Manchester United fans slam Harry Maguire following his display vs Arsenal
It’s pretty safe to say that Manchester United did not have the best of nights when they visited Arsenal at the Emirates on the first day of the new year.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men fell to Mikel Arteta’s resurgent troops and couldn’t keep up with the Gunners who snatched away all three points with a 2-0 display.
On the face of it, no single player is at fault – United struggled collectively to the point where Whoscored issued four different starters performance ratings below six.
But despite not being amongst that quartet, many of the fans slammed one player in particular – their captain on the night, Harry Maguire.
The centre-back was bashed for not being good enough but it seems that some of the fans believe he’s simply not worthy of being their team’s skipper in the first place…
Looking purely at the numbers, however, Maguire was still pretty decent and he was actually Man United’s third-best player on the night with a rating of 6.85 .
He also tallied two tackles , three interceptions and one clearance in the process but alas, it was seemingly not good enough for many of the fans, with one demanding the club send him back to Leicester. They also stated that he’s not worth the money Man United have spent on him and one fan even proclaimed Chris Smalling – currently on loan at Roma – is better than him.
