Watch horror Harry Maguire gaffe as Man Utd captain gifts Spurs their first goal and appears to take out Luke ShawOctober 4, 2020
HARRY MAGUIRE'S horrendous gaffe gifted Tottenham their first goal after he took out team-mate Luke Shaw.
The Red Devils skipper made a horrible mess of dealing with the danger to allow Spurs an immediate way back into Sunday's Premier League clash at Old Trafford.
Maguire and new centre-back partner Eric Bailly exchanged equally ill-advised headers on the edge of their own box after a Spurs throw had been deflected towards them.
Maguire then headed the ball back towards David De Gea – but his backpass was so under-hit it barely got past covering left-back Luke Shaw.
And as Shaw went to put his body between Erik Lamela and the ball, his captain bizarrely appeared to tug on his shoulder, pulling Shaw down and out of the way.
The ball broke for Tanguy Ndombele and despite Maguire's despairing attempt at a block the ball ricocheted past De Gea to level the game up at 1-1.
Things went from bad to worse for Maguire just three minutes later when he fouled England colleague Harry Kane.
Kane sprung up and took a quick free-kick catching Maguire high up the pitch and out of position and threaded a ball through the heart of United's defence allowing Son Heung-min to make it 2-1 after just seven minutes.
United were gifted a penalty barely 30 seconds in by Davinson Sanchez's rash challenge on Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes duly converted.
But Maguire's howler sparked a dreadful first-half turnaround for United – which included Martial's first red card in his club career for slapping Lamela.
