Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag praised Manchester United captain Harry Maguire following his impressive performance in the 1-0 victory over West Ham on Sunday.

The centre-back made some vital interventions to help United secure three points in the Premier League encounter, including a late block that kept out a great opportunity for West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen and a strong tackle on Declan Rice.

Ten Hag told BBC Sport: “He was magnificent in protecting the box. He is a great player and a really good defender and we have seen how important he is for the squad.

“I am really happy for the team of course but also Harry Maguire as he came off the pitch with a clean sheet.”
