Harry Maguire has lamented the slow start Manchester United had in the goalless draw against West Brom at the Hawthorns.

United didn’t seem to be quite in it, and went down to an early goal from the hosts, before fighting back to get a draw late in the first period.

And according to Maguire, the poor start costed United, as the captain maintained we can still win the Premier League title, despite the setback.

He told Sky Sports, “We are still in the title race. Of course we are. We have to go again and win the next one and then the next one.

“We created a lot of chances – enough to win the game. It was tough for ourselves with the goal we conceded – for us it was a foul. We played the game in their half.

“We can do more and improve but it’s disappointing. It was a tough job against a team that defends deep. In the second half we played with a great tempo.”
