Luke Shaw pinpoints what cost Manchester United against Liverpool

Luke Shaw believes Manchester United's profligacy upfront was to blame for their 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

Goals in either half from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah secured Liverpool's 2-0 win as they moved 16 points clear off second-placed Manchester City.

Anthony Martial, Fred, and Andreas Pereira had chances to draw United level before a quick counter in the final minute allowed Salah to double Liverpool's lead.

In an interview with Sky Sports after the defeat to Liverpool, Shaw revealed what cost United, "Very disappointed. We didn't really deserve that - especially 2-0.

"When it was 1-0 it was really good. We had that chance with Anthony Martial. The lads gave it their all. We didn't have many chances, but those that came we should have taken them.

"We know their qualities, and there were periods where we had to defend well. Last 30 minutes we controlled it. We didn't take our chances and they took them. Van Dijk is a massive guy and threat for them on set-pieces.

"It's disappointing for us. In the first half, over the past year - Liverpool have blown teams away in the first 20 minutes. We were still in the game until the 90th minute."
