Former Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has admitted he ‘should’ve brought Adama Traore down’ to stop Fulham’s winner on Saturday.

The Red Devils suffered a late, late defeat to the Cottagers at Old Trafford, with Alex Iwobi burying a 97th minute winner to seal a 2-1 victory.

OwoSports.com.ng sourced from Man United’s YouTube channel after the game, the England international said: “Definitely, I mean they’re bringing a player on with fresh legs. He’s pretty lucky with how the ball falls to him, we know what he’s good at.

“I was on a booking myself so in hindsight again maybe I should’ve just brought him down, but then you miss next week.
“It’s easy to say now but yeah, it’s disappointing to lose the game.

“The lads gave everything, the reaction when we went a goal down was brilliant but maybe we should’ve started a bit faster in the first half and the second half maybe.”

Maguire appeared to be the hero of the afternoon heading into added time after cancelling out Calvin Bassey’s opener with his 89th minute effort.

But just eight minutes later, Maguire headed what proved to be a fatal ball straight into Fulham substitute Traore’s path.
The winger then stormed from inside of his own half, past a chasing Maguire and all the way to the edge of Man United’s box.
