“I would say that sometimes this year, as a team, we probably let ourselves go by being a little too incoherent. Not just for a full game, but during matches.

United kicked off the campaign with a 4-0 win against Chelsea in August, but have won just eight of 15 league games at Old Trafford, losing points to Crystal Palace, Burnley, Aston Villa and Wolves on their own patch . They also lost to Bournemouth, Newcastle, West Ham and Watford this quarter.

“There were times when we were so good at the games, then we got out of it a bit and got punished.

“We have to be mentally strong. We are a young group but we don’t really want to use it as an excuse.

“We want to be young but play mature. This is where we have really picked up in recent weeks. “

“I joined this club because I want to win trophies and want to get silver,” said Maguire.

“When I think back to my time at Manchester United, I want to make sure I have trophies in this cabinet. “

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team is in fifth place with nine games left – three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
