Statistics from Fotmob highlight the British star’s role in the last match.
In a serious crisis, Manchester United found a ray of hope after a minimal victory over Fulham. The most praised star after the recent encounter was none other than Bruno Fernandes with the only goal in injury time.
However, besides that, the performance from former club captain – Harry Maguire was equally impressive.
Despite suffering an injury in the early stages of the match, the English midfielder still decided to stay on the field to continue playing.
Over 90 minutes, he won a stunning 10 duels won, 9 clearances. He had 75 touches with 49 passes and 6 successful long balls. He blocked two shots.
There was some criticism towards Maguire at the start of the campaign amid speculation that he turned down a summer move to West Ham United.
United wanted to recruit a marquee center-back after parting ways with their former captain, but their plans were hampered by his decision to stay.
Maguire was a regular on the bench in the early weeks, but he has now become a pivotal figure in the heart of the defense for manager Erik ten Hag.
The Dutchman has persisted with Maguire from the right center-back position despite Raphael Varane being available to play over the last two league games.
Maguire definitely rose up to the occasion at Craven Cottage and he has the opportunity to continue the good form during the midweek trip to face Copenhagen.
United face a must-win game against the Danish champions in the Champions League, having picked up only three points from as many group stage matches.
