English left-back’s faltering form came to light once again against Pep Guardiola’s men as the Red Devils slumped to a 2-0 defeat against their high-flying city rivals.
As expected, United fans did not take kindly to Shaw’s sluggish performance and were involved in some not-so-gentle criticism aimed at the defender.
Call of Duty’s Twitter handle too came into the fray, comically quoting a tweet alleging the former Southampton man of timing his injuries conveniently around new CoD releases.
This frenetic fan theory was backed by evidence by its author, who posted pictures revealing the footballer’s injuries interspersed around the emergence of the newer editions of the game.
What’s more, is that the same user made a similar case against the Red Devils’ star last season, unfolding unfathomable stats that proved that Shaw had spent more time on the video game (74,000+) than on the pitch for his side. (9000+)
The fan’s collective assessment on the matter was that the left-back needs to set his priorities straight and focus more on the field than online.
Shaw suffered a blow to the head on derby day and was replaced by concussion substitute Telles, on the same day the famous first-person shooter’s latest release called Call of Duty: Vanguard was released.
