Despite Louis van Gaal infamously labelling Luke Shaw unfit just a couple of days ago, Manchester United have landed themselves a real gem of a player if you look at the statistics. Shaw is just 19-years of age, and already has over 60 first-team appearances to his name.
He was also the standout left-back in the premier League last season, and although many people seem to have a problem with the £27million fee Manchester United paid for Shaw, he could well pay that back over the next decade.
As you can see, Luke Shaw is the leading left-back in terms of crosses, dribbles, goal attempts and tackle success. This shows that although he is an excellent attacking full-back, he also doesn’t mind defending too.
