Manchester United fans were left impressed by left-back Luke Shaw who made his first start for the club in quite some time vs CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.
The Englishman has had a tough time in his career at Old Trafford so far and has hardly had a fruitful relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.
Since the Portuguese arrived at the club, Shaw has had to do plenty to impress him with the boss often opting to pick other available players instead.
Against the Russian side though he certainly did enough to please United’s supporters who enjoyed every minutes of the player’s time on the pitch.

The real Luke Shaw has turned up tonight. And damn it's been a long time since we've seen him.

The player himself is certainly still regaining fitness after recovering from his injury but there’s nothing quite like competitive matches and it’s what the youngster needs to become fully fit.
It seems as though Jose is only happy to hand him minutes in games that aren’t of any particular importance which isn’t necessarily encouraging but Shaw will need to prove his worth.
With the Portuguese manager trying to chase Manchester City down for the title, the Englishman hasn’t perhaps had as much game time as he would’ve liked when the season began.
