Manchester United fans were left frustrated by club captain Harry Maguire’s sub-par performance in their 4-2 defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League.
Harry Maguire had a poor game against his former side Leicester City. The 28-year-old Manchester United skipper was directly at fault for the Foxes’ equalizer in the first half when he lost the ball cheaply to Kelechi Iheanacho who squared it to Youri Tielemans for the goal.
Manchester United fans took to Twitter to voice their disapproval of Harry Maguire’s performance, with many questioning whether he is the right personnel to be the club’s captain. Here are some of the best tweets from Manchester United fans:
It is worth noting that Harry Maguire missed the last two games for Manchester United after sustaining a calf injury. The 28-year-old defender was rumored to be out of contention for the game against Leicester City but featured for full 90 minutes instead.
The defeat against Leicester City was particularly worrying as none of Manchester United’s players seemed to have turned up for the fixture. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho and Maguire, all had average games compared to their lofty standards.
This below-par performance from Harry Maguire is a major cause of concern for Manchester United going forward as they are currently without new-signing Raphael Varane. The Red Devils face Atalanta in the Champions League next before taking on Liverpool in the Premier League.
Manchester United have lost ground in the title race
Following a run of three matches without a win, Manchester United have lost valuable ground in the race for the Premier League title.
The Red Devils have picked up just one point from their last three league matches. This run includes defeats at the hands of Aston Villa and Leicester City.
As things stand, Manchester United are fifth in the Premier League table, five points behind league leaders Chelsea. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are currently behind Brighton and Hove Albion and could be behind Everton and Tottenham Hotspur if they win their respective games on Sunday.
Manchester United do possess a squad capable of turning their fortunes around in the next couple of fixtures. However, the Red Devils will face all five remaining teams from the coveted Premier League top s in the coming weeks.
