United climbed up to sixth position in the Premier League with a hard-fought 1-0 win at home to Luton Town on Saturday afternoon. Victor Lindelof scored the only goal of the game just before the hour-mark, rifling home after the ball fell to him in the box following a set-piece.
It was a second consecutive 1-0 league win for Erik ten Hag&aposs side, following last weekend&aposs late victory at Fulham. But neither performance saw United at their scintillating best and Maguire is not getting carried away with results.
“We&aposve won the game from probably a second phase of a set-play, so they&aposre important,” Maguire told MUTV. “I think, this year, we&aposve improved on them because, in my time at this club, we haven&apost been good enough at attacking set-plays.
“We can improve a lot more, for sure. We had a slow start to the season, but I think our form is slightly turning around.
“We&aposve got a big game in the Champions League coming up at Galatasaray. But we&aposve got to play like we did in Copenhagen and in the Premier League, the next game, Everton, another tough game, physical game, and we&aposve got to make sure we&aposre ready.”
Defenders have been United&aposs best attackers this season, with Lindelof the fourth to walk off the pitch as their match-winner. Ten Hag&aposs forwards are misfiring in front of goal, with Marcus Rashford operating short of his best and Rasmus Hojlund yet to score in the Premier League.
Maguire was one of those four match-winners, having headed home from close range against FC Copenhagen last month. And the 30-year-old is enjoying being able to contribute further forward.
