Manchester United have received a big boost following the news that defender Luke Shaw has been declared fit for the crucial Premier League clash with Chelsea next week Saturday.

The 23-year-old sustained an ankle injury in the Red Devils’ last league game against Newcastle United which ended in a 4-3 victory for Manchester United at Old Trafford.

According to The Sun, the ankle injury is a minor one and he’s expected to face Chelsea on Saturday, October 19.

The injury forced him to pull out of the England squad ahead of the upcoming games against Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup finalists Croatia and Spain in the Uefa Nations League (UNL).

His place has already been taken by Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell, who also replaced Luke Shaw in the team for the Three Lions’ last game against Switzerland.

The Manchester United star had earlier suffered a concussion in the 2-1 home loss to Spain in the Three Lions’ Uefa Nations League (UNL) opener before being replaced by the Leicester City left-back.

Chilwell made his debut as England defeated Switzerland 1-0 at the Wembley Stadium courtesy a 54th minute strike from Marcus Rashford.

Luke Shaw has been one of the standout performers for Manchester United in the new campaign which has started on a disappointing note for the Old Trafford side.

He has started seven of his team’s Premier League games this season.

Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen will not forget the past records manager Jose Mourinho has had at the Stamford Bridge since joining the Red Devils and he will not give him a chance on Saturday.

Mourinho travels with his boys to the Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League game.

Since his leaving Chelsea as their manager, Mourinho has never won a game at the Stamford Bridge as an opposition and Owen thinks the same will repeat itself knowing the unstable state of the United team.

It is also important to note that in addition to the fine form of the Blues side, they are yet to be beaten in the Premier League this season and have lost just once at home in their last 16 games at the Stamford Bridge.

Owen stated that the United game against Newcastle where the Mourinho side had come from behind to secure a win I worthy of note which will make the game a good one to see.

However, The West London side will hope on their fine record and a great form of Belgium star player Eden Hazard who has been the man for the team this season to fire again against their visitors.

Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri has noted that Hazard need not to join the Spanish giants before winning the Ballon d’Or award.

The future of the Belgium international at the Stamford Bridge has been subjected to speculations with the player hinting on leaving the club.

Hazard had earlier refused to sign a new deal with the Blues before having a change of heart following his new form under manager Sarri.

Hazard recently said he is ready to have talks with the club so as to lay all speculations linking him away to rest.

There are suggestions that the Belgium international remains happy at the Stamford Bridge but seeks a move away from the club because of his wish to win the Ballon d’Or award.

There are insinuations that a player can only win the Ballon d’Or award if he plays in the biggest clubs in Spain and Hazard must have bought into that.

However, the Italian boss stated that it is possible for the player to win a trophy while playing in England under Chelsea.

He stressed that Hazard has a good chance once they are able to deliver the Champions League title as well as Belgium emerging as the European champions.
