Manchester United captain Harry Maguire says players let Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer down with their performance following 5-0 defeat to Liverpool. 

United marked the fourth consecutive match without a win in the Premier League as they were inflected a heavy defeat at home. The result piled pressure on Solskjaer with fans calling for the Norwegian to be sacked having dropped from first on the log to seventh.

Maguire described the defeat as embarrassing but is positive the Red Devils will make amends when they travel to face Tottenham on Saturday.

“It’s been tough, it’s been disappointing,” Maguire told Sky Sports.

“When you look back at the result and the performance it was embarrassing. Nowhere near good enough for this club. It’s been a tough week. I’m not going to say we’ve moved on easily.”

“It’s one of the lowest I’m sure all the players have felt in their career. You go home and you don’t sleep much, you’ve got thoughts running through your head. ‘If only I did this or this’. If I’m being honest I went home and I just looked at myself and what I can do better and take full responsibility on my shoulders.”


“I hope every player in the dressing room is looking at themselves, taking full responsibility on their shoulders and not pointing the finger and blaming anyone else. You look at yourself first and foremost when you have a result like this and a period like this.”

Letting OGS down

“We let the manager down against Liverpool. We let the fans down, the club down, us as players. So we have to take huge responsibility for that. Do we owe him a performance? Of course, we do.”

Spurs and United are separated by a single point, 15 and 14 respectively.
