Manchester United captain Harry Maguire believes Manchester United were in control in the second half of our 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday evening.

“I think the majority of their chances came late in the first half when we were playing a back four and we couldn’t really get out to stop the crosses,” Maguire said.

“We couldn’t defend the box well enough with the number of bodies that they were throwing forward into the box.

“And then we’ve come out in the second half and I felt we looked controlled without the ball, without being a huge threat on the counter-attack.

“Obviously we could have done more on the ball but without the ball I felt they didn’t really create big opportunities.

“The first goal is unfortunate, the deflections and ricochets. I don’t know who it ends up going in off.

“The last goal is a mistake, which obviously happens in football, but it’s unfortunate again.

“In terms of the shape without the ball, I felt it was a lot better when we went to a back three slash back five. Obviously with the counter-attacks, we maybe could have done a little bit more.”
