Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Luke Shaw will finally make his return to first-team action in Saturday's Premier League meeting with Bournemouth.

The left-back has found it difficult to earn a regular berth in the Portuguese manager's plans following a groin injury sustained in the autumn and has not featured in a Premier League match since turning out in a scoreless draw against Burnley on October 29. In total, he has featured only seven times in the league for the Red Devils since Mourinho took charge.

In recent weeks, the 21-year-old defender has been publicly supported by the likes of United legends Denis Irwin and Gary Neville, though Mourinho has chosen to overlook the Englishman since he regained fitness in January, with Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind preferred.

Shaw was selected in the Red Devils' FA Cup encounter against Wigan Athletic in January, which they won 4-0, though he lost his place in the subsequent round when they played in Blackburn.

United play the Cherries in the Premier League in Saturday's early kick off at Old Trafford, with the hosts aiming to move at least temporarily into fourth before Arsenal face Liverpool later in the weekend.
