Luke Shaw hopes to be back in contention for Manchester United next week after suffering a nasty head injury while on England duty.
The left back received treatment for almost seven minutes on the Wembley pitch following a collision with Spain’s Dani Carvajal during Saturday’s Nations League defeat.
United said on their official website that suggestions Shaw is ‘obliged to serve a mandatory seven-day concussion period of absence’ were unconfirmed.

That could put Shaw in the frame for the weekend trip to Watford — the scene of his public rebuke by Jose Mourinho two years ago — although it is understood the left back is targeting next week for his comeback.
United travel to Bern for their opening Champions League group game with Young Boys on Wednesday.
Shaw has been at Carrington this week being assessed by United’s medical team, while summer signing Diogo Dalot has recovered from knee surgery.
Dalot played for the Under 23s last Friday and has trained for the past fortnight.
