Manchester United fans couldn’t hide their delight with Luke Shaw following his performance vs Tottenham Hotspurs.
Jose Mourinho’s men suffered a 3-0 loss at home but the Englishman was the only player to come out of the match with his reputation intact.
Shaw was solid in defence and impressive going forward as he continues to build up steam with his displays.
United fans were hoping to see this version of the left-back this season after he’s disappointed in previous campaigns.
There’s no stopping Luke at the moment and the hope is he can continue to remain injury free in order make that position his own.
Luke Shaw has been United's best player. By some margin too. One of very few who actually has a purpose to try something.

Wouldn’t have predicted this last month when he was skinned by a San Jose reserve and it’s v early, but Luke Shaw MU’s best player in 18-19.

Shaw doesn't deserve to be on the losing side tonight, he was fantastic.
10/10 performance 🔥

Ashley Young was unlikely to just give up his position without a fight but he’s hardly had a chance to do anything about it.
The veteran joined the team late after his exploits with England in the World Cup and has only featured once with that appearance coming as a right-back.
Shaw’s good form has seen Mourinho maintain faith in him so fans may not see Young anytime soon.
The former winger will have to wait for his own chance to upstage the youngster but for now he’ll have to be patient on the sidelines.
