Red-hot Shaw wins second successive award

Clearly a key component of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attacking plan with his storming raids down the left, he has also proved adept at supplying inviting set-pieces.

Luke’s defensive work is also extremely sound and, indeed, England coach Gareth Southgate commented at the weekend: “I’ve seen somebody who is just delighted to be here, enjoying his football and playing with confidence. First and foremost, Luke is a good defender and that’s important for us. We have to keep clean sheets. He certainly seems to have a smile on his face.”

Team-mate for club and country, Harry Maguire, added: “I’m really pleased for Luke. He’s had a great season. He’s creating a lot of chances for us at club level.”

That was also before our no.23 provided an assist for the Three Lions at the weekend, when his delicious cross was converted by Harry Kane as England beat Albania 2-0.
