Harry Maguire put in a stellar performance, both with and without the ball, in Manchester United's 1-0 win over Fulham on Saturday. The English defender was a rock at the back, leading the defence and making crucial interceptions. He also showed great composure on the ball, playing progressive passes and helping to build attacks from the back.
Maguire's performance was all the more impressive given that he suffered a concussion in the first half. However, he bravely stayed on the pitch and continued to lead the defence. His determination and leadership were key to United keeping a clean sheet and securing a vital victory.
Manager Erik ten Hag was full of praise for Maguire after the game, saying: "He had a great game with and without the ball. Very good performance. He showed leadership. Very happy with Harry's performance."
Maguire's comeback into the starting XI this season has been remarkable. He has produced brilliant defensive displays one after the other, and if he keeps this up, he could just re-establish himself as one of Ten Hag's first-choice centre-backs.
In a difficult season for United, Maguire's form has been a beacon of hope. He has shown that he is still a valuable player for the club, and his performance against Fulham was a reminder of his quality.
