Oh dear. One of the worst home performance in Manchester United's history.

But how did Harry Maguire play?

📷 Harry Maguire: Match Snapshot

It's difficult to stress how bad this performance was from Manchester United, and while Maguire sometimes bears the brunt of the criticism, this truly was one of his worst displays in Red.

His dreadful header, not long after United had gone ahead from the penalty spot, allowed Tanguy N'Dombele to equalise directly from his mistake, while it was his foul - and being too slow to recover - that allowed Harry Kane to make a quick free-kick in order to allow Son to run through and score.

And for the fourth goal, Tottenham are given too much time to cut the ball into Son's path to score another straightforward goal.

Maguire's error that directly led to a goal, as well as his woeful pass completion - just 81% on 53 passes that helped contribute to a miserable display.

DECLINE

Maguire has had an uninspiring start to the new season, but even by his standards, he was woeful here and not helped out by the rest of his back four which recorded equally bad ratings. But his 4.1 FC Rating made him the worst player on the pitch.

Maguire: What Next?

Maguire received his fair share of unfair criticism but here his performance was not befitting of a Manchester United team.

No matter what the make-up of the back four, United are unable to keep a clean sheet and it's difficult to know where Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer go next.
