Shaw: Bring on the Boxing Day game
Luke Shaw can't wait for another chance to spread some Christmas cheer among the United supporters, as the Reds head towards a home meeting with Huddersfield Town on Boxing Day.
Speaking to the media after Saturday's game at Cardiff City, the left-back was buoyant after his team rewarded the travelling fans with a thumping 5-1 away win.
“The goals we scored were magnificent,” he reflected to reporters.
“Marcus Rashford's free-kick, the first goal, sort of helped to settle the nerves and then we carried on from there. When Cardiff scored, we didn't change anything, we kept going, and that third goal was amazing. It was an amazing team goal.”
Acknowledging the jubilation in the away end, Shaw added:
“As players, that's what we want the fans to feel.Their support gives us that extra push and obviously it was very nice for them to have five goals. We haven't done that for a while now.
“The fans are always really good, no matter where we go or what the result is. They've always been with us throughout the whole 90 minutes and hopefully they enjoyed the game as much as we did.The most important thing is we got the three points and obviously we look forward now to the next game.
“Obviously I hope everyone has a good Christmas and then looks forward to watching us at home on Boxing Day.”

United's winning start to life under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already reduced the gap to the coveted top four places in the table from 11 points to eight, after Chelsea suffered only their third Premier League defeat of the season, 0-1 at home to Leicester City.
“There's a very long way to go so we're not too focused on the other teams' scorelines at the moment,” said Shaw.
“The main focus is on us. If we carry on playing like this, we can pick up maximum points in the next few games and try to close that gap.”
