Manager Louis van Gaal confirmed after Saturday's game that Shaw was held out because of a tight hamstring, according to the Daily Mirror.

Shaw's absence was a bit of a surprise given that van Gaal didn't mention anything during his Friday press conference. The severity of the injury wasn't disclosed, so it's unclear if he'll have a chance to be fit for Wednesday's match against Newcastle.

Shaw is not in the 18-man squad for Manchester United's match against Sunderland on Saturday.

Louis van Gaal will go with a back four of Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans and Antonio Valencia, with Paddy McNair the only available defender on the bench.

Shaw (ankle) started Sunday's match against Southampton, but he was subbed off after 63 minutes, finishing with one tackle, one interception, and three crosses (one accurate). After the match, manager Louis van Gaal confirmed it was not injury related, but that Shaw still needs to develop match rhythm after being absent through injury.

Shaw seems to have a place in LVG's starting XI given that nearly all players were fit for the match, so it wouldn't be surprising if he was back in there for next Saturday's tilt with QPR.

Manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday that Shaw (ankle) is fit and available for Sunday's match against Southampton.

Now the only question will be whether Shaw can fight his way into the starting XI, a more difficult task now that van Gaal has nearly a fully fit squad aside from Ashley Young (groin).

The ankle injury Shaw suffered during Monday's FA Cup match against Yeovil Town is considered minor, and he could play in Saturday's Premier League match against Southampton, The Guardian reports.

Shaw dealt with an ankle injury earlier this year that caused him to miss more than a month, which is why there were serious concerns about the latest issue. However, he'll likely be available, though it's unclear if he'll get the starting nod.

Manager Louis van Gaal indicated Tuesday that Shaw (ankle) would not return Friday against Newcastle.

Van Gaal specifically said he did not believe any injured players would return for the Boxing Day fixture, which also includes Marouane Fellaini (illness) and Ander Herrera (muscular injury). Shaw's next opportunity to return will come Sunday against Spurs, though it remains unclear if Shaw will break back into the starting XI.

Shaw could return to action on Boxing Day after injuring his ankle in late November, according to the Daily Mail.

Shaw is nearing a return to full training, and may be available for selection next week if the next few days of training continue to show solid progress for the defender.
