The full-back has been plagued by ailments of late, suffering a concussion in the 2-0 loss to Manchester City that forced him to miss the international break.
He was pulled off against Watford after being hit in the face after the break for the last World Cup qualifiers. Previously, Carrick stated: "We're just being cautious with Luke [Shaw] and assessing him on a daily basis. I'm hoping he won't be far away."
Paul Pogba is one of United's long-term absentees after sustaining a thigh injury while on international duty last month. He is expected to remain out until the new year.
In light of the win over Crystal Palace, he is presently undergoing rehabilitation and issued an update on his progress.
After sustaining muscle injuries, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard are doubts for the encounter. Neither player was in United's matchday squad for Sunday's victory. After getting trodden on by Callum Hudson-Odoi during their 2-2 tie, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was unable to play against Arsenal in midweek. Prior to the win over Arsenal, Carrick said: "Hudson-Odoi stood on his hand, so Aaron [Wan-Bissaka] is in a lot of agony. He didn't make it for today since it's a toss-up."
