Really hope Harry is ready for Saturday. Without him in the League cup we were torn apart for 45 minutes. Great thing is he is willing and able to play through the pain barrier..unlike some CBs we have on the books
I thought he was our motm. His last ditch tackle, clearance & header. Spot on. Bissaka was great today while Martial showed some great moments not just the goal but I thought Maguire was the key for that clean sheet today.
Good in defense - had a sloppy moment in 1st half when he got nutmegged.
2nd half he missed with 3 unnecessary long passes when we were under a lot of pressure, and just had won the ball back. It was really annoying that our captain didn't keep his cool and kept passing the ball more around. All three times - there were no chance of us counter-attacking - as we had passed it around for 4-5 passes before he decided to play it long when he had short options, and he was not under pressure. Good think City didn't do much with the ball today - but giving it away for nothing is generally a bad idea.
Think his best performance was almost the post-game interview with MUTV, where he says the fans deserve it for the support and atmosphere, and that they deserve the three points for when they go to work monday morning and have the bragging rights.
So much over rating of Maguire on here. He is good in the situations he feels comfortable in but take him out of his comfort zone and he is a calamity waiting to happen. Have no faith in him going forwards, hope I'm wrong but I grit my teeth every time someone runs at him or in behind him.
Nice lad, and obviously a model professional though which is great to see. Just needs more pace which unfortunately you can not coach.
