Luke Shaw made his first appearance of the season for Manchester United last night in the win over Burton Albion.
Shaw was a half time substitute, coming on with the Red Devils already 3-0 up.
The left-back began with a real show of burst and determination to get forward but was unable to sustain this as the match went on.
Shaw's passing in the final third was inaccurate and his defending lacked aggression and he was slow to closing space down.
The former England international missed pre-season so being off the pace is understandable. Last night's game was for him, a match to get up to speed.
On the evidence of his performance, Shaw has plenty of work to do if he is to challenge for a starting spot in United's side.
All is not lost as United's left-back spot is far from settled, but Shaw must raise his game and his fitness in order to make it his own once again.
This is a big season for Shaw to try and regain the faith of manager Jose Mourinho after a disappointing season last time out.
Here is a look at how United fans reacted to his performance...

Luke Shaw is such a waste! Backed out of tackle, strolls back into 'position' & then doesn't close the cross down for their goal ♂️ #MUFC— Russell Collins (@russcollins08) September 20, 2017
Not very optimistic about Shaw's #MUFC future. He will need a miracle to get a chance with movement like this.— ManUtdDailyNews (@ManUtdNews24x7) September 20, 2017
Shaw will need games, and I am afraid that he is far away from even the bench at the moment #MUFC— ManUtdDailyNews (@ManUtdNews24x7) September 20, 2017
Luke Shaw wouldnot get into a sunday league team at this rate #mufc— Smit Desai (@thesmitdesai) September 20, 2017
Does Luke Shaw know he's on a football pitch? Passed the ball backwards almost every time and doesn't know what an overlap is #mufc— Dan (@DanFitz1983) September 20, 2017
On this evidence Luke Shaw is a long way from the #mufc first team— Thomas Shanahan (@clifford0584) September 20, 2017
Luke Shaw is playing like a man who has absolutely no idea what he's meant to be doing. #mufc— Shane McMenemy (@shanemcmenemy) September 20, 2017
