Luke Shaw had an injury-hit season for United.
But while he’s often struggled for consistency, he’s still very much a player who can be a big asset at Old Trafford.
Shaw was outstanding a year ago for United, shining as Solskjaer steered the club to second in the Premier League table.
He even outdid Liverpool’s Andy Robertson – which takes some doing.
And while Shaw can admittedly be frustrating, he’s a confidence player. If Ten Hag can get his mood right, the former Southampton star will have a big role to play.
Out of all the midfielders at the club, Bruno Fernandes remains the best at their disposal.
Admittedly, the Portugal international got increasingly worse towards the end of last season. He was, for example, particularly bad in the 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Yet Fernandes is still one of the best players in world football.
That’s why United gave him a five-year deal at the club last month. It’s because they know, behind the scenes, the former Sporting Lisbon star is worth the investment.
Ten Hag just needs to add more finesse to Fernandes’ game, and order, for him to improve.
