Luke Shaw has hailed world-class goalkeepers David De Gea and Thibaut Courtois after their performances at Old Trafford.

The Belgium international look to have helped Chelsea secure three points before Robin van Persie scored a stoppage-time equaliser.

We know what his qualities are and he’s proved to be a great buy for them

Meanwhile, United shot stopper De Gea had to be at his best to deny Eden Hazard in the second half of the stalemate on Sunday.

And Shaw, who started at left-back against his boyhood club, was left impressed by the standard of goalkeeping on show at Old Trafford.

“If you look at David’s save just before their goal, it was a world-class stop and I think, in the past few weeks, with what he has been doing, it’s amazing to see him come into form like this now,” Shaw told United’s website.

“We’ve seen what Courtois has done in the past six months, not just for Chelsea but before that [with Atletico] so we know what his qualities are and he’s proved to be a great buy for them.

“We had a lot of chances and, with him in goal, he helped them a lot. Robin had a few and I think it might have been Adnan [Januzaj] who had a shot as well.

“There were those chances but he’s a world-class goalie in their goal and he helped them a lot.”
