Harry Maguire’s combat ability at MU was recognized, as he had just shown in the victory over Everton. MU captain Maguire had a stellar match at Goodison Park last season, yielding a 1-1 draw. This time he played the same way when he helped “Red Devils” win 3-1 convincingly.
So, it is not surprising that Maguire is ranked highly when compared to other Premier League defenders thanks to its ability to win in aerial battles, even against higher opponents. England international topped the dogfighting charts with an 88.2% win rate, the same as Chelsea midfielder Kurt Zouma.
These two defenders outperformed City’s rookie Ruben Dias, Burnley’s James Tarkowski, and West Brom’s Semi Ajayi. The striker has won 30 air disputes in the Premier League 2020/21, ranked 8th in number, but MU currently plays less than most opponents.
Maguire has the highest win rate in the Premier League
In the 2019/20 season, this figure is 193, 100 more than the last campaign with Leicester City. Maguire’s current win rate is much higher than in any previous season and it will be difficult to maintain such a high success rate.
However, Maguire made seven rounds with a header for MU on Saturday to repel Everton, although still far from the unusual 17 in last season’s match also at Goodison Park.
It will be interesting to see if Maguire can continue to maintain the rate until the end of the season. However, surely MU fans are more assured with their ability to block entry balls. penalty area.
