"The Spurs left-back has been a permanent fixture on Jose Mourinho's defensive radar and Manchester United are the overwhelming favourites at 4/6 to strike up a deal for the England global". At half-time we were playing well and I was not unhappy.
"He managed to stay on for 90 minutes". While his performance was full of running and explosive sprints, he carried this energy through much of an impressive second half.
Scholes believes that it is important Mourinho selects Shaw more regularly, comparing him to former teammate Wayne Rooney. 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. But it doesn't matter which team we get. The England man has recently returned to fitness after a long-term knee problem, but he has struggled to regain his place in Mauricio Pochettino's first team. 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. However Spurs may be wise to reconsider after the left-back's latest performance. He needed to be playing all the time, Saturday, Tuesday, whatever it may be. While this won't be enough to dislodge Ashley Young from the starting eleven against Manchester City this weekend, it's certainly made people sit up and notice.
Prior to the first start against CSKA Moscow, Shaw made two substitute appearances.
"Shaw put in a very positive performance, especially in possession", he told a news conference.
That has sparked a scramble for the 29-year-old's signature with Mourinho and United at the head of the queue.
He said: "He is the best left back at the club, he won't play on Sunday but he showed what he can do".
At that point it appeared he would be in Zinedine Zidane's plans for the season ahead.
