- Manchester United captain and defender Harry Maguire continues to dig through rock bottom after another unconvincing display for the club
- Already a universal punchline for fans of the team and rivals, Maguire was partially to blame for a goal conceded against Burnley in a 1-1 draw
- The costly result got the trolls going with their meme game, absolutely ripping into him in another example of cyber bullying
Manchester United captain and defender Harry Maguire's stock continues to plunge after another disappointing display for the club.
The Red Devils were held 1-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor, missing the opportunity to consolidate their place in the Top Four. Paul Pogba opened the scoring for the visitors, before Jay Rodriguez equalised for the home side.
Sports Brief covered the encounter, and it would not be harsh to point out that Maguire was partially to blame for The Clarets' equaliser after more uninspired defending from him.

Social media was in no mood once again for the beleaguered Maguire and gave him a rollicking for his performance.
"The fact that Harry Maguire cost £80m should be investigated by the authorities."
"Since Harry Maguire stuck his fingers in his ears against Albania, he has seen a Man Utd manager sacked, the team knocked out of the FA Cup, and now 18 points behind the league leaders. That really showed the critics."
"Get that armband off Harry Maguire as well. He's going to make more costly errors like that shocking one tonight."
"Believe me when I say this. We will never be a successful football club so long as Harry Maguire is a starting centre back for this club."
"Can we all agree Harry Maguire is the worst Manchester United signing ever"
"In case you have forgotten, Harry Maguire is football's most expensive defender. £80m waste!"
Manchester United’s top four hopes dented after frustrating 1-1 draw vs Burnley at Turf Moor
Manchester United’s hopes for a top-four finish took a stumble as they were frustrated to a 1-1 draw by bottom-side Burnley at Turf Moor on Tuesday, February 8.
Sports Brief reported that Paul Pogba’s first-half goal was cancelled out by Jay Rodriguez’s clever finish past David De Gea two minutes after halftime.
It proved to be the same story for the Red Devils, who once again paid the price for their wastefulness in front of goal.
