Just before the halftime whistle blew in the Luton Town vs. Manchester United game, Luke Shaw had to be substituted due to an injury. Victor Lindelof replaced Luke Shaw just before halftime. This is a common occurrence for Luke Shaw at Manchester United, and this season is no different. The game against Luton was only his 12th game of this Premier League season with Man United. Since joining Man United in 2014, Shaw has missed 200 games through injury.

The left-back is reportedly set for another 2-3 months on the sidelines. Shaw is on high salaries among other Man United players. He has the 10th highest salary out of the entire Man United squad, according to Shaw makes a yearly salary of 7.8 million pounds with a weekly wage of 150 thousand pounds. With likely three months out of action, Shaw could miss 12 weeks from playing. That equates to 1.8 million pounds wasted since Shaw will not contribute to the pitch.
