Manchester United defender, Luke Shaw has been singled out for praises from his manager, Jose Mourinho following Manchester United 2-1 win against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Group A on Tuesday.
The England worldwide was handed a first start when the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager started him on the left wing-back position.
The win extend Manchester United's unbeaten home record in all competitions to 40 games.
Within this team, however, was a player who had previously only appeared as a substitute in the Carabao Cup this season despite being available for selection for the majority of United's fixtures.
With only a minuscule chance of a United failure going into the match, José Mourinho still fielded a strong lineup to face the Russian side.
There has been speculation that United could look to sell Shaw in the January transfer window, yet Mourinho was pleased with the 22-year-old's display against Moscow, as they went through to the knockout stages of the Champions League as group winners. "I think he would".
Should United persevere with Luke Shaw?
It has to be said that a horror leg break in 2015 was the catalyst for his downturn in form, as he's never quite got back to the level he was before that injury against PSV Eindhoven.
Mourinho also notably had kind words for Shaw. Since returning to action, he has had his professionalism questioned by Mourinho, and many expect him to leave the club in not too-distant future, possibly as part of a swap deal with Tottenham's Danny Rose. But it doesn't matter which team we get.
The left-back has been available for the majority of the season but out of favour.
"He's always involved in goals, in actions, in assists, in the transition work after the team loses possession of the ball".
He said: "He is the best left back at the club, he won't play on Sunday but he showed what he can do".
