Luke Shaw substitution at half-time in Aston Villa v Man Utd explained by Erik ten Hag

The change meant United had two predominantly right-footed players at left-back, and left centre-back where Harry Maguire was deployed in a partnership with Raphael Varane.

The manager admitted: “It’s not an advantage. Everyone knows my philosophy, to have Licha Martinez and Luke Shaw, two left-footed [defenders]. Also, we haven’t had Tyrell Malacia available for the whole season.

“So all the way, all the time, we have to make compromises. And that is not in our advantage. But today we managed it and hopefully it’s not too bad with Luke.”

Shaw has made 14 appearances this season, and 274 in total across his United career.
