Ex-Man Utd midfielder Hargreaves: Shaw now superior to Liverpool left-back Robertson

Former Manchester United star Owen Hargreaves says Luke Shaw has usurped Andy Roberton as the Premier League's best left-back.

Liverpool star Robertson has been a standout at the position in recent years.

But Hargreaves believes Shaw, who was called up to the England this week, takes the mantle.

"He's earned the shirt, right now," Hargreaves told BT Sport. "He's the best left-back in the country.

"Last year it was Andy Robertson, now it's Luke Shaw. If he's fit and healthy, he's one of the best he's proved that.

"It's been Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes, rotating the player of the month roles. He's been magnificent. When Bruno Fernandes has had a quiet day, he (Shaw) has stepped up.

"In the last six weeks he's been fantastic. Luke on that left hand side has been fantastic in terms of creating more than anyone apart from Bruno Fernandes."
