Paul Scholes: What makes Luke Shaw Man United's best left-back

Shaw went down with cramp late on and was tended to by Paul Pogba

Tonight the young English left back was handed a place in the starting XI, for the first time since April 30.

The 22-year-old started his first match in 219 days on Tuesday evening, helping the Red Devils to a 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow.

Mourinho was delighted with the result and the attitude of his players and says whoever United are paired with in Monday's last-16 draw will consider themselves unlucky.

US deportations decline in 2017 but arrests of illegal immigrants rise
ICE said "interior removals" - people deported after being arrested away from the border - jumped 25 percent to 81,603. During the same time period, the agency arrested more than 110,000 people, a 42 percent increase over the prior year.

It was 219 days since the England global had started a match for United and it's rumoured that Mourinho has doubted his attitude and appetite to make it at the top. Both of them came in the Carabao Cup fixtures against Burton Albion and Swansea City. But he's going to get more. But what does the future now hold for a player who's been cold-shouldered for so long?

Given Shaw has yet to start a Premier League match for United this season, there has been speculation about a transfer.

Should United persevere with Luke Shaw?

'Black Mirror' season 4 set to debut on Netflix on December 29th
Charlie Brooker had only signed a deal with Netflix for 12 new episodes and season 4 would complete that deal. The episode, directed by Colm McCarthy, stars Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright, and Babs Olusanmokun.

Shaw has struggled for form and fitness at United, and nearly had his career ended after suffering a horrific double-leg break in 2015. Recent reports by The Daily Mail suggest that we are ground confident of signing Tottenham left back, Danny Rose who is one of the finest players in his position in the division.

Shaw has endured a hard 18 months under Jose Mourinho and has been criticized for his below par performances. But it doesn't matter which team we get. He is a left back known for his all round play down that left flank. Advancing to the knockout stage, Mourinho was bullish in who his team might get next in the competition. With Daley Blind again proving against Moscow that he's far from the answer and Matteo Darmian also looking out of favour despite regular appearances last season, a space for Shaw can definitely be made in the coming weeks.

He said: "He is the best left back at the club, he won't play on Sunday but he showed what he can do".
