Luke Shaw

#23 LUKE SHAW

I think the best way to summarise Shaw's career to date is through the following stats on league appearances:

2013—14: 35
2014—15: 16
2015—16: 5
2016—17: 11
2017—18: 11
2018—19:  29

In short, last season was the most we have seen from Shaw since his season at Southampton that prompted us to sign him in the first place. Until last season, it has always been a case of knowing he was a quality player but his form has always been broken up by injuries. Lady luck was on his side though and in the end, he picked up 3 Player of the Month awards for the club, being voted Players' Player of the Season as well as winning the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award (finally breaking De Gea's streak).

Let's cross our fingers that he can turn out another 30+ games this season for us...

He probably does realise this would mean competition for his spot -  I applaud him even more for that.

Best thing he's done as a United player in years 😂

He's another player we really need to see a big season from.  I understand that injuries have affected him during his time here, but I do think he's lucky that we have so many other areas we need to address or there would be bigger question marks about his future here. 

He hasn't really developed much during his time here, and he has a lot of improving to do.  Too often, he falls asleep and/or is too lazy defensively and although he's good driving forward with the ball, his final ball is ineffective.  He's far too inconsistent too - he has good spells of form here and there, but can't keep it going.

I don't think it helps that we don't have competition for him to keep him on his toes either.

Luke Shaw has been crowned the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year for 2018/19, adding to his Players’ Player of the Year award success.

The defender has won the coveted sculpture of Sir Matt for the first time in his United career at the end of his fifth campaign as a Red. Thousands of fans voted in the official app and Shaw came out on top. Victor Lindelof was second in the voting and Paul Pogba came third.

Luke follows in the footsteps of David De Gea, who has also won both awards in three of the last four seasons – including last season. Speaking about his double success, Shaw said on stage: “It’s obviously nice for me, but I’d rather win no [individual] trophies and have a better season as a team. We need to move on and focus now on next season and what’s to come.

“Ole has done an amazing job and of course we’ve had ups and downs but he’s obviously looking forward to getting us back in pre-season and getting his proper work done for next season. We’re all looking forward to starting fresh next season with him as the manager.”

WHY SHAW WON IT

Although it has been a difficult season overall for the Reds, Luke has been a standout performer and is undoubtedly a worthy winner of the award chosen by the fans.

He has won our Player of the Month award on three occasions – in August, September and March – in a campaign in which he’s made 40 appearances in all competitions ahead of this weekend's closing fixture against Cardiff City. That’s the highest tally he’s achieved in a single season in a United shirt to date, despite experiencing injury worries and being suspended for a period.

The 23-year-old was also voted our Man of the Match by fans in our goalless draw against Liverpool in February and 2-1 win over Watford in March.

Of course, Luke experienced a memorable start to 2018/19, scoring his first career goal in our opening game of the campaign – which proved to be the winner against Leicester City.

He has also set up four other goals for his team-mates: Marcus Rashford’s fine finishes against West Ham and Watford, Romelu Lukaku’s opening effort at Crystal Palace and Juan Mata’s strike against Chelsea.

Back in October, Luke signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until June 2023, with the option to extend for a further year.
