Luke Shaw has been a monster on the pitch for Manchester United this season.

The Englishman has made a remarkable improvement in his attacking play, while also maintaining a balance in defence.

The left-back was influential in the 3-1 win against Newcastle on Sunday, as he created five chances for the Red Devils.

Shaw has now taken his chances created for the season so far, to an impressive 45— the highest for any player in his position in the Premier League, according to StatmanDave.
