Wed 20 October 2021 | 22:22

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire insists the Red Devils deserved the win in the end after they completed a fantastic comeback against Atalanta on Wednesday night to win the game 3-2.

Manchester United

came from 2-0 down at halftime to stage a remarkable second-half comeback to ease pressure on manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

with a 3-2 victory over

Atalanta

on a dramatic Champions League night at Old Trafford thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's late header.

Atalanta were leading 2-0 at Old Trafford before the break thanks to goals from Mario Pasalic and Merih Demiral.

However, Manchester United poured all their resources forward, including

Paul Pogba

and

Jadon Sancho

off the bench, to turn it around.

“The first half we conceded two bad goals. Two big moments in the game,”

Maguire

told

BT

Sport

.

“For the first they caught us out and then the second it is a set-play that we shouldn’t be conceding.

“We created a lot of chances in the first half so we knew at half-time that the next goal would be crucial. We got the goals we needed and deserved and I think we deserved the win in the end. Yes, we made it difficult but it is a tremendous victory in the end.”

Maguire’s goal came after Remo Freuler failed to cut out the Bruno Fernandes cross and it fell for him.

“It is normally with my head. I have not managed to put one away. It is my first goal for the season and the Champions League. A proud moment with my family here.

“We were two goals down and we need to sharpen up with that. But we had plenty of chances. I think Marcus [Rashford] had two one-on-ones in the first half.

“We are working hard to be more solid but it is about winning and the last three or four games we have conceded too many set-pieces. It is fine margins but we need to do better. We showed great togetherness.

“We were clapped off at half-time by some of these fans and they gave us the belief we needed.”
