Paul Scholes explains Luke Shaw's biggest problem at Manchester United

LUKE SHAW enjoyed a meal out with friends after earning praise from his Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Shaw has struggled for form and fitness at United, and nearly had his career ended after suffering a horrific double-leg break in 2015.

Many fans have believed that Shaw's time at Old Trafford is nearing an end, with Newcastle United and Tottenham strongly linked with a move for the England worldwide, who has only made 50 appearances for United in three years. Since returning to action, he has had his professionalism questioned by Mourinho, and many expect him to leave the club in not too-distant future, possibly as part of a swap deal with Tottenham's Danny Rose.

The positives for Mourinho kept flowing as several other of his players who have been found short in recent weeks turned in some eye-catching displays.

Crude Oil Mostly Steady In Asia After API Estimates, Risks Monitored
Brent crude futures ended down 2.6 percent, or $1.64 a barrel to $61.22, for its lowest close since November 2. Gasoline for January fell 3.4% at $1.661 a gallon, with the settlement the lowest since October 19.

"We see the quality that he's got, he's so strong and powerful". The former England trio effectively pinned the blame for Shaw's absence from the first-team on the player himself, and asked why he hasn't rose to the challenge set by his manager. While he should have scored earlier with a shot hitting the post following a ball squeezed through the Moscow back-line from Lukaku, his assurance on the ball was there for all to see.

The left-back has been available for the majority of the season but out of favour. They have a big issue but, in the end, everybody is ready to play. With a level of display similar to Tuesday night, the ex-Southampton player could well work his way back into the team as a regular and into the top form which he was enjoying before his aforementioned unfortunate serious leg injury.

He said: "He is the best left back at the club, he won't play on Sunday but he showed what he can do".

Having successfully negotiated his first test of the season, Luke Shaw now needs consistency but at least his destiny appears to be back in his own hands.
