Maguire and Co kept a clean sheet as United beat City 2-0 on Sunday to end their rival's 21-match winning streak.
But one of the main takeaways from the Reds' brilliant derby day victory was that of Maguire being vocal at the back.
It's claimed that the England international is not vocal enough and should not be United captain.
However, he made a mockery of that suggestion as showed in the clip below of him during the dying stages of City vs. United.
Maguire can be seen pleading with the linesman, shouting: "Offside, come from the shot," as the visitors thwart a late onslaught from the hosts.

Needless to say, United fans on social media backed their man and defended his status as club captain.
One tweeted: "Harry Maguire is probably one of the most vocal players on the pitch but FT will have you believe he's not a leader! Get to f**k man!!"
A second said: "Some on here who can't even raise there voice this high are the ones who say Maguire is not vocal. Joke."
A third added: "The absolute worst take going around the football community for the past few months has to be Maguire not being a leader or vocal."
United returned to second place in the table following their big win at the Etihad, moving up above Leicester City.
They host AC Milan in the Europa League next before resuming their league campaign at home to West Ham on Sunday.
