Shaw seems to have rejuvenated in Jose Mourinho’s side this season, starting 7 of United’s opening 8 Premier League fixtures.
Shaw’s impressive performances for United this season led to Gareth Southgate recalling the left-back into the England setup after a long hiatus due to his injury problems and lack of playing time at United in recent seasons.
Shaw’s turnaround for the Red Devils is truly remarkable and the future looks bright for the Southampton academy graduate.
