(Video) Luke Shaw’s delicious first touch caught Mo Salah by surprise

There are not many positives to take from yesterday’s defeat at Anfield.

Manchester United were beaten by the better team and Liverpool are on course to winning their first league title in 30-years.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made some tactical changes to his side for the match. He set up with a back-three consisting of Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw.

Shaw? Yeah, Solskjaer overlooked Eric Bailly on the bench (only back from a long-term injury) and started Shaw at centre-back.

Footage of the first-half as emerged online (via @jonnyescott) of Shaw using trickery as his first touch to take the ball away from Mo Salah, who appeared as though he felt that he was in on goal if the ball was left to bounce.
