A West Ham fan captured Luke Shaw's immediate reaction to David de Gea saving a penalty for Manchester United - he didn't realise the game was still being played.

De Gea saved his first penalty in over five years on Sunday afternoon to keep United's 2-1 lead over the Hammers.

Mark Noble came on to take the spot-kick after Shaw had handled the ball in injury time, moments after Jesse Lingard put the Red Devils ahead.

Someone in the London Stadium filmed de Gea diving to his left and saving from Noble, which saw Shaw run over.

The ball hadn't gone out of play however and United had the chance to counter thanks to de Gea's firm punch.

Shaw approached his teammate before immediately turning around and running away to join the attack.

Fans on social media have reacted to the incident and they're glad it was caught in the ground. Just a shame it was West Ham fans who did.

De Gea has re-established himself as United's number one this season after an injury to Dean Henderson.

Speaking about his penalty save, de Gea told MUTV: "Well as soon as I made the save I thought 'maybe I went from the line?' So I was a bit scared.

"But it was a good save at the end of the game so it is massive for us."

United sit third in the Premier League, level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool.
