Luke Shaw Reveals The Match That Made Man United Great Again

Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has said that January’s 6-0 win at Tranmere Rovers was the turning point in his side’s 2019-20 campaign.

United had lost two consecutive matches heading into the FA Cup fourth-round tie, falling to Liverpool and Burnley by 2-0 scorelines.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men had no trouble with their League Two opponents, with Harry Maguire, Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, and Anthony Martial giving the visitors a 5-0 lead by half-time.

United have not lost a game since that win at Tranmere, going 11 matches unbeaten before the coronavirus pandemic put a halt to football in the UK.

Shaw has said that his side got a necessary boost of confidence following their lopsided win.

“It was a very professional performance and attitude,” Shaw told Manchester United’s official website.

“I think that gave everyone a confidence boost because, after that, if I’m not mistaken, we’ve gone on a really good run since that win. So that game was our stepping stone to improve as a team, and to keep a really good record going.”

“It was a very positive changing room, a happy one, because we had come off the back of not very good results,” Shaw continued.

“But I think it was even more important because we had a massive game against Man City coming up, so it was good in two ways really: the result and clean sheet, and obviously that we got to rest some players, like Jamo (Daniel James), who’d played a lot of football.”
