Manchester United held on to a 0-0 draw against Liverpool on Sunday despite a number of injury problems.
United were forced into making their three substitutions in the first half, as Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard – himself on as a sub – all required treatment from the club’s medical staff.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thus had no opportunity to change his XI in the second half.
Nevertheless, United turned in a solid display against Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasing Reds, with Luke Shaw in particularly good form at left-back.
The 6 foot 1 defender managed to keep elite winger Mohamed Salah quiet, so much so that the Egypt international was substituted in the second half. Divock Origi replaced him.
The Belgian had no such luck down the right either, however, and Shaw and his fellow defenders managed to keep a clean sheet.
And United fans were delighted with the former Southampton left-back’s display at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw was magnificent, he was motm for me too. Thought McTominay did really well in there too. Been hard on Pereira but he slotted in well. Pogba worked his socks off too. Lindelof and Smalling solid. #MUFC

Luke Shaw has been utterly outstanding this afternoon. So much so that Salah has been taken off. Well played.

Luke Shaw was phenomenal today, for all his critics. What a performance. With the horrid injury crisis, I’ll take a point from that! We fight on lads!

Salah was inside Luke Shaw’s pocket.

Luke Shaw was defensively outstanding today. I’ll go as far as saying thats his best defensive performance ever at United. Salah couldn’t do a thing against him.

Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling were all superb in the defense today. Liverpool’s front three did not get anything. Solid performance. #mufc
