Good going forward bit sloppy at the back late on could’ve been fatigue but great to see him get a goal hopefully he keeps his focus and nails down the starting spot so we don’t have to rush Young back.

Very pleased for him. First senior goal and I believe a first since he was about 16. He’s been threatening to break his duck for a while now so maybe this is the first sign that this will be a breakthrough season for him.

Other than that, a very solid performance. I think having a left footer makes a big difference in attack. I’m not sure the ball goes to Sanchez to win the penalty if Young is at LB.

He's got a free shot for 3 games to really make the position his own before the international break. I think the goal probably moved him from a 5 out of 10 to a 7 out of 10 performance as he was no better/worse than Darmian on the other side it sounded similar to the sort of performances he was putting in during pre season.

What might actually work for him is if Mourinho is keen on staying beyond the end of this season he needs to make something of Shaw because in 12 months time both left backs are out of contract so if he doesn't get Shaw to the standard he needs his left back to be he's in trouble as the club will be looking at having to spend with no return. If Shaw is true to his word about wanting to stay and earn a new deal hopefully he can impress the manager but you never know what's true and what's lip service.

Young as far as I'm aware is back in training so it'll be interesting to see at what point he returns will he start vs Brighton or will he keep Shaw in and have Young on the bench. Young doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who needs games to get back up to speed.

Same I see no point in rushing Young back into things but I'm not the manager and in his defence he'll need to give Young some playing time to get him up to speed as he won't have had any pre season time. Might put him in at right back vs Brighton?

The reason I'd keep playing Shaw is he's going to get a break shortly with the internationals unless Southgate decides to call him up if he has a couple of good games.

Yeah he should be given a run, if he is really going to have a long term future here then he needs to have faith placed in him.

I don’t think he has an amazing game but that goal will do his confidence the world of good. He strikes me as the sort of player who needs to have a run of games to really hit full speed and confidence. If he gets panned for Young against Brighton then I don’t think he’s got much chance of being a starter this season.

I think Shaw will be a nailed on starter against Brighton, he's done well enough and got his goal. I'm sure Jose even praised him after the game, shock horror! Young can then be played right instead of Darmian (Valencia is still injured). I personally think this would work well on a team level. You'd have Young and Rashford overlapping down one side, giving Lukaku plenty of service as Young delivery is pretty damn good, light years better than Valencia's.

But Jose is Jose and will keep banging away with his own well used and not so successful tactics at Utd. I just hope Carrick and the other guy (can't even remember his name) tries to get Jose to try different stuff over this coming season.

Yeah Jose said ‘it was a complete performance even before the goal. The goal was just the icing on the cake’

He said stuff like that a few times last season then he'd drop Shaw the next game.

I hope he's going to try a different motivational tactic with him this season he needs to keep Shaw focused on his football as we do need him and Shaw needs to do that because he's out of contract in 12 months and if he wants to continue earning £100k a week at Utd or any other club he's going to need to sort himself out.

I think Utd would renew him tomorrow to protect his transfer value but I don't see them wanted to offer him much of a pay rise or anything to long term probably 2 more years on close to current pay is what they'd want to do.

Reports are he's on £100k a week so you can't imagine Utd being prepared to offer him much of a raise given he's only made 38 PL starts in 4 seasons as I believe the graphic highlighted on Friday along with the rumours of him not being fully committed all the time and the issues he's had with the manager.

I guess for Shaw it's a case of if he has a bad season someone will give him another chance and because he's a free transfer he can command a high wage. If he has a good season the offer from Utd might go up as I would imagine the starting players are all earning closer to the £150k a week bracket plus he knows he's got them over a barrell because he can leave for nothing in 12 months.

He says he want to stay and earn a new deal but with footballers what they said in public and what they say in private are often 2 different things.
