Manchester United's Shaw to miss one month through injury
The Manchester United Left-back Luke Shaw is set to miss one month after picking up an injury in a 3-1 win against Everton in the Premier during the weekend.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solsjkaer has laid the blame on the officials responsible for scheduling matches saying that they were not given time to rest after returning from Champions League match from Turkey and played Saturday's match against Everton So early.
“They set up the boys to fail,” Solskjaer said. “We have got Luke Shaw injured because we have played loads of games this season already, been to Turkey on Wednesday, got back at 4 am on Thursday and we are playing a lunchtime kick-off on Saturday.
“It is an absolute shambles, and I cannot praise the boys enough for the character they have shown. That is all I want to talk about. Those boys deserve better than being thrown out here to fail today. The authorities set us up to fail.”
Is it an opportunity for new signing Alex Telles to take over the left-back?
When the international break finishes, Solsjkaer only has his new signing Alex Telles to fill in the gap. United will be playing against West Brom at Old Trafford next weekend, and it will be Telles' first Premier appearances.
The Brazilian left-back played his first game for Manchester United in the Champions League win against Paris Saint-Germain in France.
