He’s certainly got the talent to be a contender for best LB in the world, no doubt about that. He may be the most naturally gifted pure footballer in our squad.It is definitely close and he is without a doubt a top 5 left back in the world. Personal preference from there.
Shaw's passing from deep is the best around, and he has a good final ball too. His defending is excellent all around too.
