    CAPTAIN SPEAKS

    Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, about whether Manchester United silenced their critics, Harry Maguire said: “We’re some way towards that, but I wouldn’t say we’ve answered them.

    “We’ve put in terrible performances but we know we can do a lot better.

    “This club doesn’t deserve performances like we’ve put in at Old Trafford this year.

    “We’ve gone part-way towards answering our critics, but we know we can improve and we have to improve, but for sure we deserved the three points tonight.

    “When you play for this club and get beaten at home by Crystal Palace and thoroughly deserve to get beaten, then thoroughly deserve to get beaten by Tottenham, we had to ask questions of ourselves.

    “It’s a great group, we knew we had to bounce back.”

    SAVING THE BEST 'TILL LAST

    Fernandes may have had his penalty saved, but he put it right before the end of the night.
