Luke Shaw sets record straight after 'liking' post calling out Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial

Luke Shaw has set the record straight after liking a post on social media which called out his Manchester United teammates Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Rashford was dropped by manager Erik ten Hag for Wednesday's 2-1 win over Chelsea, with Alejandro Garnacho, Rasmus Hojlund and Antony starting in attack for United.

Scott McTominay scored both goals as Ten Hag's side claimed a much-needed victory following reports of dressing room unrest at Old Trafford.

Rashford was introduced as a second-half substitute, while Martial remained on the bench.

United left-back Shaw liked a post on X following the match, which claimed both players could be sidelined for the foreseeable future.

The post, published by United fan account centredevils, featured a quote from Patrice Evra, which read: "I think it will be tough for Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to come back into the starting eleven."

Shaw later unliked the post on social media and set the record straight.

"Come on don't be silly, obviously not intentional," posted the England international.

Speaking after the match, United manager Ten Hag praised his team's "spirit" and insisted the squad was unified.

"I think, in the first half, we created a lot of chances, by 30 minutes, we could go up by three goals maybe," said Ten Hag.

"To be fair, they outplayed us as well, one, two or three times and also created chances but you make your own luck when you have the spirit we showed today."

McTominay, meanwhile, said the United dressing room was determined to carry on their momentum.

"It was a game that we had to come out and show to the fans our full focus was on the match," he said.

"We wanted to give a reaction, but it has to be like that every week, which is something we speak about in the dressing room. It can't just be one game when we have to react - we have to show that every week.

"We know the fans are extremely demanding and so are we as players, so that's what we expect. Going back to the Newcastle game, we know that wasn't good enough and that's still stinging us.

"We can't have those anomalies when we go somewhere and we don't play like we can, maybe not showing as much fight as we should. But tonight is a building block and we can take it step by step without getting carried away."

United move up to sixth after their victory and are now only three points off defending champions Manchester City in fourth.

United next face Bournemouth at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday before hosting Bayern Munich in a must-win Champions League match on Tuesday night.
