Incredibly Detailed thread explores luke Shaw’s incredible run of form

Luke Shaw is in the form of his life, becoming an integral part of United’s attacking force while putting in consistently strong defensive performances.

Things could have gone very differently for the defender this season with the arrival of Alex Telles. However the competition has pushed Shaw to a new level, becoming arguably the most in-form left back in the Premier League.

Over on Twitter, UtdArena has broken down the 25-year-old’s recent performances, highlighting just how good he’s actually been over the last few months.

The thread not only explores Shaw’s more advanced positioning, no doubt aided by an all-round more threatening United side, but shows how productive he’s been once getting into those positions.

His understanding with Marcus Rashford down the left has been a key component in United attacks, and the quality of his final ball has made him a focal point when picking opposing teams apart.

The incredibly detailed thread also explains how Shaw has become a reliable outlet in terms of accurate progressive passing.

That understanding with Rashford is also put under the microscope. His variation when it comes to underlapping and overlapping has been vital to the improvement in his game.

His defensive awareness has kicked on significantly too, allowing Rashford a “security blanket” when being pressed, allowing his side to keep possession and reset

His prolonged period of form has been a welcome sight given his unfortunate history of injuries. So much so that a call-up back to the England squad ahead of the Euros seems inevitable.
