Louis van Gaal: Injury update on Luke Shaw, Rafael and Marouane Fellaini


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says key players are all back in the squad and ready to feature against Southampton on Sunday.

The Red Devils welcome defender Luke Shaw and midfielders Daley Blind and Marouane Fellaini back in the squad for what will be a key game in the race for a top-four finish this season.

"I have to tell you that we have only one injured player, Ashley Young, it's unbelievable!" van Gaal said.

"They [Shaw and Rafael] can play. They are both not injured.

"Rafael Da Silva was of course operated on [his cheekbone], and maybe we don't take any risk with him, but Shaw can also play.

"Blind has already trained for more than one week with the group and Fellaini also trained with us already this week.

"Another point is, of course, match rhythm, but everybody is healthy and can play except Ashley Young."

Young, 28, suffered a hamstring injury in United's 1-1 draw against Stoke City at the start of the year and is expected to be ruled out for weeks.
