Maguire starting line-up message sent to fans and Manchester United sensation Greenwood told to clean up his act
John O’Shea believes Harry Maguire will walk back into the Manchester United starting line-up, while Mason Greenwood has been sent a message.
United have been in the headlines alot over the past few weeks for the clubs poor defensive record that has cost the club serious points in the League, and Harry Maguire has looked nothing like the player he was last season.
United came away from the Parc des Princes with a 2-1 win over PSG thanks to a late Marcus Rashford goal, as boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer played five at the back and kept PSG’s much vaunted front three of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Angel Di Maria quiet for most of the night.
Captain Maguire was absent with an injury, but United still looked solid in defence without him, leading to some suggestions that he will have a hard time of it getting back into the starting line-up, especially after his start to the new season.
But former United defender O’Shea told Wednesday’s talkSPORT Breakfast: “That’s what Ole wants; he wants the tough decisions and he wants the competition for places.
“It will be a tough decision because whatever team you pick that goes away to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and gets a win.
“To be fair, I think Harry will come back in because he is the captain.
“You look at different teams and different systems up against Chelsea. They have plenty of competition now and plenty of games for the squad to be utilised.
“If he is fit he will be back because he’s the captain of the team.”
Meanwhile, Jamie O’Hara has warned Mason Greenwood to nip any poor behaviour in the bud now, or risk affecting his performances on the pitch.
Greenwood had a break-through season last year with the Red Devils and is easily regarded as one of the finest talents in the game, but he has started the season in poor form with his off-field antics causing real concern.

“It’s unprofessional, especially at a club like Manchester United,” he said on Thursday’s talkSPORT Breakfast.
“They’ll have a fine list and he’ll be getting fined, but that’s not the point.
“It’s a learning curve for him, he’s still 19, he’s a young lad and he’s going to make mistakes.
“But you have to do it, day-in, day-out; you have to be disciplined, and being late is sloppy, it’s unprofessional.
“He has to knock this on the head, because I think if you’re sloppy in the way you conduct yourself off the pitch, it will eventually start on the pitch.”
