‘Best left back in the league this season’ – Loads of United fans delighted with Shaw after 9-0 win over Southampton

Luke Shaw was excellent again for Manchester United last night as they beat Southampton 9-0 at Old Trafford.

It was a proper cricket scoreline with Manchester United battering the Saints all over the pitch, but it comes during a time a big win was needed after drawing with Arsenal and losing against Sheffield United.

A section of United fans on Twitter have heaped praise on the performance of Luke Shaw during the game last night.

United were handed a man advantage after just two minutes when Saints midfielder Alex Jankewitz was sent off for a horror tackle on Scott McTominay.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side went on to make the most of the opportunity as they put nine goals past Southampton to equal our Premier League record, previously achieved against Ipswich Town in 1995.

Shaw wasn’t the only player to stand out against the Saints but he deserved the recognition after taking his superb form from January into February.

Here’s a few reactions from Twitter:

The English left-back was nominated for Manchester United player of the month in January. He came second in the voting as Paul Pogba won the award.

I think he’s definitely in with a shout of being called the best left back in the Premier League this season.
