“Luke Shaw, we have to see. I don't think it's too bad but we have to wait 24 hours. We'll have a diagnosis and we will know more."
Ten Hag spoke more about the Brazilian’s injury, noting, “It’s difficult to say. Let’s wait for 24 hours and then we’ll know more.
"I don’t know [about Antony]. Everyone has seen he came off. I can tell you it is serious but we have to wait a minimum [of] 24 hours, then we know probably more about the status of the injury."
Manchester United hope that they will have a full complement of players when they play Manchester City in the Premier League as they look to stop the Cityzens from equalling thei historic treble from 1999.
