Why did Shaw come off against Granada?
Luke Shaw's half-time substitution as Manchester United beat Granada 2-0 on Thursday, may have caused some supporters to wonder and worry about the left-back's fitness, especially with a tough Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur just days away.
But Shaw, who was booked two minutes before the break for a foul on Antonio Puertas, did not return to the field when the second half began. Brazilian defender Alex Telles came on in his place at left-back.

“I had to protect Luke,”replied the manager.
“But I think and hope he should be okay for the weekend.”
Shaw will have to miss at least one game in April, however - like Maguire and McTominay - his yellow card in the first leg against Granada means he will be suspended for the return match at Old Trafford due to an accumulation of cautions.
