Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire has blamed himself and teammates for failing to see out our lead in our match against Southampton on Monday night.

United relinquished the lead in the match in the 96th minute, at a time when most fans were almost certain we had won the game and would climb to third on the league table, and Maguire believes we may have been too complacent, and poor in front of goal.

Speaking in his post-match reaction, the Englishman said: “Yeah we’re disappointed. We got control of the game, had numerous

“We weren’t at our best, there’s loads of areas we need to improve in, but we did enough to win the game and a set-play has killed us in the end.

“They’re a team with no pressure on them, coming to Old Trafford, no fans, playing for pride in the league but cant get relegated and cant get Europe.

”We knew they were going to press, they pressed like mad, jumped like mad and we didn’t handle it well enough in the first 20 minutes, gave them a soft goal.

“We got ourselves back into the game, where we wanted to be, but the second half was a bit of a slog.

“We wasn’t good enough on the ball, gave the ball away far too much, as a team, everyone in the team.

“We brought a bit of pressure onto ourselves but we felt like we did enough to win the game in the end and we should kill it off with a third goal.”
