Jose Mourinho reveals he isn't proud of Man Utd record

"Luke Shaw offensively was very good and made a great contribution for the team", Mourinho told BT Sport.

Following the Red Devils' 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League last night, United are now unbeaten in 40 games at Old Trafford. "But if you can get him playing there's a chance". He takes a touch to steady himself before drilling in a low shot that is blocked.

Shaw started his first game of the season and was dominant down the flank.

The 22-year-old would come close to opening the scoring after volleying Antonio Valencia's cross at goal but Igor Akinfeev made an important save from the initial effort and then from Lukaku on the rebound to keep the Russian's clean-sheet intact.


31 - Shaw concedes a corner as he does well to cut out a looping cross to the far post.

Is the Shaw to #Spurs move a possibility in January? Risky but well executed. Said it since the summer, get fatty Rose out of here and get Shaw in.

After scoring twice in 66 seconds to put themselves back on track, Manchester United overcame a half-time deficit to beat CSKA Moscow and qualify three points clear at the top of Group A on Tuesday evening.

54 - Roars of approval from the home fans as Shaw dinks the ball over his marker before winning a corner as his cross is deflected behind.


"It was no surprise that in 80 minutes he's feeling the consequences of that intensity; it's normal as it's the first match of the season for him", the manager proclaimed.

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.

"[He had an] excellent game. We weren't sure he would play but he tried and he played, that's part of football". He gives them a real option going forward and he has got to be in the manager's mind now.

Shaw's United future looks to be uncertain following the return of Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young's revival as a makeshift left-back and the transfer speculation which continues to link Spurs' Danny Rose with the Red Devils.
