Manchester United handed a double injury blow ahead of their matches against Crystal Palace and Chelsea. The Red Devils conceded a late equaliser against Southampton which left them fifth in the table. During the game, Luke Shaw and Brendon Williams both forced off at Old Trafford.

Shaw was forced off in the 75th minute as he rolled his right ankle and was seen limping off the pitch and back to the dressing room. Williams, meanwhile, was involved in a head clash with Kyle Walker-Peters which left blood pouring from his head.

The youngster could take no further part and is unlikely to return fast this week. It means United may have no recognised left-back fit for the Premier League match with Crystal Palace on Thursday or the FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea on Sunday.
