In the situation of Valencia, we have to protect his clinical situation, apart from that, we go with everything we have and we have to try and win.

Then, we returned Luke Shaw back to the squad.

I already said that Luke Shaw is playing and, apart from him, we have Diogo, Ashley Young and Darmian ready to play.
