Great at defending today, but he's a step down from Martinez in progressing the play. Helps considerably with aerial bombardments and did well with the assist to Højlund. If anything you have to truly respect his professionalism and dedication to get back in the side - he's no Sancho for sure

The movement in that corner that ultimately end up in Hojlund's goal was top class, not sure if he was trying to go for goal or to give a second ball but the way he moved to win that ball was absolutely class.

Too be fair, Ould Harry looks like he'd be terrible at FIFA anyway, he might as well give it a go. Sancho more worried about his promos on FUT to worry about earning his keep.

Incredibly important for premier league play. Crucial defending on set pieces during the game and assisted with his lovely big head on the attacking set piece.

He's just not the guy for building up place and holding onto the ball under pressure. I think keeping him as 3rd/4th choice CB is a good idea for the squad. potentially starting him against away sides is intelligent management.

Martinez and Maguire is a decent combination; though I would make getting a top class defender who can play ball an absolute priority in the summer. Then Maguire is a very solid back up who can play with Martinez/mystery centre back if required.

Class performance defensively today. and Monster Mentality. Would buy him a pint if i saw him.

He's playing well but he forces our team to play completely differently with his lack of pace. Until we enough fast defenders that we can consistently play a high line week in week out we will be bullied by every team we play against in the EPL.

We spend too much time having teams run against us because we want to play high midfield and attack but have to leave a massive gap in between them and our last defenders.

At least two new CB and one new LB/RB in the summer please INEOS.

Fairly standard for that type of cross, get the ball back into the danger area. No chance he was going for goal.

Credit to him for carving out a purpose in this team.

I felt we needed to move him on in the summer and I think at the time that was the right thing for club and player, but Harry Maguire has impressed me. He's fought his way back into the team and put in some decent performances. He's never going to be Rio, Vidic or Stam, but very few are. He's still a useful player and has shown good mentality to come back and put in these performances. He's a good third choice CB in my opinion.

The only reason he works right now is because we are playing Ole-ball. I hope he gets sold in the summer. He should get more criticism for all his attacking headers always going above the post. Licha cant come back soon enoguh.

Made a number of errors over the last few weeks and unlike last season he hasn't been punished.

He’s been very fortunate in last few games, made big errors and not been punished, his form has been better but not improved as much as some thing. Awful today.

1 poor game and the knives are out already.. no surprise there :lol:
He's got one year left on his contract after this season. Hopefully the club can see what we all can and just get shot of him while he has some value.

One really poor pass from the free kick and then got booked by getting all square.

Two pretty impactful moments but all in all, I thought he did alright. Pressed high, tight and was constantly in the back of their striker to not let him turn. Didn't win the ball back but it's so important to stop them for holding the ball and turning.

I am not bothered about him as he himself knows we should be upgrading on him this summer once Varane leaves

Wish we sold him to West Ham in the summer and invested the fee into a young CB to learn from (and eventually replace) Varane.

Of course, however, that would’ve been too sensible.

I thought he was poor and him pushing up to enforce the press saw him get turned constantly which caused us problems, which we were lucky to survive. His problem isn't a lack of talent but rather a lack if bio-mechanics which mean that if he doesn't win the first challenge when going to press, then getting turned and being left hanging is a real possibility.

We did try to sell him but he didn't want to join them. I'm sure we even agreed a fee with West Ham.

Another poor Maguire performance was almost glossed over by his late goal. However, our loss means it should get the scrutiny it deserves. If we go into next season with Maguire anywhere near our starting XI it'll be a major problem. He's Europa League level at best.
