Loads of Man Utd fans call for Solskjaer to select 18-year-old star after Shaw injury

Luke Shaw has been ruled out for at least a month after pulling up in United’s defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The 24-year-old’s injury leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer light in options in the left-back position. Diogo Dalot is recovering from an injury setback leaving just just Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo as recognised first-team options.

Young is expected to start against Southampton on Saturday after coming off the bench to replace Shaw, but some Reds think Solskjaer should consider an academy star for the left-back role.

Brandon Williams has started every game for the u23 side this season, in an unbeaten start for Neil Wood’s side.

The youngster has four assists in the opening four games, and is yet to concede a goal.

Williams is clearly an exciting player for the future but it seems unlikely he will be thrust into first-team action by Solskjaer against Southampton.

Perhaps the 18-year-old can make the substitutes bench for the first-team as full-back cover with the Reds currently short in the area.

Loads of United fans have backed Williams to make the first-team step up:
