[Luke Shaw speaks about missing out on being part of England’s FIFA World Cup] Of course, it was horrible [missing out]. Ash definitely deserved it because he had an amazing year. I was hoping that maybe I could have gone with him but it wasn’t meant to be. It was horrible sitting there watching it. It was nice they were doing so well and it was amazing, but you sit there wishing you were there. That’s another thing pushing me on more because it’s horrible sitting there when you’ve been there and you want to be there even more

[Manchester United defender Luke Shaw gives insight into being team-mates with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, during a Combat Corona FIFA Twitch tournament] He was mad. I think he was what we needed in the dressing room. He’s unbelievable, he still had the talent and even though he was a bit older he was still the amazing player that he had been. But I think inside the dressing room he was great. He had a lot of jokes but I think when it got serious, and when he had to sort of put his foot down, you knew about it. I think he was a born winner. Even in little training games, if he didn’t win and you were on his team he would absolutely kill you. So I think he got the best out of everyone when he was there, as in training-wise, because people couldn’t sort of [slack] off kind of because if you’re on his team and you lose, you’re dead

[Luke Shaw reveals he scored twice in 4-4 Man Utd friendly draw as Rashford & Fernandes also on target] We had a great 11-a-side training game on the Old Trafford pitch over the weekend and it was eventful! There have been a lot of different things circulating on social media and I’m happy to set the record straight: it did end 4-4 and I did score twice! Also on my team, Bruno [Fernandes] got one and Jamo [Daniel James] got one, while, on the other team, Rashy [Marcus Rashford] got two and so did Odion [Ighalo]

To be fair, my first goal was decent. It was from a great cross by Bruno and my volley went straight in. I was happy with it. My other one was just getting forward, Juan [Mata] played it to me on the edge of the box, I took a touch and shot in. It was quite an open game, as you can probably gather, with a lot of space, since it was the first game back. Everyone looked good and the most important thing was getting minutes in the tank. This was definitely a step forward from the games we’ve been having at the training ground

It was also our first chance to get used to a silent Old Trafford, which was different. We all felt like it made the pitch seem bigger because the stands are totally empty. Sometimes during games the fans push you on when you’re tired, but now we’ve got to get to grips without that support. It was a really valuable exercise to be able to play at Old Trafford without that. We were creating our own noise around the stadium and that’s something we’ve got to make sure we do. The important thing is that it’s another step forward. It’s getting more and more exciting now and we just want to get playing games. We’ve got a couple of in-house games at the training ground scheduled over the next few days, which will help us step things up even further before the big game next week against Spurs

It’s a massive fixture and I think everyone on both sides has got full-strength squads now, so it should be a really good game. It’s definitely one we’re all looking forward to. In training, we’re looking really sharp, really fit and ready to go. We’re looking forward to it. We just need to pick up where we left off, doing the things we were doing before the break, and, hopefully, we can climb towards the Champions League spots, which is what we really want
