Maguire, however, believes United’s attack-line was wasteful in the opening exchanges of the match Man United defender Harry Maguire has slated the club’s style of play in attack for blame following their 1-0 embarrassing defeat against Bournemouth.
United arrived Vitality Stadium on Saturday, November 2, in buoyant mood as they came off on the back of three successive victories. However, the Cherries handed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were handed reality check, with the hosts earning a slim but vital victory at home. Josh King, a former Red Devils player, scored the solitary goal that separated the two sides with a well-taken goal on the stroke of half-time.
The visitors’ efforts to muster a comeback after the interval proved futile, with substitute Mason Greenwood string the post from close range before Scott McTominay unsuccessfully testing Aaron Ramsdal who was in goal for Bournemouth. But speaking after the match, Maguire decried United’s lack of incisiveness upfront, adding the attack-line missed clear goal-scoring chances.
