Van Gaal delivers latest Man United injury update after Arsenal win
The Manchester United manager confirms that Luke Shaw has suffered an ankle injury
Louis van Gaal cursed Manchester United’s “unbelievable” injury problems after Luke Shaw was forced off with an ankle issue during Saturday’s 2-1 win at Arsenal.
The summer signing had to be substituted after just 16 minutes in north London, with the left-back replaced by Ashley Young.
It is unbelievable the injuries we have had

And Van Gaal was less-than-pleased to see United pick up yet another injury after Kieran Gibbs’ own-goal and Wayne Rooney’s strike handed his side victory.
“Luke Shaw has an ankle problem,” said Van Gaal, whose side moved up to fourth place in the Premier League table.
“It is not the same injury as what he had in advance of the game. We have to wait and see. It is unbelievable the injuries we have had.”
The Dutchman is keen to see his side build on Saturday’s win, adding: “It is the first away victory and the players are very excited but it is just one victory.
“We have to confirm that with further victories and then we can say we have the spirit and can start looking upstairs and not downstairs.”
