Scholes draws comparisons between Shaw and Rooney

Luke Shaw

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. The win extend Manchester United's unbeaten home record in all competitions to 40 games.

The games come thick and fast in December and the Carabao Cup meeting with Bristol City may be Shaw's next opportunity to show his boss a new full-back need not be on his shopping list as the transfer window opens next month and he continues to be linked with Tottenham's Danny Rose. But what does the future now hold for a player who's been cold-shouldered for so long?

Shaw has endured a hard 18 months under Jose Mourinho and has been criticized for his below par performances.

"Ashley Young in fairness to him has got Mourinho's full trust and he is playing really well".

The positives for Mourinho kept flowing as several other of his players who have been found short in recent weeks turned in some eye-catching displays.

"We see the quality that he's got, he's so strong and powerful".

Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have both played starring roles while Victor Lindelof has gradually been eased into first-team action. He also returned to the England set-up during the last worldwide break in recognition of his strong displays.

Furthermore, there have been tensions between the Argentine coach and Rose, who was left out of the Spurs squad for the North London derby. He needed to be playing all the time, Saturday, Tuesday, whatever it may be.
