Only one Manchester United player made this week’s Sofascore Team of the Week.
Luke Shaw seemingly impressed enough during Manchester United’s 0-0 draw with Southampton on Sunday, as he was included in this matchweek’s best XI.
Unfortunately, United were unable to take all three points on Sunday against the relegation candidates, who have four players in the team themselves.

Shaw is enjoying a fine season in red and has been one of the Reds’ most valuable players across the campaign so far.
Erik ten Hag’s side now face two fixtures in the Europa League and FA Cup before an international break at the end of March. They will then return to Premier League action on April 2.
