Maguire has endured a frustrating start to the season on a personal level, with the defender coming under scrutiny. The Englishman has been part of a United backline that has shipped three goals against Crystal Palace, two against Brighton and six against Tottenham Hotspur in their first three Premier League matches.
In the Red Devils’ 6-1 humbling by Tottenham at Old Trafford in their last game before the international break, Maguire delivered a terrible performance, making one error leading to a goal and also giving the ball away on 11 occasions, as per Sofascore.
The 27-year-old would have been looking to go away with England and put his club form behind him in the upcoming games against Belgium and Denmark in the UEFA Nations League. However, footage has now emerged on Twitter of the defender being spun by Alexander-Arnold in training before the Liverpool defender found the back of the net with a well-taken solo effort.
Many Manchester United fans were quick to point out that this sort of form is typical of what Maguire has been producing during the opening stages of the season.
