Manchester United look to add competition to first-team spots

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans will be pleased with what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to implement across the team after Luke Shaw‘s recent success.

The talented left-back has often been criticised but his form has picked up of late as he impressed with his versatility.

Solskjaer has tried out Shaw as a left centre-back of a back three and he has enjoyed great success in that position.

The England defender was also moved back to his left-back spot and still played well, impressing supporters with his performances.

This comes at a time when his competitor Brandon Williams has emerged and enjoyed a breakthrough season and Solskjaer doesn’t feel as though that’s a coincidence.

Shaw himself has spoken about his previous lack of competition for his spot and admitted he was pleased to have Williams to push him.

It’s certainly a tactic that has worked out for Solskjaer and it makes sense he would like to implement it across the board.

Manchester United’s squad is a bit of a thin one and adding good quality competition will step everyone’s standards up.

Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira were the latest to feel the effect of that competition as they were both left out of the recent clash with Watford entirely.
