Woeful Harry Maguire defending spotted in new footage from Man Utd loss

Harry Maguire's lack of awareness for Leicester City's deciding goal against Manchester United has been picked up by Twitter users – but many are blaming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The England defender missed the latest international window having picked up a calf injury during United's Old Trafford defeat against Aston Villa back in September.

Having trained just once with the team beforehand, Maguire started and had one of the most difficult games of his Red Devils career as they slipped to defeat.

After giving the ball away for Youri Tielemans' equalising goal, Maguire wasn't able to find his feet and was left standing still by an opportunistic Patson Daka for the fourth.

Maguire, marking the back post, failed to react from a flick-on and stood still as the Zambia international took advantage to grab his first ever Premier League goal.

That came after Jamie Vardy had added a third after Marcus Rashford canceled out Caglar Soyuncu's first of the campaign on his first appearance of the season.

One Twitter user wrote: "Rumour has it Harry Maguire is still looking for Daka."

With a second saying: "I still haven't got over Harry Maguire watching Daka walk past him to tap the ball in from 2 yards out."

A third continued: "Harry Maguire was standing still when Patson Daka scored a goal right behind him."

With a fourth writing: "I can’t, for the life of me, understand how Harry Maguire just let Daka score like that??"

Solskjaer said of the decision before the game: "It was a difficult decision because he has not trained a lot. He did not feel any reaction so we decided to go with him."

After Maguire said of his fitness earlier in the week: “Yeah it's getting there.

“I still haven't trained yet with the squad, but I am getting better, I am progressing as I should be.

"It is obviously a frustrating injury for me to get, but I am progressing and I will be back on the pitch soon.”
