The win over Villa is United’s third in a row in the Premier League, and means United closed the gap to five points between us and the fifth-placed side. Now that players are returning from injury, Maguire says our squad depth is a key plus, as we strive to climb the table.
“It’s a big squad and we know that we’ve got players on the bench who can come on and make the difference,” he said in another interview with Sky Sports.
“We had to dig deep in the second half, we were under pressure from a lot of set-plays and corners, causing problems. But I think we dug deep in the end and deserved the win.
“[We showed] great spirit, [and it was] great fight from the lads to come back into the game and [it’s] Scott with the match-winner again.”
