MANCHESTER UNITED fans reckon Harry Maguire is finished after LEFT-BACK Luke Shaw started ahead of him in the centre of defence against Wolves.

Maguire enjoyed an impressive World Cup and was named in team of the tournament despite England’s quarter-final exit.

But his club form has been patchy for some time and he’s started just three Prem games all season.

He’s only been picked from the off just once since the 4-0 defeat at Brentford and even that came when Raphael Varane was injured.

Maguire did feature against Nottingham Forest after missing the Burnley Carabao Cup game through illness.

But Erik ten Hag left him on the bench at Molineux, opting to start Shaw alongside Varane despite naturally being a left-back.

Speaking about his decision ahead of the game, Ten Hag said: “That is one argument [recent illness for Maguire and Lindelof].

“The other is this back line did really well [against Forest].

“Also, tactical wise in this game against Wolves I think it fits very well.”

And the Old Trafford faithful have been reacting on social media to the Dutchman overlooking Maguire.


One said: “ETH will rather play Shaw as a CB than play Maguire. Man is finished.”

A second admitted: “Shaw over Maguire and Lindelof is all you need to know what Ten Hag thinks of them.”

A third chimed in with: “Luke Shaw starting at CB over a healthy Maguire is peak Ten Hag.”

A fourth said: “Funny how even Shaw is so much better than Maguire at CB hahahaha.”
