Harry Maguire has seen his fortune take a wrong turn at Manchester United. The England defender captained United starting in 2020. However, recently, Erik ten Hag removed him as captain and gave the armband to Bruno Fernandes. Moreover, the 30-year-old has been relegated to the bench after falling out of favor in the squad.

However, the defender has managed to force a turnaround in his situation. The player has managed to earn a start in 3 of his last 6 games. Moreover, his performance against Sheffield United on Saturday earned him the Man-of-the-match award. Subsequently, Football fans and Pundits have taken the news as a pleasant surprise. Maguire also enjoyed a good International break, seeing off Italy 3 goals to one.

Manchester United were unable to keep a clean sheet against Sheffield. However, two goals, from Diogo Dalot and Scott McTominay were enough to earn his side the three points. Scott McTominay’s handball inside the box gave the home side a fighting chance.

However, Dalot’s screamer sealed the deal for the visitors. Fans were thrilled after the win. Moreover, Maguire’s MOTM was received with much praise by fans.
