Luke Shaw insisted nobody at is thinking about winning the title after Saturday’s dramatic and controversial derby victory over .

United stunned the defending champions as they followed up a highly-contentious equaliser with a late winner at Old Trafford to move within a point of their second-placed neighbours in the Premier League.

While arguments raged over the nature of Bruno Fernandes’ leveller – awarded despite ’s run towards the ball from an offside position in the build-up – there was no denying the 2-1 win represented a strong statement from resurgent United.

Erik ten Hag’s men have been transformed since they were thrashed 6-3 by City at the Etihad Stadium in October, losing just one of 19 games and winning their last nine in succession in all competitions.

Shaw, who again impressed in a centre-back role, however, is not getting carried away with suggestions United could go on to overhaul Arsenal – opponents next Sunday – at the top.

‘It’s too early to think about that,’ said the defender. ‘Right now as a team we have make sure we have the right consistency in performances and results.

‘It’s always about winning. If you play well or not you need to be winning, and recently we’ve been doing that. We’ve not been playing our best but we’ve still been winning games.

‘We’re still in four competitions. We’re Manchester United, we have to aim high, and of course we want to win all four but whether that happens or not is down to us, it’s down to the way we act, the way we rest and get ready for the next game.

‘Now we have to forget about this game, forget about this win. We have a massive game on Wednesday (away) against Crystal Palace.’
