Fifteen points from a possible eighteen comfortably allowed Manchester United to advance to the knockout stage of the Champions League, after a routine win over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford. With the busy Christmas period about to start and the Manchester derby on the horizon, let's hope Shaw keeps himself fit as he is surely going to get chances in the coming weeks.
He was at the time hailed as one of England's brightest prospects.
Kevin Kilbane says there is no need for Jose Mourinho to sign two new full-backs in the January transfer window.
At 22, Shaw is a long-term investment that could reap huge dividends for Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, even if some of the club's fans remain wary.
The resurgence of Ashley Young has also not helped his cause, with the 32-year-old excelling on the left-hand side of defence and he was rightly up for the Premier League Player of the Month, which was eventually won by Liverpool's Mohamed Salah. Both of them came in the Carabao Cup fixtures against Burton Albion and Swansea City.
Plot to kill British Prime Minister May foiled
Earlier this week a spokesperson for Ms May said British authorities had foiled nine terrorist plots in the last 12 months. The IRA had previously targeted prime minister Margaret Thatcher at the Conservative conference in Brighton in 1984.
"I don't think he'll play on Sunday having been out for so long".
Question marks have been raised over the player's lifestyle off the pitch with former managers Mauricio Pochettino, Roy Hodgson and Van Gaal all questioning the player's weight and lifestyle choices. In his pre-match press conference, Mourinho said the former Southampton defender "deserves" an opportunity.
"[Shaw] Was waiting for quite a long time, he was deserving for quite a long time, it is not easy to give an opportunity to a player who doesn't play for many months". "Especially with the ball going forward, really unsafe, creating a lot, great intensity in his game, no surprise in minute 80 he is feeling the consequences of that intensity".
It is now up to Shaw to decide if he wants to fight for his future at Manchester United, and on last night's showing it appears he does.
