Maguire reveals the truth about his duel with Everton goalkeeper Pickford

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has admitted he pushed Jordan Pickford first before the Everton goalkeeper kicked him in a duel between them.

While Pickford escaped punishment after fouling Maguire on Saturday, United defender concedes he was the one who started the incident.

Speaking to BT Sport after the 3-1 win at Everton, Harry Maguire said: “If I’m being honest, I pushed Jordan Pickford.

“So I think it should’ve been a foul for Jordan. He kicked me but it wasn’t a nasty challenge.

“Maybe it was a foul from me in the first place. I don’t think it was a penalty but thankfully we went to have 3 points.”
