Manchester City defender, John Stones, has expressed confidence that Harry Maguire will come good for Manchester United soon, despite his struggles lately.

Maguire began the season in decent form, before sustaining an injury in the 1-0 loss to Aston Villa weeks ago.

Since his return, the centre back has struggled to replicate his early season form— attracting criticisms for his performances in some of our recent games, including the defeats to Leicester City, Liverpool and Manchester City.

However, Stones is adamant his England teammate is a strong character, and he will bounce back from all of it.

Speaking to talkSPORT, the City centre back noted, “Harry is an incredible person and a strong character so I have no doubt that he’ll come good at Manchester United and it’s not just him.

“I don’t want to say he’s not playing well because I actually think he’s doing so many things right, but sometimes it gets magnified and sometimes taken out of proportion.

“I’m not trying to pass the blame or anything, but as a character and as a person that I know, I believe he’ll be the incredible player that he is and be back to that very soon and he’s got that character and mentality to be back to where he was and I believe he will.”
