Luke Shaw is looking forward to making his competitive debut for Manchester United against West Ham this weekend.
The 19-year-old has been missing so far this season with a hamstring injury but is now match fit and it comes at a perfect time for United.
Marcos Rojo has filled in at left-back in Shaw’s absence but he’ll play at centre back on Saturday amid an injury crisis, meaning Shaw can come straight in and play his favoured position.
United fans can’t wait to see Shaw in action after his move from Southampton this summer as after a quiet pre-season, they are yet to see him at his flowing best.
Last year at Southampton, Shaw was one of the best left-backs in the Premier League and that’s precisely what earned him a move to Old Trafford, so fans are hoping he is able to hit the ground running now that his injury problems are behind him.
It’s been a long time since United have had a left-back capable of attacking with real verve and tenacity without neglecting their defensive duties, which is exactly the sort of style Shaw plays.
United is the best place for a young talent to flourish and everyone is hoping Shaw can get off to a strong start against West Ham this weekend.
