Gary Neville praises Luke Shaw following Manchester United’s win v Crystal Palace in Premier League

Gary Neville was impressed with Luke Shaw’s performance for Manchester United against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw is a happy man.

The England international left-back has one of his best games this season against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Shaw was arguably the best player on the pitch as United edged past the Eagles 1-0 to keep their top-four chances intact.

The 19-year-old was strong and solid at the back, and also made important forays forward. The teenager ended the match with impressive stats: one shot, 84% pass accuracy, two crosses and two take-ons.

Earlier this evening Shaw took to social networking site Twitter to revel in United’s success and promptly got a reply from club legend Gary Neville.

United are currently sixth in the Premier League table with 16 points from 11 points, just two points behind fourth-placed West Ham United.
