Paul Scholes: What makes Luke Shaw Man United's best left-back

Luke Shaw during training

Luke Shaw made the most of a rare opportunity to start for Manchester United, with Jose Mourinho describing his performance as "very, very good".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho withdraw Marcos Rojo from last night's Champions League win over CSKA Moscow due to fatigue.

Despite the positives of Tuesday night's performance, it's still a long way back into the first team, Mourinho is now short of options in this position. "He created a lot of danger and created a lot of unsafe situations".

As of such, it is a tremendous time for the players themselves, who have potentially career-altering decisions to make in a short period of time.

But it sounds like Mourinho is willing to give Shaw another chance as he has rejected suggestions that his appearance in their final Champions League group game was a once-off which came about due to the possibility that the United manager had one eye on keeping his best players fresh for Sunday's Manchester derby.

"He is a flying machine, he got caught a bit for the goal but he is so powerful".

"If I could choose goalscorers, I would always choose the strikers". Both Marcus Rashford or Anthony Martial prefer to play more centrally.

"I hope there is a future for him. Not for me, but for him".

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season in Mourinho's first campaign in charge. We played well and got the result.

Honestly, it was a pleasure to see Shaw back in the squad and produce a performance of real quality. Good performance and good attitude.

"I am not the luckiest guy with draws, so it's better for me to shut up and forget it". Until then I have to concentrate on the English competitions.

Lukaku scored a goal borne of his strongest qualities following a fine early ball into the box from Paul Pogba.

Add to that a controversial interview Rose did over the summer about Tottenham's transfer strategy and he has found it hard to get back into the team.
