Video: Footage of Luke Shaw sending Thiago sliding along his face surfaces online

Manchester United’s clash with Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday didn’t quite live up to all the hype but one person did put on a show and that was United left-back Luke Shaw.

Shaw put in a remarkable performance as he kept Mo Salah at bay for the whole game plus giving some other Liverpool players bit of a lesson.

Firstly a clip of Shaw sending Anfield new boy Thiago sliding along his face surfaced which seemed to go relatively unnoticed during the game.

The game was a battle for the top spot in the Premier League but unfortunately for the viewers it ended up being a 0-0 goalless drought.

That didn’t stop over 4.8 million people tuning in in the final 5 minutes of play. It became the biggest ever audience for an event exclusively shown on Sky Sports.

Those 4.8 million people would have been treated to a wonderful display of attack-minded defending by United’s left-back – Luke Shaw.

Sky are reporting that the game had an average of 4.5m viewers throughout the game.

The Super Sunday showdown overtook the previous record which was set during Manchester City beating Manchester United 1-0 in April of 2012.

This also makes yesterday’s game the second most watched Premier League game of all time, right behind last June’s Merseyside derby which was shown free-to-are on Pick TV and Sky One simultaneously.

The 0-0 draw means United stay top of the table and Ole’s side’s surge for the title continues with 3 teams close behind in Manchester City, Leicester City and Liverpool.

Who do you think is going to win the Premier League this season and will anyone else break this record before June?
