Harry Maguire.

Spurs our chance to put things right, says Maguire

Harry Maguire is already looking ahead to the visit of Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night, after Manchester United were held to a draw at home by Aston Villa.

The centre-back believes an encounter against Spurs provides the perfect opportunity for the Reds to bounce back in the Premier League.

“Yeah, it’s perfect,” Maguire, who captained United for the third consecutive league game, told us on Sunday.

“When you don’t win any football match you want a game as soon as possible to put things right and there’s no better way than to play Tottenham here at Old Trafford.”

United came from behind to establish a lead for the second week in a row after Tom Heaton’s own goal and Victor Lindelof’s header, but, as at Bramall Lane seven days ago, the Reds were ultimately pegged back and forced to settle for a point.

Despite the disappointing result, the team were cheered on by the superb Old Trafford support and that is something Maguire was keen to point out after the final whistle.

“The fans were brilliant,” added the 26-year-old.

“Even when we were losing the game, they sang loud and proud, and managed to get us into a good position, into a winning position.

“Obviously, on Wednesday, I know they’ll be right behind us and I hope we can get the result for them.”
