Harry Maguire Is "All Over The Place" And Shouldn't Play For England At The Euros

Harry Maguire has been "all over the place" for Manchester United this season and should not start for England at the European Championships.

Maguire regularly starts at the back for United alongside Victor Lindelof and he's helped keep nine clean sheets in the league this season.

However, Darren Bent believes Maguire doesn't have a place in the Three Lions defence this summer and would start John Stones alongside Tyrone Mings.

Agreeing with talkSPORT presenter Laura Woods about Stones' inclusion in the team, Bent said: "I'm gonna go with [Tyrone] Mings.

"He gives you that balance on the left hand side. I think this season as well in terms of consistency, he's been very good.

"I know people talk about Maguire but he's been all over the place at times defensively. Michael Keane is in with a shout, he's had a good season at Everton.

"But just for balance, I'm going to go with Mings."

Mings and Aston Villa are ninth in the table and it's a remarkable turnaround, considering they ensured survival on the final day of last season.

Meanwhile, Stones has reestablished himself in Manchester City's backline and has struck up a formidable partnership with Ruben Dias.

City have won their last 20 matches and it's seen Stones and Dias receive plaudits across the footballing world.

They've started 16 games together this season, keeping 12 clean sheets while also scoring more [five] than they've conceded [three].

"It's been outstanding," Trevor Sinclair said.

"It kind of reminds me of when Vidic and Rio were together - one of them would make a block and they'd high five each other.

"It just seems they've got that kind of relationship and chemistry where they respect each other.

"They look like they're a really good contrast of players; one of them wants to head the ball, Ruben Dias is a really good talker.

"It's there in black and white. It's great, he's had difficult times and been in the media for the wrong reasons, he's been dropped from the England squad but he seems to have got his life together and it's back together on the pitch.

"This is what we knew we [Man City] were buying. Everyone knew he had the potential to play like this and for me this is the best football he's been playing in his career."
