Life at Old Trafford couldn’t have started any better for the £80 million defender who won the Premier League man of the match award in his very first league game for his new club.
Maguire was the leading personnel in United’s defensive unit that helped the side record a 4-0 victory against Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.
Match statistics showed that the 1.94m tall defender completed 28 of his 33 attempted passes, made 7 interceptions (most in the game), 4 clearances (most in the game), 1 block and committed no foul.
A very neat and excellent shift, the English defender put in to help United earn their very first clean sheet since February in all competitions (Spanning 16 games).
The United’s new number 5 had this to say after the game with quotes from Skyports –
