Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw scored an absolute beauty against Leicester City this evening to make it 2-0 in their Premier League meeting.
The England international put a frustrating Old Trafford career up to now behind him by getting forward to net with a superb piece of individual skill.
Watch the Shaw goal video below and judge for yourselves, but a number of fans on Twitter are now hailing this strike as even better than Dennis Bergkamp’s Premier League classic for Arsenal against Newcastle back in 2002.

On that day, the Dutchman produced a sublime first touch that saw him beat a defender from what looked an impossible position before rolling the ball into the back of the net.
Similarly here, Shaw’s touch initially looks a strange one, but he works his way around his opponent to then produce a neat finish from close range.
We’re not sure he entirely meant it like Bergkamp seemed to, but here’s how it’s going down on Twitter right now…
I think Shaw's goal is better than Bergkamp's
