Harry Maguire was delighted with the defensive display as they drew 0-0 against Liverpool on Sunday.

Eric Bailly

has been the go-to option to play alongside

Manchester United


Harry Maguire

in most recent games.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to replace him with

Victor Lindelof

for the game against


on Sunday and it seems his decision paid off well as the Red Devils were able to draw 0-0.

Maguire was also delighted with the defensive display as he said:

“It was a big defensive display. Not just from the defenders and the goalkeeper, it was the midfielders, the forwards. They covered us and we looked solid. We didn't give them a big chance. It was a great defensive display.

“Victor has come back to the team in a big game with huge pressure and performed excellently. Credit to Vic, it shows the depth we've got at center-half now with Eric, who has been playing and doing really well.

“It's important, whoever plays, in the back four, knows the team, knows their responsibilities, and keep keeping clean sheets as that gives us the best chance of going on to win the games.”

United’s next clash is against Fulham on Wednesday.

He added:

“We wanted to win the game today but we didn’t, but we keep the momentum going of not losing, especially away from home.

“It's going to be a tough game [on Wednesday]. I've watched their recent games, Fulham, and they've got some great attacking players and they play nice football, so we know it's going to be tough.


 “Every game in the

Premier League

is tough but we need to go there with the right mentality to go and win the game. We need to make sure we prepare, recover, get back on the training pitch, and make sure we improve. As a group of players, we need to improve to be where we want to be.”
