Manchester United: Fans go in on Harry Maguire after Watford defeat

Manchester United: Fans go in on Harry Maguire after Watford defeat - Manchester United

Speaking to Sky Sports via the Manchester Evening News [16:23], Manchester United defender Harry Maguire pinpointed the reasons for his side’s 2-0 loss to Premier League bottom side Watford on Sunday afternoon, with supporters refusing to hold back their opinions on the Red Devils’ record defensive signing. 

Maguire, who spurned a huge chance to gain a goal back for his side during the defeat, spoke candidly after the game over potential reasons why they lost – hinting that the game ‘was there to be won’ in the first half and that they need to do better against ‘lower opposition sides’.

Ismaila Sarr gave the Hornets an unlikely lead after ‘keeper David de Gea fumbled his goal-bound shot before Troy Deeney doubled the hosts’ lead with a composed spot kick.

United had chances to potentially salvage something, with stars Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay and Maguire all failing to convert decent opportunities – but it was ultimately not enough to continue their previous unbeaten streak.

As a result, supporters have hammered Maguire on social media. One fan dubbed him as ‘Phil Jones 2.0’, while another has called for Chris Smalling to return and replace him.
