Harry Maguire Mocked For Marking His Own Teammate For Southampton Equaliser

Harry Maguire Mocked For Marking His Own Teammate For Southampton Equaliser

Harry Maguire had to endure a lot of jibes on social media after fans mocked the Manchester United defender for his part in Southampton's equaliser on Monday.

United had the chance to go third in the Premier League with a win over Ralph Hassenhutl's team last night but blew it as Michael Obafemi scored a 96th minute goal to equalise.

Defending for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team has been an issue for most of the season and the equaliser put it under scrutiny again, with Maguire taking some pelters on Twitter.

United signed Maguire for a world record £80 million from Leicester City last summer and, whilst there's no doubt he has improved Solskjaer's side, he has made some high profile errors.

There were several factors at fault for the equaliser last night, with Paul Scholes laying the blame at Victor Lindelof's feet, but the Maguire incident doesn't look great.

One fan explained how United's zonal marking system absolved the former Hull City defender of any blame in the goal.

The injury time equaliser rounded off a bad day for Solskjaer's side, after what had been a good weekend for them without playing.

Manchester City having their UEFA ban overturned left them knowing only a top four finish will be good enough for the Champions League and then the draw prevented them finishing the day in third.

United still know that winning their final three games of the season will guarantee them a spot in the top four, as they play Leicester on the final day.

Before then they play Crystal Palace on Thursday and West Ham next week. Chelsea face Norwich on Tuesday followed by Liverpool and a final day game with Wolves and Leicester face Sheffield United and Spurs before their last day show down.

Who will finish in the top four? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
