Manchester United fans were thrilled with Luke Shaw‘s return to action against Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
The Englishman finally returned to the side as Jose Mourinho has been attempting to get the best out of him, leaving him on the sidelines until he improves aspects of his game.
Mourinho has confirmed he has no intentions of selling Shaw in the summer transfer window, but was hoping to see him improve, as we saw with a brilliant return against Bournemouth.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.
So comfortable playing with Shaw.

Great to see Luke Shaw ploughing into tackles like that…confidence has been a bigger issue than his fitness. Playing well today #MUFC

When Shaw and Martial play together down the left side.. the world feels right.

Supporters are completely aware of Shaw’s talents, as he’s undoubtedly United’s best left-back and it was a shame to see his talents being wasted on the sidelines.
He was solid throughout the entire game and Mourinho will be pleased with his performance, because as we’ve seen from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial earlier in the campaign, when the Portuguese boss leaves a player out of the action, they return with a clear point to prove.
