United defender eyeing further improvement
Manchester United defender Luke Shaw believes he can continue to improve after some star performances this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side dug deep after suffering three first-half injuries to hold Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford on Sunday.
United defended with a cohesion and resilience rarely seen towards the end of Jose Mourinho's reign, and 60 per cent of supporters named Shaw man-of-the-match after a display that saw ineffective Mohamed Salah taken off.
Injuries and long spells out of the side means such performances have been all too infrequent since arriving from Southampton in 2014, but those setbacks have only sharpened the 23-year-old's determination to reach the heights he knows he is capable of scaling.
Asked if the Liverpool match was one of his best performances for United, Shaw said: "Defensively definitely, yeah, but these are the games that you want to try and step up in, you want to try and prove why you're here.
"You want to play against the best, you want to test yourself against the best and I want to keep doing that in my career.
"I'm still quite young. There's always room to improve and that's what I want to do, keep improving and see what happens."
"I think I've still got another level to come
"I don't think I am really at my best and I know what I can do when I'm at my best.
"I feel I can do more but the only thing I need to focus on is myself, keeping myself in the right conditions and keep pushing myself every day and trying to become what I want to be."
