Maguire insists Man Utd defending has improved

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire insists their defending has improved since the last international break.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were beaten by Crystal Palace at Old Trafford before conceding six in the home defeat to Tottenham.

But Maguire says since the Spurs game, the defence has been "really good" despite being beaten by Arsenal on Sunday.

"[Against] Palace, we were too open," said Maguire.

"[Against] Tottenham, we let ourselves go and were not good enough.

"Since the international break, we have been really good, conceding two own goals and a soft penalty."
