Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire, has explained how their loss to Tottenham Hotspur has kickstarted their season.
The Red Devils were rampant in their UEFA Champions League outing on Wednesday night, smashing last season’s semi-finalists, RB Leipzig, 5-0 at Old Trafford.
A number of the goals came late on, but it was a deserved win with United being solid in defence, and clinical upfront.
“We had a bad start to the season, we knew that, but we’ve come back and worked on it. We’ve had a good reaction,” the United captain told MUTV.
“After Tottenham we were all devastated. We were three games into the season and it felt like we were in a big crisis. It was quite a strange feeling but we don’t expect to lose games at Old Trafford like we did.
“The first three games we conceded far too many chances, so as a defensive unit we knew we had to improve and be more solid. Since the international break we’ve gone back to not conceding chances like we weren’t last season.
“We’ve gone back to that solid base. It’s been really important to give the front lads the opportunity to score, if they score one, two or three goals it should end up in a win. We’re doing that at the moment.”
