Luke Shaw was at fault for Huddersfield’s equaliser (Picture: Getty)Manchester United legend Gary Neville tore into Luke Shaw for his ’embarrassing’ defending during the club’s 1-1 draw with Huddersfield.
The Red Devils took an early lead through Scott McTominay as they looked to make a quick start to keep their top four hopes alive.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side took their foot off the gas afterwards and invited the relegated Terriers back into the match.
Nevertheless, United looked comfortable enough when Juan Mata was taking a corner for the Reds.
Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl collected his delivery and punted a long ball down field searching for lone frontman Isaac Mbenza.

And Neville was far from complimentary about Shaw’s defending, describing his mistake as ’embarassing’.
‘There was a goal similar last season that went right through this Manchester united defence,’ said Neville on Sky Sports.
‘Lossl he’ll be congratulated – he had a nightmare for the first goal but he sees it quickly.
‘Well Luke Shaw that’s just embarrassing. Then you look at David De Gea, he saves so many with his feet [but] this one’s through his legs.
‘Mbenza taks a look, side foots it, knows that ddg will split his legs to save it wiht his feet.’
