Ten Hag has Harry Maguire plan United fans would love against Liverpool


Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag is set to bench Harry Maguire when the Red Devils face Liverpool next week

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is reportedly set to 'drop' Harry Maguire for the visit of Liverpool on Monday.

Maguire has come under intense scrutiny within the last year for below-par performances which led to the club recording their lowest-ever Premier League points tally last season. The former Leicester City defender retained the backing of new manager Ten Hag upon his arrival, however, having decided to keep the England international as the skipper of the side.

The Manchester United captain was booed by his own supporters during the club's recent pre-season tour and, along with the rest of his team-mates, has done little to ally fears of his quality after defeats to both Brighton and Brentford in the opening two matches of the season.

Change could be on the way when the Red Devils take as the club consider taking the 29-year-old out of the firing line. The Manchester Evening News have claimed Ten Hag is debating recalling Raphael Varane to the starting-eleven to partner new signing Lisandro Martinez.

The report adds that dressing room sources have stated United players feel Ten Hag's approach does not 'suit their skill set' and a more 'pragmatic' approach is the preferred option as Jurgen Klopp's side prepare for their trip to Old Trafford. Maguire was named in both starting-elevens against Liverpool last season, part of a defensive unit that conceded nine goals in the two league meetings.
