Manchester United failed to win against Brighton away. Erik ten Hag's team conceded a goal in the last minute after Luke Shaw played with his hand. McAlister had no problem scoring from the penalty spot to give his team the win.
Many are looking for a culprit after such a defeat, and the first target was Luke Shaw. However, until the moment when he played with his hand, Shaw was great and it is hard to say that he is to blame. After the match, this great left-back, who now plays as a central defender, spoke about the match and his impressions: ‘I know the problem, we know the problem, the problem is we don’t score,’ Shaw told Sky Sports, as quoted by METRO.
‘In the first half we had three or four big chances that we should be scoring. I think that’s happened a lot of times this season.
Luke Shaw on the match
Luke Shaw is aware that he made a mistake, but his teammates did not score a goal from chances that should have decided the match much earlier.
'But then again it comes down to my mistake at the end, but the chances we had we have to be scoring these goals. The game is completely different if we score early on with the chances we do make. Just not clinical enough.
I don’t really know what else to say to that. It’s disappointing I lost us a point at the end, but if you look at the first-half we could have been 3-0 up.’ Shaw also referred to his handball. 'It hurts a lot.
Last minute. Last action, I think I got a little nudge but the hand shouldn’t be there. I own up to it, take it on the chin, it cost us the game. It’s tough. I can’t even explain why my arm’s up there. I said I got a nudge, maybe that helped my arm go up, but still it shouldn’t be there.'
