Shaw suffers hamstring injury

Luke Shaw has suffered a hamstring injury and will miss the opening game of the season against Swansea City on Saturday.

The England international, a summer signing from Southampton, is likely to be sidelined for around four weeks.

Shaw sat out the friendly victory against Valencia at Old Trafford due to the problem and faces a wait before making his competitive debut for the club.

United confirmed on Wednesday that the 19-year-old will wear the no.3 shirt vacated by Patrice Evra.
