Mason Mount and Luke Shaw are unlikely to join up with England for Monday’s World Cup qualifier against San Marino.

Gareth Southgate confirmed the pair were set to stay behind, with Shaw recovering from concussion and Mount having undergone dental surgery this week.

Both players failed to join up with the Three Lions squad at the start of the week as they stayed behind at their clubs for treatment.

Shaw suffered a concussion in Manchester United’s defeat to Manchester City last weekend and had to follow protocols before being released for international duty.

He suffered a setback earlier in the week, further delaying his release and return to action.

Mount, meanwhile, had wisdom teeth removed after suffering flu-like symptoms.

Southgate said: “Luke and Mason are very unlikely to joins us. It looks like we will run out of time with those two. But I will make changes definitely (against San Marino).

After beating Albania 5-0 at Wembley on Friday, England need just a point away at San Marino on Monday in order to guarantee qualification for next winter's World Cup.
