Manchester United fans were more than happy with Luke Shaw‘s performance vs Burnley on Sunday afternoon.
The Englishman was in fine form once again away from home and has continued to be the most consistent player for the club so far.
Shaw’s displays have earned him rare praise from his manager and a recall to the England international side.
The defender was energetic throughout the match- taking on shots, bombing up and down the left flank as well as putting in some decent crosses.
Supporters are adamant that if Luke can keep up his performances then he will be the club’s first choice left-back for the next decade.
Luke Shaw taking shots, arguing with the ref, bombing down the left. Confidence returned.

Luke Shaw. Man of the match. He's staying there. His mentality is there and most importantly, he's contributing to the attack and ghosting past players. Not sure if it's tough love or him personally, but I'm happy he's showing his potential. Still early though. But hopeful.

As good as Shaw’s been, fans must still try to contain their excitement because it’s still early in the season.
The former Southampton man will have to consistently prove he’s the best option in the position for months before it’s properly his.
Ashley Young is one of Jose Mourinho’s most trusted players and there’s no doubt that at one point he will be given the opportunity to win a spot in the starting XI once again.
It’s down to Luke to try to not allow that opportunity to rise or to make sure he’s putting in better displays than the veteran.
