Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire, has made an honest confession following his side’s 4-2 win against Leeds United on Sunday. Maguire scored a corner for Man United’s opener at Elland Road – the first time the Red Devils would score from a corner in 139 attempts. Maguire was asked about the stat in his post-match press conference and the England defender admitted it’s an area of Man United’s game they need to quickly improve on. “I am embarrassed by the stat [nearly 140 corners without a goal],” Maguire said. “I am a big part of that set play routine, but as a team, we have been nowhere near good enough. “If we scored more from set pieces we would be higher up the table.” Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes, Fred and Anthony Elanga also scored for Man United against Leeds. “We needed to start the second half better, for sure,” Maguire added. “They came out right on top of us; their first goal is obviously really lucky and it got them right back in it and then they scored a good goal. “We had to fight back and stick together; we knew it was a tough place to come but we knew we had qualities and could hurt them. “We said at half time we needed to score more in the second half and we managed to do that.”
