Shaw wants Man United to avenge Swansea defeat.


Red Devils left-back Luke Shaw says he would like to seal a win over Swansea City who defeated Louis van Gaal's side 2-1 at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season.

Gary Monk's team had their first three points of the campaign against Manchester United back in August 2014 but the Swans have stuttered since then and the Reds now hold the Barclays Premier League's third-best defensive record.

With Van Gaal's team on a run of one defeat in 19 matches, Shaw who's enjoying his debut season at the club hopes they can extend their unbeaten run with a win at Swansea.

“Swansea started the season off well and obviously beat us at Old Trafford, which is something that we want to get revenge for,” Shaw told MUTV.

"We know how good Swansea can be on their day. They like to pass the ball around and they’ve had some good results but also some bad ones - we saw the Chelsea game at their place when they were beaten 5-0.

"This game is one that we're looking at positively. We have been working hard in training and we are up for it."

Despite United being third in the Premier League table and in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, Van Gaal and his team have been criticised on occasions but the former Southampton man is convinced the squad are heading in the right path.

“I wouldn’t say we are really pleased with where we are in the league because we want to be challenging for the first spot,” he explained. “There have been a lot of negative comments about us in the press but we have only lost one game in the last 19 and that shows we are improving as a team.

“Maybe there are still comments going around that we aren’t playing the right football, but we are not losing and we are getting results. If we can turn those draws into wins, then there won’t be many negative comments.

"As a team, we are all happy with how it is going and we are still in the FA Cup, which is a very important thing for us, so we just need to kick on from here.”
