, says that he almost ruled him out from the lineup due to injury doubt.

Luke Shaw scored one of his side’s goals in their 2-0 victory in the Manchester derby.

Here is what the Red Devils’ boss said about the left back:

“Absolutely incredible, he was a massive doubt until after the warm-up he had to wait until after the warm-up to be cleared to play, so Alex was ready. Luke’s performance was top, he’s aggressive hard to play against one against one. When he goes forward on those runs he’s unstoppable. He’s improved so much and is improving all the time and I’m delighted for him.”

And about his side’s performance he added:

“It’s a marathon it’s been a relentless season it’s been a relentless year for everyone and a challenging year for everyone and the footballers as well but we’re lucky enough that we can play football and I think we enjoy playing.

“Milan on Thursday we can’t prioritize one game in front of the other, we just have to count the numbers, who’s fit, who’s not fit for Thursday and go again. I feel we’re a better team than what we were 12, 16, 18 months ago we have improved massively, more robust and resilient and there’s more personality in the team that’s what I like.

“We have to draw on previous good experience and how did that feel out there we knew we had to suffer, we suffered a lot, they worked their nuts off.”
