Harry Maguire was awarded the captaincy for Manchester United last night as the Red Devils took on Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League.
Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finish the season?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side narrowly edged past Partizan 1-0 thanks to a first-half penalty converted by Anthony Martial, though it was yet another unconvincing performance from United as their opponents were allowed to take 15 shots on goal, hitting the post once.
Harry Maguire will be pleased with his individual performance last night, however, keeping a clean sheet whilst captaining the side in European competition.
The former Leicester defender – who joined United for £80m in the summer – was awarded an overall rating of 7.21/10 from WhoScored after making a total of six clearances for his side – more than any other player on the pitch from either team.
Prior to kick-off last night, @utdxtra announced that United would be captaining the side against Partizan. Here’s how fans reacted to the news on Twitter…
