Luke Shaw is the best left-back in the Premier League
Manchester United’s Luke Shaw is the best left-back in the Premier League, according to club legend Denis Irwin.
Former Saints ace Shaw put in a dazzling 45 minutes against his old side with two assists in the 9-0 rout.
And Irwin told the club’s website: “Alex Telles coming in has probably pushed him and he’s been really top class in the last couple of months.
“His overlapping is there to see, his defending is there to see. It’s good that he’s got competition.
“He had Brandon Williams last year, and raised his game, and he’s got Alex Telles this year and that has helped him to raise his game. Certainly, at the moment, as things stand, he is the best left-back in the league.
“There’s Ben Chilwell down at Chelsea. Obviously, they’re going through a tough time but he’s a really decent player.
“here are one or two others – Ryan Bertrand at Southampton has been doing well and I’m missing one or two more, maybe Andy Robertson.”

CHELSEA condemned Jose Mourinho to back-to-back home league defeats for the first time in his managerial career.
Jorginho converted a first-half penalty after Eric Dier tripped Timo Werner as they battled for the loose ball.
And that proved the only goal of the game as a passive Tottenham side offered virtually nothing in attack.

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Celtic prospect Vincent Angelini, according to reports.
The 17-year-old stopper is out of contract at the end of the season and talks over a new deal have stalled.
Angelini, who has an Italian father, is not short of suitors keen to land him for nothing.
According to Tutto Mercato Web, United are joined by Premier League rivals Everton and Southampton who are in the market for his signature.
But their biggest threat comes from abroad with clubs in Italy also locked in a transfer tug-of-war.
Lazio, Atalanta and AC Milan are ready to make their move and Angelini is reportedly keen on testing his abilities in Italy.
