Luke Shaw reacts to Alex Telles' wonder goal against Villarreal
Alex Telles scored his first Manchester United goal last night and it was worth the wait.
With United 1-0 down to Villarreal, they needed a moment of inspiration and it was Telles who provided it.
Telles was only in the side because of an injury to look Shaw and the England international took to Instagram to react to the goal after the game.
Telles arrived at United with a reputation for scoring goals but he hasn’t had too many chances to show that off.
Shaw’s injury handed him a chance to shine on a hugely important night and he took his chance well.
Scott McTominay and Jesse Lingard also took to Instagram to congratulate Telles on his wonder goal.
Based on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s fairly optimistic assessment ahead of the Villarreal game, Shaw could be back fit to face Everton on Saturday.
But given the strength of Telles’ performance, there’s no need to rush Shaw back against the Toffees.
He also produced a fantastic late block to keep the score at 1-1 before Cristiano Ronaldo did what Cristiano Ronaldo does to send Old Trafford wild.
