Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed Luke Shaw will play against Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Shaw missed the 2-1 win over Watford on Saturday as a precaution after suffering a head injury while on international duty with England earlier this month.

However, the 23-year-old is set to return to United's starting line-up for the midweek trip to Switzerland at the expense of Ashley Young.

"Luke Shaw plays Wednesday," said Mourinho in his post-match interview at Vicarage Road.

"We can't do it with one left-back and Ashley Young is not just a left-back, he is also a right-back.

"They are both doing well, they are both different players and I think they both understand that one is a young player and the other is the experienced one and it is good for us to have these two options, plus Darmian.
