Shaw becomes youngest Saint to start in Premier League
2:25pm Saturday 10th November 2012 in Sport
Teenage left-back Luke Shaw will today become the youngest ever Saints player to start a Premier League match, after being named in the lineup for the visit of Swansea.
Shaw, 17, was used as a late substitute in last Monday's 2-0 defeat at West Brom, but is in this afternoon's starting XI and will have the task of dealing with the visitors' club-record signing, Spanish winger Pablo Hernandez.
Academy graduate Shaw has made one start already for Saints this season, in the 4-1 Capital One Cup win at Stevenage in August.
