Watch the video below as N’Golo Kante plays Pedro in with a neat through-ball, only for Shaw to read the danger and get a crucial block in.

While it might be a stretch to say this was a certain goal, Pedro would have had a great opportunity to slot home from there if not for Shaw’s quick thinking and strong defending.

It remains 2-0 to United at the time of writing as they look to be heading for yet another hugely impressive result under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
