Manchester United fans were thrilled with Luke Shaw‘s performance against Anderlecht in the second leg tie at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
The Englishman has been in and out of the starting line-up this season but has recently returned to the first-team following continuous criticism from Jose Mourinho.
He’s performed well since his return to the side and once again showcased against Anderlecht why he deserves to cement his place in the side as the team’s first choice left-back.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his impressive performance.
Again shows how good public criticism can be. Luke Shaw's played brilliantly since mourinho slated him in the press

Shaw has an undeniable amount of talent and it’s great that he’s finally been able to fight for his place in the side as it was disappointing to see his talent being wasted on the sidelines.
He’s had trouble with consistency this campaign, as supporters even saw in the first-half against Anderlecht and he’ll need to keep his head down and prove to Mourinho that he’s committed at Old Trafford.
His performance against Anderlecht is a step in the right direction for Shaw, but there’s no doubt he’s capable of better and Mourinho only want to get the best out of him.
