United have announced that left-back Shaw has suffered a hamstring injury. 

Shaw, who joined the Red Devils from Southampton in June for £27million, is expected to miss United's first three Barclays Premier League games, including their opener against Swansea on Saturday.

A statement on United's website read: "Luke Shaw has suffered a hamstring injury and will miss the opening game of the season against Swansea City on Saturday.

"The England international, a summer signing from Southampton, is likely to be sidelined for around four weeks.

"Shaw sat out the friendly victory against Valencia at Old Trafford due to the problem and faces a wait before making his competitive debut for the club."

Shaw, who was a member of England's World Cup squad in Brazil, has been struggling with his fitness since joining up with his new team during their pre-season trip to the United States.

The teenager will also miss the games against Sunderland, Burnley and QPR and may not be avalailable until the middle of September.

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
