Scholes draws comparisons between Shaw and Rooney

I'm not sure, the problem he has got is that Ashley Young has been brilliant at left wing back. With the busy Christmas period about to start and the Manchester derby on the horizon, let's hope Shaw keeps himself fit as he is surely going to get chances in the coming weeks.

'He was waiting for quite a long time, he has been deserving for quite a long time.

Scholes believes that it is important Mourinho selects Shaw more regularly, comparing him to former teammate Wayne Rooney.

UNITED boss Jose Mourinho was clear in his wish for four new players in the summer and, in the end, three arrived.

United are hardly blessed in the full-back department at the moment, particularly when you look at the history of the club with the likes of Denis Irwin, Gary Neville and Patrice Evra all earning legendary status in the north-west.

Before the game kicked-off, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard questioned Shaw's professionalism and asked why a player of such obvious talent has not been used more often by Mourinho.

Burmese pythons, one of the largest snake species on earth, are breeding in the park and spreading throughout south Florida. But since the 1980s, released snakes and their offspring have preyed on mammals, birds and reptiles native to Florida.

Having proven he can play at the highest level on the biggest stage, Shaw did as much as could realistically be asked of him on Tuesday evening. Both of them came in the Carabao Cup fixtures against Burton Albion and Swansea City.

Goretzka seems to have been unaffected by speculation this season, scoring four times in just eight Bundesliga starts - just one goal fewer than he managed in the entirety of last season.

Shaw moved to United from Southampton in 2015 after impressing under then Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino.

"Especially with the ball going forward, really unsafe, creating a lot, great intensity in his game, no surprise in minute 80 he is feeling the consequences of that intensity, is normal, first match of the season for him".

"Shaw had waited for a long time, it is not easy to give an opportunity to a player in matches when we need results".
