Former Chelsea and Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has hailed Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell as a better player than Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw.

“I think the way Chilly [Ben Chilwell] defends, he stands up, very rarely takes chances,” he told SBK Sportsbook. “He would be a harder match.

“Luke Shaw I would prefer to play against. I think he does fall asleep sometimes and lose his position and when he does venture forward he doesn’t have the same qualities as Chilly does.

“Chilly plays more like a defensive winger, whereas I think Shaw’s just a defender that can go forward. But I’d rather play against Luke Shaw.”
