Manchester United secured a dramatic late victory against Young Boys on Tuesday night.

The English side were left frustrated throughout and needed a late winner from Marouane Fellaini to give them the three points.

United secured progression to the Champions League knockout rounds with the result.

There were certainly a number of talking points from the game.

Most of which surround Jose Mourinho, who has hit the headlines for two separate incidents.

His first came when he reacted poorly to Marcus Rashford missing a golden opportunity after just four minutes.

And the second came when he reacted to Fellaini's late equaliser by picking up and slamming a group of water bottles on the ground.

David de Gea's wonder save to prevent his side from going 1-0 down has also been a talking point.

Luke Shaw pushes a Young Boys player off the pitch

But, one incident that went largely under the radar was Luke Shaw pushing a Young Boys player off the pitch.

With the scores level after 82 minutes, Jean-Pierre Nsame was subbed off and deliberately attempted to waste time.

That went down badly with Shaw, who proceeded to hurry him off the pitch.

Watch the moment below:

It was a pretty comical moment with Shaw doing his best to make sure that no time was wasted.

The English left back has now reacted to the moment on Twitter and he's sent a gold tweet.

He wrote: "Just look at it as a last dance mate."

That is gold. Shaw was having none of Nsame's actions and he's added insult to injury here.

His tweet went viral within minutes as United fans loved his tweet.

Meanwhile, Shaw has been in the headlines in the past few days after quotes emerged from Mourinho saying Shaw, along with United's other young players, lack maturity.

But Shaw has played those comments down and maintained that he will continue to fight for the manager and the team.

“You need a thick skin to play under this manager and for this club,” he said, per the Guardian.

“But we need to fight for this manager, the team and the club. Everyone in the changing room is a fighter and we want the best for the team and the club.”
