Hitting some good form lately. Impressive.

Quality was never in doubt. If we bring in more players of his quality, and, by some miracle, become a cohesive team instead of relying on individual quality, his fee will have been good value.

Not that I have a problem with the fee anyway. I'm delighted we payed it.

Yeah he was great again.

This is why he was getting criticism earlier... if you contrast the performances over the last two games between previous ones its night and day.

Looks like he's cutting out the stupid shit and becoming more aware of danger. Still dawdles on the ball a bit unnecessarily, but that also might go in time.

He is our best defender, but some considerable distance, and is, in my opinion, our second best outfield footballer, aside from Pogba, because he is also very influential on the pitch. He's captain, after hald a season.. what does that tell you about the others in our squad!!

Harry Maguire has had to arrive at a massive club, and has had to 'hit the ground' running as it were. Who does he have around him to rely on, and I ask that both defensively and otherwise? I have been quite alarmed by some of the criticism he has received on here.. he's carrying that defence, and is a major, major player for us, probably far more than I (and probably himself...) are comfortable with. He isn't perfect, who is... but he's one of the best in the country, and what a player he would be if he had a decent player alongside him. Can you imagine playing alongside Shaw, Bissaka, Fred and Lindeholf?? How fragile are they?

I would like him to be able to rest a few games, but I cannot see that happening. We paid over the odds for him, but I am glad he is at the club. He can make us a better team, and could not described as an average player. He'll start scoring soon, for sure, because he regularly has chances.

Just hope that in Ole's overhaul or the club's if Ole goes they have earmarked a centre back. I actually rate Linderof but if we are aiming to get back to top 4 and dare I say challenging for the title he can't be anything more than a back up to Maguire and another centre back. Obviously Koulibaly is the player we seem most linked to, though haven't seen enough of him yet.

Be interesting who he pairs in the summer at the Euros. Stones and Maguire doesn't inspire confidence but Gomez and Maguire has the makings of a good partnership. Even Mings and Maguire could work well. If it is Gomez and they play well together we should look for a player of that ilk. Quick, very tidy and a smart reader of the game.

Far better in a 3, can read the play, avoid being pulled wide where he struggles and be more of a free defender.

He was very good, very proactive in stopping the attacks, stepped up and passed the ball well. Beautiful header too, glad he scored his first PL goal for us.

Seemed to enjoy playing with Bailly.

Could have gotten a dickhead red card. Great goal.

The kick was reaction to the guy falling on to him, there's no way he'd risk a red card in that situation.

A real captain!

He had no reason to kick him on the balls, he obviously thought he was going to getjumped on but it looks bad all the same.

Could have been sent off, but it was clearly an instinctive defensive reaction. Good header, finally!

Good to see him score, all he needed was a decent ball ! Solid defensively.

He had a good game, he scored a good header but why he took the risk off getting a red card... i dont get it.
This. Very lucky to have stayed on when you consider Son got sent off for something similar against Rudiger.

Is retrospective action still a thing? Or has VAR ended that?

The more I see it, the more stupid it is.

I have been very critical but that was an excellent performance. I think personally I sometimes panic when new signings take time to bed in despite seeing again and again that you should never judge the first few months.

Great defending, lovely header, and maybe I’m biased but I don’t think it was a red, I think they got it right.

A captain. I like that we are adding players that will give shit back. He shouldn’t have retaliated but he began to show that we don’t take shit.
Williams, Bruno, Wan Bissaka, all have a bit of a bite and it adds to our team

Very lucky not to be sent off, I will be livid if the decision went against us.

Almost got a pointless red, but I thought he had a very good game. Took his goal very well. Finally we provide him with decent service from set plays.
