Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire has revealed that his team would’ve lost the game to Newcastle if not for the timely intervention of two Manchester United players.
He gave credit to Edinson Cavani and Jadon Sancho following the Red Devils’ Premier League 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on Monday night.
Cavani and Sancho came off the bench and changed the tempo of the game at St. James’ Park after replacing Mason Greenwood and Fred.
Man United drew with Newcastle following goals from Allan Saint-Maximin and Cavani.
“[Cavani] He’s come on and made a big impact and I think you have seen in the first 30 minutes of the second half especially, it was probably our best spell in the game,” Maguire was quoted by Man United’s official website as saying after the game.
“Credit to them [Sancho and Cavani] for making that change in tempo and intensity.”
He added, “A point, in the end, is a fair result, but it’s a result that we are disappointed with.
“The Burnley game and the Wolves game are coming up thick and fast and we have got to play better than we have done tonight to make sure we get three points.”
Ralf Rangnick’s side will now tackle Burnley in their next Premier League tie on Thursday.
