Luke Shaw gives Manchester United an unlikely new puzzle in defence
As Manchester United’s season builds up speed, the development of Luke Shaw at focus back has been one more certain story in the club’s resurgence.
Shaw can’t have conceived having such an effect in the wake of chipping in last week to play close by Raphael Varane, however the impossible couple have been remarkable. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof both watched from the substitutes’ seat as the pair created another phenomenal, straightforward protective execution to get a subsequent clean sheet in the 1-0 win at Wolves on Saturday.
Left-back Shaw has opened consistently into the core of United’s guard and manager Erik Ten Hag seems to have coincidentally found an answer which suits his framework. It helps when you can play close by a defender as experienced as Varane, or have one of the world’s best defensive midfielders in Casemiro working in the front.

There will likewise be harder tests ahead after matches against Nottingham Woodland and Wolves, two teams presently in the last three. In any case, Shaw’s exhibitions over those matches have still shocked many, maybe even the player himself, and it very well may be a position which he embraces later in his profession.
However Diego Costa has lost a portion of the mischief which has characterized his vocation, the reality he was taken off at half-time by Wolves underlined how agreeable Shaw and Varane were.
United moved into the Champions League puts interestingly on Saturday, with Marcus Rashford delivering the ideal reaction to being dropped. Rashford was rebuffed for turning up late to a team meeting, guaranteeing he slept in, however repaid Ten Hag with the winning goal a short ways from time.
While Ten Hag is as yet focusing on the marking of another forward in the January window, United may now think about another goalkeeper. Newcastle have reviewed No 2 Martin Dubravka from his season-long advance after the Slovakian showed up in the Carabao Cup.
Tom Heaton and Nathan Cleric will keep on giving back-up to David de Gea, yet United will evaluate whether to sign another goalkeeper.
Wolves, still in the transfer zone, are likewise getting ready for a bustling month of signings, with lead trainer Julen Lopetegui quick to get no less than four volunteers. Matheus Cunha, the Brazil international, is set to make his introduction at Aston Manor on Wednesday after marking borrowed.
