Harry Maguire has been a beast for Manchester United for the better part of the ongoing season.

The centre back gets little credit for his work, and is often maligned by opposition fans, but stats show he’s right up there with the best in the business.

According to StatmanDave on Twitter, Maguire (74) has won more aerial duels than any other defender in England this season.

He has also made more interceptions (37) and taken more shots at goal (24) than any of his colleagues.

However, the Englishman is number two in passes made into the final 1/3 (81), and third when it comes to accurate long passes (78).
