Shaw, Martinez, Mount - Manchester United injury news and return dates
Manchester United picked up a third-straight Premier League win on Sunday afternoon, but their dramatic result against Aston Villa did not come without a possible worry. England regular Luke Shaw was withdrawn by Erik ten Hag as a precautionary measure at half-time.
United have been hit harder than most when it comes to injuries this season. However, while selection problems have eased somewhat, they were still missing five players for the Villa match and Shaw added to their woes after he was forced off to be replaced by Victor Lindelof.
Relegation-threatened Luton Town are next up for Ten Hag's side on Sunday afternoon (4.30pm), so there will be sufficient time for Shaw and others to recover. Here, we take a closer look at who's on the United treatment table with predicted return dates;

What Ten Hag has said: "Was precaution, Luke Shaw, he gave some messages about complaints. We know his history with too many injuries and we couldn't go into the risk. [It was a] very important game, but we can't miss him for six weeks."
Predicted return date: February
