Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has sent a message of support to Kurt Zouma after the Chelsea defender suffered a terrible-looking knee injury against the Red Devils.

The French international could be out for the rest of the season after he went down in agony clutching his knee after jumping to challenge for the ball.

Shaw knows what Zouma is going through having suffered a horrendous leg-break during Manchester United's Champions League tie against PSV Eindhoven earlier this season, and took the opportunity to send a message to his fellow defender after today's 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

The former Southampton man wrote on Twitter: "Best wishes to @KurtZouma get well soon!"

Manchester United appeared to be heading for their first win against Chelsea since 2012 when Jesse Lingard struck from inside the area, however Diego Costa salvaged a point for the Blues.

Speaking in his post-match press conference after this afternoon's game, Guus Hiddink confirmed that Zouma would be sent for scans tomorrow, and isn't ready to rule the defender out for the season just yet.

The result leaves Chelsea 17 points adrift of the race for a top four finish, while Manchester United are six points off fourth-placed Manchester City.

"We deserved the point at the end, because in any minute you can score. I think United started very well," said Hiddink. "They had a beautiful goal from Lingard. But with assistance from us - which is what we have to improve still."

Chelsea will now turn their attention to their next Premier League game against Newcastle, before their Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain.

Can Chelsea finish in the top six this season?
