Luke Shaw praises the home fans and claims Manchester United feel unbeatable at Old Trafford
Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has come out with high praise for the fans and feels that the team feels unbeatable at Old Trafford.
United’s home record in the league has been phenomenal this season. They have won 13 of the 17 games and conceded only eight goals so far and sit fourth in the table when it comes to home games.
Shaw has been one of the mainstays of the team under Erik ten Hag in this campaign. The England international has been used both as a centre-back and a left-back by the manager.
Here’s what the defender says in praise of the fans and the invincibility feeling at Old Trafford (h/t Manchester United website):
”It’s tough to say what it is, but the atmosphere the fans create definitely helps. They’ve been amazing this season, home and away. But I think when we’re at Old Trafford we feel unbeatable, we feel good and when we’re there, the mentality is right and that needs to stay that way.
”We also need to have the results we’ve been having at home in away games. That’s where we’ve been poor this season, in away games at times, especially in the big matches when we’ve not been ourselves.”
As touched upon by Shaw there, United have been abysmal away from home this season. Out of the nine league defeats so far, eight of them have come away from Old Trafford.
If they are to get close to Manchester City in the league and do well in Europe, improving the away form is a must.
But, every good team do well at their home ground. That’s a basis for better things to come in the future. Ten Hag’s first season at the club has been exceptional.
The Dutchman said that although the direction of the project is going in the right direction, a lot better can be done to win trophies in the coming years.
