Watch: Luke Shaw sends Almiron flying with powerful shove in Man Utd win
Luke Shaw registered an assist during Manchester United‘s 4-1 win over Newcastle – but the real moment of the game came when he bullied Almiron.
Shaw initially struggled at United but has enjoyed a renaissance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, establishing himself as one of the best left-backs in the Premier League.
The England international has impressed defensively and also enjoys charging down the wing with the ball at his feet.
After a quiet first half, he powered into the Newcastle half before poking the ball through to Cristiano Ronaldo, who took a touch before scoring his second goal.
But the real moment of the game came when Shaw went on one of those powerful runs down the left flank in the ninth minute. Almiron attempted to challenge him, only to be sent flying to the ground.
