Manchester United fans were thrilled with Luke Shaw‘s performance against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon.
The Englishman had been in and out of the starting line-up after Jose Mourinho had been pushing him to improve and on the rare chances where he was given game time, the Portuguese boss would criticise Shaw.
He came on against Everton earlier in the week to win a penalty in the closing minutes of the game and impressed against Sunderland once again as he left the pitch with his first assist in the Premier League since August 2015.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance against David Moyes’ side.
Strong display to build off of from Shaw

Good game from Luke Shaw! Was good defensively and going forward created a few chances and got an assist as a result! Jose impressed yet? ????

Been a very very good 60 minutes for Shaw. Second week running where he's had a positive performance. #MUFC

Shaw has been outstanding since his return and it’s something we’ve seen multiple times this season with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial performing better after being left out of the team.
While it was a shame to see his talent being wasted, Mourinho clearly understands his players better and will be sure to know when a player has more to offer.
Hopes are he can continue to put his head down and work hard as there’s no doubt he has the potential to go on and become a solid player at Old Trafford.
