After Manchester United strolled past Watford 3-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday, one unlikely man in particular has been earning plenty of plaudits alongside new star Bruno Fernandes – with defender Luke Shaw impressing supporters thanks to his ‘quality‘ outing.
Shaw, who completed 90% of his passes whilst winning an equal number of ground duels, dominated the left flank with overlapping runs and accumulated the highest SofaScore rating (7.7) out of United’s entire back line. The Englishman, who has become a slightly divisive figure since signing from Southampton way back in 2014, attracted lofty praise for his showing even despite new star signing Bruno Fernandes grabbing all the headlines with an influential display.
The 24-year-old has had to contend with a plethora of injury issues at Old Trafford (Transfermarkt), but after 12 starts so far this campaign (WhoScored), he could be stringing together some momentum in time for Euro 2020 contention.
As a result, many United fans have flocked to praise the defender for his ‘quality‘ display against Watford – find all of their best comments down below.
Bruno but another good showing from @LukeShaw23 again. Saved us a couple times, so calm on the ball. Overlapped a few times which he needs to do a lot more often. What a weekend.
