Manchester United defender Luke Shaw to miss EFL Cup clash at Northampton

Luke Shaw is set to miss Manchester United's trip to Northampton and Anthony Martial is a doubt for the EFL Cup third-round tie.

Left-back Shaw sustained a slight groin tear in Sunday's defeat to Watford, which forward Martial left during the first half following a nasty-looking clash of heads.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is also a doubt for a match Phil Jones (knee) misses out on, while Jose Mourinho will be tempted to make more changes on Wednesday, as he did in the Europa League at Feyenoord last week.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Johnstone, Valencia, Darmian, Bailly, Blind, Fosu-Mensah, Rojo, Smalling, Tuanzebe, Carrick, Fellaini, Herrera, Mata, Depay, Pogba, Schneiderlin, Young, Mkhitaryan, Lingard, Rooney, Ibrahimovic, Martial, Rashford.
