Luke Shaw issues Man United rallying cry ahead of Arsenal trip
Luke Shaw believes that Manchester United's injury crisis is the perfect time for some of the club's fringe players to perform
Luke Shaw believes that Manchester United’s injury crisis represents the perfect time for the Red Devils’ fringe players to “step up”.
United could be without up to 12 first-team players for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Arsenal after Louis van Gaal’s side suffered a number of new injuries during the international break.
However, England international Shaw believes that the situation is the perfect opportunity for some of United’s less-experienced talent to perform.
“I think it’s time for people to step up,” Shaw said.
“The players who are not getting game time, who are frustrated on the bench, can come in for a massive game like Arsenal that everyone will want to play in.
“We know we’ve picked up a lot of injuries, especially in defence, where it’s always changing each time.
“We’ve obviously picked up another injury with Daley Blind, but we’ve got to deal with that and try to get around this week and go firing into the Arsenal game.
“Everyone will be working hard and focusing on this weekend and come Saturday we’ll be ready to go.”
