Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has admitted that he is still looking to find top form as he adapts to life at Old Trafford, the FA.com
The 19-year-old became one of the world’s most expensive teenagers when he was signed for £27m from Southampton in the summer, having been almost an ever-present in the Premier League for the Saints last season and showed enough promise to be selected in England’s squad for the World Cup – playing in their final Group D game against Costa Rica.
While an injury hampered the start of his Man Utd career, Shaw’s fitness has been called into question, with manager Louis van Gaal having placed him on an individual regime to help improve his physical condition.
With Marcos Rojo forced to play in central defence due to injury absentees, Shaw has been handed three appearances for United so far, but admits the club’s supporters are yet to see the best of him. Ahead of Sunday’s game against Chelsea, he said: “The fans haven’t seen the best of me yet. I know I haven’t been up to my full potential.
“There aren’t many games that are bigger than this one and that’s why I’m really hoping to be a part of it. I want to show people what I can do in games like this. “I’m really looking forward to it, especially with how big this fixture is.
“Everyone knows that United-Chelsea games are massive. It’s one of the biggest games in world football and there will be people everywhere watching it on TV.”
