Many believe that Manchester United's good results are due to good performance of their attacking line, but the excellent performance of the defensive line should not be overlooked.

The Red Devils managed to keep the gate shut in their last three clashes.

Now, Former Man Utd winger

Luke Chadwick

has stated his opinion on the team’s situation.

“Since the more defensive players have come into midfield, it’s given the defense more protection,”

Chadwick said.

“Harry Maguire has been brilliant for the last month or so, he’s looking like a top, top center-half. Wan-Bissaka, we all know about his qualities as a defender.

“But I thought the pick of the bunch was Luke Shaw. He’s had good games against Mohamed Salah in the past as a wide center-back in a back three, but as a full-back he dealt with him fantastically well and showed great energy getting up the pitch.

“He’s looking like the player we all wanted him to be when he had such a bright start at Southampton.

“I think a lot of that is down to the fact that he’s stayed fit, he’s had his injury problems but now he’s just showing the player he is and there’s every chance he can become first choice at left-back for England in the summer.”
