Luke Shaw put in a sensational performance this afternoon as Manchester United held Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Anfield.
Shaw has been on top form this season and in particular since United bought another left back, Alex Telles, from Porto, with Shaw seemingly thriving on the competition.
The England man was brilliant both offensively and defensively today and gave Liverpool’s Mo Salah absolutely nothing throughout the game.
The statistics bear out how well Shaw played.
He won 100% of his tackles, registered an amazing 100% long pass accuracy and had 81% overall pass accuracy.
In addition, Shaw made eight ball recoveries, drew four fouls, made four clearances and created two chances.
He also, of course, kept a clean sheet.
