Manchester United has officially confirmed why Luke Shaw has been dropped from the starting XI despite being picked by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to face Brighton at Old Trafford.

Shaw started every league match in the early 2015–16 season until 15 September 2015, when, during the opening match of the Champions League group stage against PSV, Shaw was caught by Héctor Moreno with a sliding tackle and suffered a double leg fracture. Shaw was given oxygen and treated by nine medical staff during the nine-minute stoppage in Eindhoven before he was taken off on a stretcher and taken to hospital. Shaw was expected to be out of action for at least six months. He returned to training on 4 April 2016.

On 7 August 2016, Shaw made his first competitive appearance since suffering his double leg fracture in September 2015, as Manchester United won 2–1 against Leicester City to lift the 2016 FA Community Shield.
