Luke Shaw has taken to Facebook to update Manchester United fans about his progress after returning home from Eindhoven, where he underwent surgery after suffering a double fracture of his right leg.

The England international posted a photo of himself at home on crutches, his right leg bandaged up, alongside the caption: “Long road ahead but so happy to be able to put weight on my leg again! 😄 #‎MUFC”.

Shaw underwent two successful operations on his leg after breaking it against PSV in the Champions League group stages earlier this month, but is not expected to return to action until March at the earliest.

Shaw was arguably Manchester United’s standout performer during the opening weeks of the season, but the Red Devils are currently coping well without the 20-year-old left-back.

Louis van Gaal’s side may have lost in Eindhoven, but they have won all three matches since then - against Southampton, Ipswich Town and Sunderland.

Darmian to stay at left-back?

However, there are bigger tests on the horizon, starting next weekend against Arsenal.

That is followed by tough-looking fixtures against Everton, CSKA Moscow and local rivals Manchester City.

Van Gaal deployed Matteo Darmian at left-back in the 3-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday and may opt to do the same against Arsenal next Sunday.

Man Utd fans react to update

Manchester United fans, though, are eager to see Shaw return to action as quickly as possible - and here are some of the best responses to the former Southampton starlet’s Facebook post.

And there was this light-hearted reply...
