Manchester United


Harry Maguire

, insists that they will keep on ignoring their lead in the Premier League table as they will focus on playing each game

“one at a time”

. The Red Devils, who currently have 40 points out of 19 games, are happy to shut down criticism after being doubted for several years since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.

Maguire told



“We don’t speak about the table. We speak about the improvement.”

“Two years ago, you wouldn’t say that we would challenge at the top of the table, for sure. We as players believe that we can; we expect that we can. This club expects to be challenging for the best trophies.”

“It’s all about improvement, it’s all about improving each game, each training session. We need to improve on things.”

“It’s nice to have the points tally but there’s a long way to go and a long way for us to make sure we’re still there at the end of the season.”

“We don’t look at the table. It’s one game at a time. Another big game on Sunday and we’re looking forward to that now.”

Maguire later commented on their form as they head for their Sunday clash with


in the fourth round of

FA Cup

, adding:

“It shows a great mentality in the squad. We do believe that we can get three points from any position.”

“The first five minutes, we didn’t start well enough. It’s a poor goal to concede, it’s something we’ve worked on, as a back line we were all over the place. It’s unlike us and what we’ve been in recent weeks, so it’s something we need to work on. We’ll look at it, we’ll speak about it and we’ll improve, but the main part was the reaction.”

“The reaction from the lads, to put pressure on, to go after them, not feeling sorry for ourselves and [to] get that equaliser. We managed to do that, deservedly.”

“We started the second half so much better than we did in the first and I felt it was a matter of time until we scored that goal. Like you say, the last 10-15 minutes were a bit nervy. The boys managed to see it out very well.”
