Irwin was full of praise for Shaw while commentating on Saturday’s match for MUTV and the Irishman praised the youngster’s relationship with Ashley Young on the flank..

“Luke last year never really got into a flow or a rhythm because of the injuries,” Irwin said. “It’s great to see him come back this year. I think he’s been mightily impressive. He’s struck up a great partnership with Ashley Young out there on the left. .

“I thought they were a real threat against San Jose Earthquakes and I think they continued that today against Barcelona. They did some good overlapping which enabled Ashley, who’s more comfortable on his right foot, to cut inside. Luke gives us good options going down the left..

“We know he’s quick, we know he’s got good ability, that’s never been in doubt and it looks now that Luke is fit, clear of injuries and let’s hope he continues like that because he is a top player.”
