Manchester United put in a woeful performance against minnows Fenerbahce in their Europa League group stage clash. Left-back Luke Shaw was singled out for criticism after the game, with many questioning his fitness.
It was an all round poor performance from Jose Mourinho’s men against Fenerbahce. A late goal from Wayne Rooney was the only consolation for United, as they failed to pose any sort of attacking threat to the Turks. The 2-1 loss leaves them third in their group, with a big chance of crashing out in the group stage of the Europa League.
While a lot of the criticism was directed at striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, young English defender Luke Shaw was also found wanting. The full-back looked very poor against Fenerbahce and Manchester United fans raised concerns about his match fitness, calling him overweight.
Starting to understand why Jose doesn’t fancy Luke Shaw…

Luke Shaw is struggling. Everything coming down United’s left. To be fair, he’s not getting a lot of help.

Can understand that Shaw’s confidence was absolutely shattered after the awful injury, but his defending this season has been questionable.

Luke Shaw looks twice the size and half the player of last season.

Going to take a while before we see the best version of Luke Shaw. Looks out of shape & his work rate tonight was appalling.

Surely I can’t be the only one on here who thinks Shaw doesn’t look fit?.. He’s so slow and has lost his pace, to me he looks overweight.
