Shaw picks apart Man Utd’s display vs Arsenal as he laments two points dropped

Luke Shaw admits Manchester United gave up valuable ground in the title race by squandering "countless massive chances" in their 0-0 draw with Arsenal.

The Red Devils had more possession than their Emirates hosts but were ponderous in their build-up play and fashioned only a handful of clear-cut chances, with Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes guilty of squandering good opportunities.

At the other end, Arsenal arguably went closest to snatching all three points as Alexandre Lacazette's free kick cannoned against the crossbar.

The result means United have taken just one point from their last two games and leaves them three points behind Premier League-leaders Manchester City, who also have a game in hand.

Shaw insisted the game was there for the taking as he fired an ominous title warning to his teammates after the full-time whistle was blown in north London.

"[It's] two points dropped I feel. I felt we were in control, Arsenal had a spell but we were comfortable and had countless massive chances we haven't taken," the left-back told Sky Sports .

"It would have been a brilliant result winning here, we have to be winning these games.

"The chances we had, I don't think it's acceptable to come away with a point – I haven't been in the changing room yet but I'm sure the lads will be disappointed.

"At times we were too slow. Second half we were sloppy and gave the ball away.

"We didn't look like we wanted to play. We created the chances and failed to score again and it cost us two points.

"We dropped points in midweek and again here. If we want to be in the title race we have to be winning these games. I don't know what more to say."

United have the chance to return to winning ways as they welcome Southampton to Old Trafford on Tuesday.
