Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has expressed his excitement over the club’s return to winning ways after we beat Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The United defender was delighted with the way the team responded in the wake of our recent defeats to Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir.

Speaking to BT Sport shortly after the final whistle, Maguire said: “We knew we had to get three points today.

“It’s early in the season and we don’t look at the table but the points we have accumulated isn’t good enough for this club.

“It’s important to bounce back from setbacks. We did it at Newcastle.

“We started the game really well but conceded a disappointing goal from a long, direct ball and we should have had better cover.

“We’ve been questioned but we know we don’t answer them in 90 minutes, we answer them day in, day out. The lads are working tirelessly for this club, everyone wants to improve and do better. The manager has to pull the lads off the training ground.

“I think we know the first goal in Istanbul can’t happen. We went away to Turkey and knew it would be tough game. It made it a frustrating night for us and the individuals knew in the changing room straight after and held their hands up and apologised.

“We are a good group who work really hard and we’re all in this together.”
