Luke Shaw puts in masterclass in draw against Chelsea

Manchester United left it late to ensure they got a share of the points against a Chelsea side that looked to be well on their way to all three points.

United clinched one point courtesy of a stoppage-time goal from Casemiro.

The Brazilian rose highest to head in a fabulous cross from Luke Shaw, which Chelsea’s shot-stopper could not keep out.

Shaw was brilliant, as he once again got the nod from Erik ten Hag ahead of Tyrell Malacia.

The defender won an amazing 100% of his tackles, in what was a masterful defensive performance from him.

Shaw registered an 84% accuracy, higher than the team’s average of 77%.

The 27-year-old had 79 touches of the ball, an indicator of his all-action involvement in the hotly-contested affair against Graham Potter’s Blues.

The England international made a mouth-watering nine ball recoveries, in a dominant display of his defensive superiority. He also made four interceptions.

The player made 2 key passes as he looked to unlock a stubborn and resilient Chelsea defence.

To cap off a wonderful night, Shaw grabbed an assist
