Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has been outstanding this season and had an impressive month of August when he bagged his first ever Player of the Month of the award since joining the club in 2014.

After being crowned United’s Player of the Month for August, the 23-year-old has again won the individual award for the month of September.

Shaw came up against David De Gea and Marouane Fellaini for the award in the September but deservedly won the award after yet another impressive month of football.

Shaw completed more sprints than any of his teammates in the Premier League games against both Wolves and West Ham (20 and 13 respectively) and his crosses from the left flank has been excellent as well.

Shaw garnered 40 per cent of the votes in Manchester United’s app poll, ahead of fellow nominees David De Gea (37%) and Marouane Fellaini (23%).

Speaking about his award, Shaw told United Review: “We’re professionals and I won’t be getting too carried away. I’ll just keep doing my job, keep working hard, keep doing what the manager and coaching staff say.

“I still want to improve and I still feel like I can improve massively, so that’s what I want to do, improve as a player and a person off the pitch as well and help the team out as much as possible.”

The last player to win consecutive monthly awards was Anthony Martial, in September and October 2017.
