Manchester United star Luke Shaw was the man of the match vs West Ham and for good reason, leaving fans stunned with the shift he had just put in.
The talented defender has truly made this season his own, even arguably being the club’s best performer, or at the very least challenging Bruno Fernandes for that title.
Shaw has always had the potential to be a top player for United and although he’s put some good performances in previously, this campaign is different.
This time around the former Southampton man has added consistency to his performances which in turn has elevated his game.
Shaw has also been blessed with a relatively injury-free season, which is something he hasn’t necessarily had in the past, allowing him to kick on and seal the left-back spot for himself.
Luke Shaw is phenomenal.

If Luke Shaw isn’t first choice LB for England at the Euros this summer, then someone drug test Gareth Southgate.

Luke Shaw quite simply the best full back in the league now.

Luke Shaw has been insane this season, I will put my hands up and call myself out for criticising him before but I want to applaud him for working hard and reaching this level, it's time to be consistent now. Absolutely top class performances.

Shaw couldn’t have hoped for a better season than the one he’s experienced so far and the icing on the cake would be him starring for England in the Euros this summer.
Manchester United fans themselves would prefer to wrap the English full-back in cotton wool instead and protect him from any of the negativity that is sometimes associated with the England senior team.
However, Shaw certainly deserves to feature for his country but until the summer comes around, supporters will hope he can keep up his form for his club.
