Luke Shaw has played with some high-quality players at Manchester United and with the England national team but he has whittled them down to the five best as part of a dream five-a-side team.

Shaw, the 25-year-old left-back, had some tough decisions to make, snubbing the likes of Robin van Persie and Joe Hart, in favour of current team-mates Marcus Rashford and David de Gea.

De Gea kept his spot ahead of the newly emerging Dean Henderson – who Shaw describes as ‘brilliant’ but is let down by his lack of playing time at Old Trafford – while Shaw picked himself in a one-man defence.

Paul Pogba and Wayne Rooney were chosen as his midfielders, with Marcus Rashford getting the nod over Van Persie.

‘It’s hard this,’ said Shaw in a Q&A with the club’s official website. ‘For my keeper… this is tough because I’ve played with some very good keepers.

‘I’ve played with Deano a little bit but not too much so I can’t put him in, but he’s a brilliant keeper.

‘I think Joe Hart deserves a mention because he was an unbelievable keeper. When I was away with England and played with him I was really impressed with the way he was and the keeper he was, I thought he was absolutely top notch.

‘I’m going to stick with David [De Gea] in goal and then in defence… this is really hard!

‘I’ve got to put myself in and then I’ll have two in midfield – Rooney and Pogba and then one left… a striker.

‘Of course, I played with Van Persie and he was an unbelievable finisher, but I think I’m going to say, because he’s always on the left side with me and I like having him in front of me, I think I’m going to have to say Rashy.’
