Luke Shaw was brought up as a Chelsea fan but, despite interest from his boyhood club, opted to sign for Manchester United in the summer.
Yesterday was his first game against Chelsea since signing for United and he said that the feeling off seeing Robin van Persie equalise was unlike anything else he’s ever experienced.
It’s a feeling I’ve never felt before. The whole crowd got up and you saw how much it meant to all of us. We all jumped on each other! We spoke in the dressing room and we knew we could have got three points with the chances we had and maybe we could have done a bit better on their goal. But that’s football at the end of the day.
Thibaut Courtois was named Man of the Match, in a game that saw United have 19 shots compared to Chelsea’s 9, and Shaw has claimed that their goalkeeper stopped the blues from losing.
We had a lot of chances and, with him in goal, he helped them a lot. Robin had a few and I think it might have been Adnan who had a shot as well. There were those chances but he’s a world-class goalie in their goal and he helped them a lot.
