Maguire: We need to be con­sis­tent to get in top four

Manchester Evening News - - UNITED -

HARRY Maguire be­lieves in­con­sis­tency has been United’s big­gest prob­lem this sea­son.

The Reds were back at their best over the week­end as goals from Mar­cus Rash­ford, An­thony Mar­tial and Ma­son Green­wood saw them thrash Nor­wich at Old Trafford.

Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer’s side were much im­proved in their per­for­mance on Satur­day af­ter­noon and pro­vided the per­fect re­sponse to a week which had seen them draw with Wolves be­fore los­ing to City.

Vic­tory lifted United up to fifth in the Pre­mier League and just five points be­hind Chelsea in the race for a top-four fin­ish this sea­son. Maguire knows a good run of re­sults could be cru­cial in se­cur­ing Cham­pi­ons League foot­ball this sea­son, but ac­knowl­edges that con­sis­tent pos­i­tive per­for­mances are vi­tal.

“Our prob­lem has been in­con­sis­tency,” he told re­porters af­ter vic­tory against Nor­wich.

“We have played two good games and one bad game and it has not been good enough in terms of that. We are not get­ting car­ried away. It was a good per­for­mance, clean sheet, win but we have to go again on Wed­nes­day and get an­other good re­sult. Like I said, if we put a few wins to­gether on the bounce we will have ev­ery chance (of a top-four fin­ish).”
