(Video) Harry Maguire insists he doesn’t play badly in every game for Man Utd

Manchester United are set to take on Liverpool on Tuesday evening in a crucial fixture for Ralf Rangnick’s side, with United desperate to seal a place in next season’s Champions League.

United go into the game in poor form, despite their nervy 3-2 win over Norwich last weekend. Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a hat-trick in that game, will not feature at Anfield due to personal reasons.

As expected, captain Harry Maguire was named in the side and the 29-year-old has fired back at claims he plays poorly for United, whilst acknowledging that he has stood for some bad performances this season.

“This season I’ve had some bad games but I wouldn’t be playing every game for Manchester United, in the starting eleven, if I’ve been playing bad every game or not playing well enough,” Maguire told Sky Sports, via Football Daily.

“There’s a reason why both managers (Rangnick and Solskjaer) have put me in the starting eleven for every game, for what I bring to the team, what I bring to the starting eleven.

“But I do also understand that I’m the captain of this club, I cost a lot of money and when things aren’t going well and we’re conceding too many goals, I’m going to get criticised.”

The former Leicester man will be eager to put on a good performance at Liverpool tonight, having impressed at Anfield in recent meetings between the two sides on Merseyside.
