Manchester United have put to display a great performance last night, securing a solid 3-0 victory against Sheffield United at Old Trafford, as Anthony Martial stole the spotlight with a hattrick.
The widely anticipated fixture asserted that the Mancunians haven’t lost their touch whatsoever, after sparking a hint of revival before the season got suspended because of the pandemic.
One of the most hilarious aspects of the game which got wide attention was how Harry Maguire berated his teammate, Luke Shaw, when he struggled with the ball amidst the match. The 24-year-old wasn’t up to his usual standards, showing difficulty in concentrating at crucial moments.
Consequently, Maguire couldn’t tolerate it at one point when the left-back’s lack of focus virtually resulted in a loss of possession, as the skipper screamed at his teammate to “f***ing switch on.”
The game was played behind closed doors, featuring no crowd cheers, hence making the phrase particularly audible over the mics. Subsequently, the supporters have started spreading it across the globe over social media, celebrating the fact that their team certainly has a commanding leader.

Although the England international hasn’t quite risen up to the levels of a few of his predecessors at Old Trafford, it’s evident for a long time now that the star is holding on to the armband well, playing his part out efficiently.
The awareness that he is in a position to reprimand the players who are struggling to keep up, while doing so, portrays his conviction in reviving the impaired reputation of the Red Devils.
