Man United news: Luke Shaw in line to be axed - 'he's in danger', says pundit

Paul Robinson has tipped Man City defender Kyle Walker to retain his place for England’s last 16 game against Senegal.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England number one suspects Gareth Southgate will instead drop Luke Shaw to make room for Kieran Trippier.

Walker replaced Trippier for England’s final group game against Wales.

The Man City right-back was absent from the Three Lions’ first two group games while he recovered from injury.

Gareth Southgate has until Sunday to decide who to play at full-back against Senegal.

When asked by Football Insider if Trippier was likely to return, Robinson said: “I do not think Gareth will change to a five.

“The four has worked well so far so I do not see why he would change. The move to a five would be to protect Harry Maguire but he has been excellent in this tournament so far. You have to give him a lot of credit. If he continues like that the two centre-halves will stay the same.

“If Walker is fit for the Senegal game I think he will start.

“It will be on a game by game basis though. The tournament is long. Some players might fatigue or get injured.

“It will be interesting. The player I think that could be in danger is Luke Shaw. We have see Trippier used at left-back before. Southgate likes Trippier there.”
