Man United fans want Shaw to start at left-back instead of Young against Liverpool

Manchester United play host to Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday in another big Premier League clash, and Red Devils fans want Luke Shaw to start ahead of Ashley Young at left-back against in-form Reds attacker Mo Salah, who won the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month for February.

Young has started the club’s last three matches in that position – including the 3-2 win against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night – and he has often been a regular there throughout the campaign with Shaw, who came under scrutiny for his physical state when he came on against the Eagles, struggling for starts under Jose Mourinho this term.

The 32-year-old would come up against the speedy and dangerous Salah if he did start on Saturday, with the Egypt international the joint-top goalscorer in the top flight this season with 24 league goals.

Man United fans have been quick to have their say on who should start at left-back to try and stop the imperious 25-year-old at Old Trafford, and while one said “need to start Shaw on Saturday”, another said “hope Jose sticks with Shaw for Liverpool”.
