The English left-back’s importance and how much he has been missed this season are highlighted by Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, who is elated at Luke Shaw’s return from the sidelines ahead of his side’s encounter against Everton on Sunday, November 26. Shaw has missed United’s last 16 matches due to a thigh injury and last featured for the Red Devils in their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in August, playing a crucial role in his side’s 2022-23 campaign. Ten Hag is optimistic about Shaw’s return bringing some stability amid the club’s struggles this season and has confirmed that Shaw is available for selection in Manchester United’s upcoming fixture against Everton at Goodison Park. Meanwhile, former Manchester United star Dimitar Berbatov has warned Casemiro that he will face competition for a place in Ten Hag’s starting XI after he returns to fitness, urging him to be prepared for potential replacements amid his injury woes. Casemiro made 12 appearances across competitions this season prior to his injury, scoring four goals and providing one assist.
