow

Published Add your comment

A group of Russian Manchester United fans have made a banner for Luke Shaw, telling the left-back to “be strong” as he continues his recovery from a serious leg injury.

The England international suffered a double fracture of his right leg in United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven last month but could return to action before the end of the season.

Wishing him well with his recovery, the South Russian Reds will unveil their special banner at the Arena Khimki, where United take on CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils have only lost once since Shaw suffered his horrendous injury - the 3-0 defeat to Arsenal before the international break - and will be looking to continue building momentum in the Russian capital following their impressive 3-0 win over Everton on Saturday.

For Louis van Gaal, the most important thing will be to avoid a defeat which would leave his side with a real battle to qualify for the Champions League knockout rounds.

A point would suffice in Moscow

Ten points is usually enough to secure a place in the Round of 16 - it’s delicately poised in Group B at the moment, with all four teams on three points after two matches played - so a point would suffice for the Premier League giants in Moscow.

In two weeks time, United welcome CKSA back to Old Trafford, before looking to exact revenge over PSV in Manchester towards the end of November.

Depending on how United fare over the coming weeks, much could depend on their final group stage match against Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena on December 8.

Marcos Rojo should continue at left-back

It will be fascinating to see who Van Gaal selects at left-back on Wednesday night.

Daley Blind is capable of playing in that position, but Marcos Rojo performed well against Everton last weekend and should retain his place in the starting line-up.
