Due to his impressive form in recent times, Manchester United defender Harry Maguire has been awarded the Player of the Month for November in the Premier League.
Early this morning (December 7), the Premier League organizers officially announced the recipient of the Player of the Month award for November. Accordingly, Manchester United’s defender, Harry Maguire, was named for this prestigious award.
To claim this accolade, Maguire defeated competitors including Jeremy Doku (Man City), Anthony Gordon (Newcastle), Thomas Kaminski (Luton Town), Raheem Sterling (Chelsea), and Marcus Tavernier (Bournemouth).
Earlier in the season, Harry Maguire was not favored by manager Erik Ten Hag. However, with Lisandro Martinez and Jonny Evans injured, and Raphael Varane not fitting the tactics, the duo of Maguire and Lindelof became a solid defensive shield in front of Andre Onana’s goal. In particular, the English defender was the most impressive.
Maguire’s professionalism, composure, and decisiveness have been key for Manchester United in various situations. Even without the captain’s armband, he still receives high trust from Ten Hag and his teammates.
In November, Maguire played a full 270 minutes in 3 Premier League matches for Manchester United. The 30-year-old defender helped the Red Devils keep clean sheets and defeat all three opponents, namely Fulham (1-0), Luton Town (1-0), and Everton (1-0). According to Sofascore, Maguire consistently belongs to the group of players with the highest ratings for the Red Devils.
During the summer, Maguire was on the brink of leaving Old Trafford after being stripped of the captaincy by Ten Hag, who gave it to Bruno Fernandes. However, the defender chose to stay at Manchester United, patiently waiting for the opportunity to prove his worth. Finally, the results have come for Maguire. He has been a regular starter since early October and consistently demonstrated his class.
Notably, this is the first time in Maguire’s career that he has received the Player of the Month award. This recognition will motivate Maguire to continue performing at an even higher level in the coming time. In the recent match against Chelsea, Maguire, along with McTominay, played impressively, helping Manchester United secure a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.
