Harry Maguire heaps praise on two Manchester United players for recent performances

Manchester United skipper Harry Maguire has praised the contributions of Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka to the progress of Manchester United in recent times.

Both players have been brilliant for United, both defensively and offensively, with Wan-Bissaka scoring in the 9-0 thrashing of Southampton last week.

According to Maguire, both players have made a lot of improvements in the game, especially attacking-wise, where Shaw has particularly excelled this season.

In his own words to United’s official website, the United skipper said, “Luke [Shaw] and Aaron [Wan-Bissaka] have been excellent of late.

“They’ve really picked up their attacking game and started to fly forward and create chances which is really important for the team. “We know how big an influence full-backs in the modern day have on the attacking side of the game, as well as the defensive side. First and foremost, they’re defenders for us and I’ve got to say they’ve been brilliant on that side of things.

“They don’t get beaten one-v-one which is really important, they’re stopping crosses and they’ve been defending the back post really well.”

Maguire added, “As a back four we’re working hard together. I have big demands on my full-backs, I expect them to fly forward but I also expect them to fly back as well.

“Luke has been great and Aaron was great at Arsenal last weekend and it’s really important that they keep up this form to help the team.”
