Statistics released for the game demonstrate their immense contributions to historic victory.
Maguire had 91% passing accuracy, had 79 total hits, played six aerial duels of which he won four, made five interceptions and made five clears.
Harry Maguire’s match in numbers against AC Milan:
Lindelof’s numbers were equally impressive. He had 93% passing accuracy, had 69 total hits, also made five interceptions and five clearances and made a vital block. He did not commit any fault in the match.
Victor Lindelöf’s match in numbers against AC Milan:
The couple seem to have gone from strength to strength lately and seem to be thriving with Dean Henderson behind them. The team have kept 8 clean sheets in their last 11 games, eight of which have played Henderson in goal.
Neither Lindelof nor Maguire are the loudest defenders and David de Gea, United’s usual number one, isn’t a talker either. Henderson’s constant shouting and organization may prove to be the missing link that can turn what seemed like average defense into excellent defense.
