Harry Maguire put in a man of the match display on his Manchester United debut against Chelsa,
The England international was a rock at the back and looked untroubled throughout the match alongside his new defensive partner Victor Lindelof.
It fills us with hope for the future with United keeping their first clean sheet in the Premier League for six months, which is why they were willing to make Maguire the world’s most expensive defender this summer following a transfer from Leicester City.
But here he is, already putting in man of the match displays and leading by example from the back.
Maguire’s stats, as listed in the tweet below, are impressive and outline that he had more clearances and interceptions than any player on the pitch. His passing success rate (86%) was decent and none of the Chelsea players managed to dribble past him.
• 7 clearances – most in match
• 4 interceptions – most in match
• 86% passing accuracy
• Dribbled past no times
