Luke Shaw has been full of praise for his Manchester United teammate, Marcus Rashford, after his game-winning goal against Wolves on Saturday afternoon.

Our no.10 began the game on the bench, but was called upon in the second half to be the difference maker – and he delivered. 

Shaw believes he has the makings of one of the world’s best players in his current form.

Shaw: We found a way to win

Luke Shaw reflects on the Reds' victory at Wolves, and the vital role played by his England team-mate Marcus Rashford...

“He’s in a really good way at the moment, extremely confident, very positive and very happy, and it’s nice to see,” he told BT Sport. 

“Everyone knows the qualities he’s got, he’s world class and he can be one of the best in the world if he keeps going and hopefully he does do that.” 
“For now it's about keeping them standards high; consistency is key to being a top top player,” Shaw added to club media at full-time.

“Every game he is making a difference and hopefully he can keep that up because, like I said, he can be the best in the world if he carries on.”

Saturday marked the third consecutive game Rashford has scored in all competitions since 2019, with goals in our previous outings against Burnley and Nottingham Forest.
