Harry Maguire Was At Fault For All FIVE Liverpool Goals, The Footage Left Us Speechless

Harry Maguire Was At Fault For All FIVE Liverpool Goals, The Footage Left Us Speechless

Harry Maguire was genuinely culpable in some capacity for every goal scored by Liverpool in Sunday's 5-0 thrashing.

The Manchester United skipper had an absolute nightmare at Old Trafford and was given a ZERO rating by the Manchester Evening News, who wrote that he "must be top of the Premier League assists chart for the amount of goals he has gifted the opposition".

And when you see his highlights - if you can even call them that - it's hard to disagree with the statements made.



Maguire, having looked all over the place against both Leicester City and Atalanta, made mistake after mistake in the rout.

For Naby Keita's opener, Maguire stepped out from defence and allowed Mo Salah the freedom of Stretford to make the pass and he and Luke Shaw did their best impression of the Chuckle brothers for the second scored by Diogo Jota.

He blocked a Salah shot in the build-up the third but then completely fell asleep, which led to the Egyptian nipping in front of him at the near post to bag in a tenth consecutive game.


There was still time for another mishap for the fourth goal just before half-time and he was then caught in no-mans land when Henderson put through Salah for his historic hat-trick.

It was an utter disasterclass from Maguire, United's captain and most expensive defender in Premier League history.

To his credit he gave a post-match interview with Sky Sports apologising for the defeat and talked about having "to look at each other then look at yourself in the mirror."


And after strong showings as Euro 2020 for England, Maguire must be well aware he's a liability at the moment.

Former United skipper Gary Neville came down hard on the 28-year-old and said he is "nowhere near it".

"Harry Maguire’s not doing anything, he’s not doing anything at the moment," Neville stated on Sky Sports.


"That interview was an interview of a man who’s nowhere near his best himself. I said last week he shouldn’t have played, he’s nowhere near it out there.

"He’s got to get himself fit and get his own performance right."

United have Spurs and Manchester City in their next two Premier League games but under pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could well be gone by the time the next fixture comes around if reports are to believed.

It's said the club are "considering" sacking the Norwegian after the Liverpool humiliation.
