Not UTD related as such but Leicester CB Maguire is quickly becoming a very good CB. He could not have done any better against chelski and kept Morata in his pocket pretty much.

One to look at probably? In the future as a CS replacement.

Every time I’ve watched him I think he’s very average. Very big and cumbersome, positiobally poor, has heart that’s about it for me.

Was excellent today.

Apart from the dive, which he should have stayed up and gone for goal, Mahrez was class. Went round players like they weren't there, and put a few on a plate for the forwards. MOTM for me him.

Good player - I saw him Old Trafford I think twice last season and looked good in a bad side.

Was maguire good? or did N'Didi make him look good? like Matic makes our cb's look good like, Fernandinho makes city's look. average, let's be honest there are a handful of good cb's in the premiership 2 of them play for spurs in Alderwiereld and Vertonghen we have one. when he's fit in Bailly, Holgate looks very good. liked him when he managed to over come what he thought was something inexcusable in the Mersey side derby to put in a great second half (BTW not saying Firmino did anything i'm saying Holgate believed he did at that point but let's not get into that too much) . Also Christensen is very good and David Luiz works in a 5 man defence but i feel defenders are getting way too much credit when they are so covered for in modern systems especially Smalling and to a degree Rojo and Jones. Sounds like a rant but i do think defenders are being able to scrape by now the best example being John Stones.

At a time when it seems popular to have defenders who pass out from the back, take chances but have the confidence to move with the ball. Harry Maguire is a classic old style defender, he defends, ruggedly. It is hard to get past him, he plays physically, strongly, positively.

Maguire commits physically to the role, but the question in my mind is whether he can cope with a tricky pacy forward one on one who runs into space when your team is pushing forward. Has potential but is not Rio, yet is a defender you would want behind you on the pitch, no compromises.

Red man you say maguire is no ‘rio’ when it comes to defending.

Who is?

He was very good for Hull and I wish we’d signed him last summer. He will be better than Smalling, Rojo, Bailly and Jones.

Burnley have a good defender there in tarkowski. spelling.
Anytime I've seen him play he can defend.

If we want a good old fashioned defender who just likes to defend and is good at it then my choice would be Lewis dunk from Brighton, could work well with bailly.
