Luke Shaw could feature for Manchester United at Watford despite being concussed in England’s Nations League defeat to Spain last Saturday.

The 23-year-old superbly set-up Marcus Rashford’s opener on his first international start since September 2015 – an appearance that came just a week before suffering a double leg break in a Champions League tie.

But Shaw appeared to suffer another serious injury just minutes into second half of the 2-1 defeat to Spain as his head clattered into Dani Carvajal before bouncing off the turf.

Shaw remained with England for two nights of assessment before returning to United on Monday and Mourinho has revealed there is a chance he could feature at Watford this weekend.

“I don’t know, we still have a training session,” the United boss said of the defender’s availability.

“The only situation we have to analyse is if you are going to play him when during the week he was not training with the team or if, even so, we decide to play him.”

Ander Herrera is a doubt for Saturday’s trip to Vicarage Road with an ankle injury and Marouane Fellaini returned early from international duty with a back complaint.

Marcos Rojo and Diogo Dalot will step up their return from injury as United’s Under-23s face Reading at Old Trafford on Friday evening.

Mourinho provided no update on Phil Jones, who came off with a hamstring complaint in the defeat to Tottenham.
