Luke Shaw has taken to social media to wish Wayne Rooney a happy birthday after Manchester United’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea on Sunday.

Neither Shaw nor Rooney featured for the Red Devils in west London as the home side made it an uncomfortable return to Stamford Bridge for Jose Mourinho.

Goals from Pedro Rodriguez, Gary Cahill, Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante wrapped up a comprehensive victory for Antonio Conte’s men.

The result left Manchester United languishing six points behind leaders Manchester City after nine games of the Premier League season.

However, despite the disappointment of watching his team-mates be humiliated in west London on Sunday, Shaw used his personal Instagram account to send a special birthday message to Rooney.

The defender posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Happy Birthday Wazza”
