There's been plenty of talk about how he was behaving off the field in fairness. But he appears to have settled down at last and is getting a chance.

He could be great and we'd still need another LB and RB in summer. He's been ok but needs to make progress and let's hope he becomes undroppable.

Or, in the case of Tuanzebe and other youngsters, kitted out in a life jacket and watching from the shore.

Perhaps 'sink or swim' is too broad a term then.

The approach is that you will get chances, but if you don't take them, you're gone. And for a while.

Unless you're Lukaku.

Shaw still isn't trusted as first choice, but he's in a much better position than he Was a few months ago.
