Manchester United star Luke Shaw has the statistics to prove just how well he played vs Crystal Palace on Wednesday.
The Englishman was praised for his performance vs Liverpool as he managed to keep Mohamed Salah eerily quiet.
At Selhurst Park however, Shaw showed off the other part of his game, grabbing an assist in a 3-1 win.
The youngster has begun to hit the highs he previously set and there’s hope he can step up even further.
Luke himself admitted he believes he’s got yet another level left in him and fans will be excited to see that.

Winning all his tackles and aerials duels is a superb statistic in and of itself but his perfect take-ons is what highlighted his game.
It was through one of these take-ons that he fantastically set up Romelu Lukaku for the match opener.
Had Crystal Palace scored first then United may have been looking at a different result but thanks to Shaw that didn’t happen.
The left-back will be keen to continue improving to dismiss any rumours of the club signing a full-back in the summer.
Whoever is the manager next season may be tempted to reshuffle his back-line but after Luke’s performance, he may just be safe.
