What Luke Shaw has done to win over Jose Mourinho

Luke Shaw has rediscovered his attacking threat to win over Jose Mourinho.

That's according to the Manchester United left-back himself, who reckons he struggled to convince Mourinho of his worth last season because he didn't get forward enough.

Shaw delivered a man-of-the-match performance in Friday's night's Premier League opener against Leicester and capped an impressive offensive display with his first career goal.

Speaking after United's 2-1 win, the 23-year-old said he feels confident about his ability to get forward and provide telling contributions in the final third.

"I look at back last season and I don't think I was playing the way that people knew I was capable of playing," Shaw told Sky Sports.

"This season I've felt more confident, especially today, and I want to keep doing that. Obviously defending is the first thing for a full-back but nowadays it's all about attacking.

"I'm known for attacking and helping the team create chances and create goals and I did that today.

The defender added: "He [Mourinho] does like me to attack. I think that's why he was a bit disappointed with me last season because he knew I could do that and I wasn't doing that when I was playing.

"Of course defending is very important for him, he likes to keep the team compact. The defending is the most important thing for him, I'm learning more of that.

"I look at a lot of videos and I get a lot of help from him and the two new coaches we have in Kieran [McKenna] and Carras (Michael Carrick) this season."
