Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has reacted to the 2-0 victory over Villarreal that secured our qualification to the round of 16.

“It’s massive for our season,” said Maguire.

“The last couple of months have been nowhere near good enough and we needed to get a result for our season and our fans. We need to make sure that’s just the start and we push on.

“It was tough and edgy in the first half. It was important to stay in the game and I thought the lads who came off the bench really helped us push on and the second-half performance was really good.

“The emphasis was getting a result. Coming away from home in Europe you have to be solid.

“We got what we deserved in the end because of the chances we created.”
