Man Utd fans turn on "plank" Maguire and think McTominay is better in defence

Manchester United fans have ripped into Harry Maguire after watching their side fall 2-0 behind to Atalanta.

The Italians piled more pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with an excellent first-half performance.

And Maguire, who looked unfit in his side's defeat to Leicester on Saturday, was again at fault for the second goal.

The captain failed to win the ball as Merih Demiral rose high to silence the Old Trafford crowd, before Marcus Rashford made it 2-1.

It means United could lose yet another game in Group F and fans were quick to point the finger at the England and ex-Leicester man.

One wrote: "What is Maguire doing? Useless plank, here we go, Ole at the wheel. What a joke, no plan, shambles of a team."

Another fumed: "Lindelof is easily United's best centre back. Maguire is awful."

One even claimed midfielder, Scott McTominay, was better in the position than Maguire on current form.

They wrote: "McTominay is better at centre-back than Maguire."

Solskjaer's side fell behind to goals from Mario Pašalić and Demiral as a stunned Old Trafford support watched on in despair.

Paul Pogba was dropped for the clash, with many fans believing this was linked to his scathing comments following the defeat to Leicester.

United legend Paul Scholes and fellow BT pundit Peter Crouch believe Solskjaer can no longer trust the Frenchman.

Scholes said: "Peter’s hit the nail on the head, I don't think Ole can trust him.

"He’s tried to trust him, he's given him loads of chances and he really wants to but he’s seen the lack of discipline Pogba has in that position and could cost them dearly.

"Lack of trust in a player is not good but he’s got to get over it."

Crouch has said: "It’s obvious the manager can't trust him. I think he’d rather play Liverpool because they’re better when they're counter attacking.

"The lack of trust in Pogba is evident he’s gone with Fred and Mctominay because he can trust them and they are disciplined."
