Manchester United left back, Luke Shaw is determined to step up and prove his worth to coach Jose Mourinho.
The England international has had an indifferent start to life under Mourinho and at Unites, partly due to injury.
Shaw is eager to cement his position as left back and was well on the way to that after impressing in preseason. However, a mistake in the 3-1 loss to Watford drew scathing criticism from Mourinho in September.
After missing the 4-0 thrashing to Chelsea, he was utilised in the EFL cup against Manchester City due to the unavailability of Bailly and the Englishman is eager to return to the starting XI.
“It’s normal you’re frustrated on Sunday because I would have loved to play in that game [against Chelsea] but it obviously wasn’t meant to be and at the end of the day it is the manager’s decision,” said Shaw.
“Obviously with the injury with Eric now it might be my time to step up and show the manager what I can do and that he can trust me.
“The first half [against City] wasn’t the best of mine. I thought I did good but on some of the crosses I wasn’t maybe getting tight enough, but he [Jesus Navas] is a very quick player and it was quite tough.
“But I came out in the second half and I felt much better. I was closing him sharply, we made sure he got no crosses in and I felt really good. Hopefully I play on Saturday and get another 90 minutes and a good result with that.”
Shaw and United welcome Burnley to Old Trafford on Saturday, seeking to end a three-game winless streak in the Premier League.
