Harry Maguire wants Manchester United to change their habit of falling behind and then start collecting points. He believes they are just making life difficult for themselves.

Manchester United

have made new records and stats. They won eight successive games in the English top-flight collected which is a new record for the club.

They also took maximum points from four consecutive matches on the road in which they have fallen behind. They are the first team, who was able to do that.

On the other hand,

believes that Manchester United have been making life difficult for themselves. He said that while he was not aware of those records and stats.

“Well, I didn't know that,” Maguire said.

“I think it says we need to start scoring the first goal to give us a bit of help! It's a strange stat to hear.

“I actually don’t think we are starting games badly. Everton, we started the game really well. [Against Southampton], we started really well.

“We are conceding bad goals at bad moments, maybe, but we are showing great resilience, spirit, and character, which is something this squad has in abundance.

“We work tirelessly on the training pitch, we want to do so well for this club, we want to be a success, we want to win trophies and that is what it's about at this club. So, when we don't do that, we need to drive for more. It comes from hunger and spirit.

“It's a strange stat, but it does show great character.”

Manchester United’s next Champions League match is against

Paris Saint-Germain

on Wednesday. Then, they are going to face

West Ham
