Shaw thinks Courtois saved Chelsea in weekend draw

Luke Shaw thinks Thibaut Courtois got Chelsea out of jail with his impressive performance at Manchester United on Sunday.

United needed an injury-time goal from Robin van Persie to take a point from the gripping 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, but they had numerous chances to build a good lead in the first half.

Courtois denied Van Persie with impressive saves either side of the break and he also thwarted Angel di Maria.

The Belgian, who has spent the last three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid, surprisingly dislodged Petr Cech from the number one spot upon his return to London this summer and after Sunday's performance, Shaw thinks it is easy to see why.

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," the United left-back said.

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.

Luke Shaw has vowed to improve and admitted he is yet to hit top form at Manchester United.

The £27million defender knows he has struggled to adapt since his summer move from Southampton.

And the 19-year-old, who played in United's 2-2 draw at West Brom on Monday, has given an honest assessment of his start at Old Trafford.

Shaw, who played for England in this summer's World Cup, also dropped back to the Under-21s this month to help them qualify for Euro 2015.

They haven't seen the best of me yet. I know I haven't been up to my full potential and I think maybe people can see that at the moment. I am trying hard and it's about getting used to everything.

When you come to a club like this it's never easy for a young player like me. But I'll get myself started soon and put in good performances.
