He may not generate the same amount of excitement as Jadon Sancho or James Maddison – what with him being a left-back – but Ben Chilwell certainly produced a performance that has gotten Manchester United fans purring.
The England international has been linked with a big-money move to the Red Devils in the future, and on Thursday night against Montenegro, he showed exactly why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are interested in signing him.
As per Sofascore, he recorded a 9.2 match rating (the highest of any player on the pitch), no doubt thanks to his hat-trick of assists and incredible five key passes in total.
After seeing Chilwell’s display, United fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their reported transfer target.
Many supporters of the Manchester side insisted he showed exactly why he is far better than current Red Devils left-back, Luke Shaw, and urged the club to sign him as soon as possible.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
Chilwell is everything Luke Shaw will never be
