Harry Magure feels critics are jealous of Manchester United 

Manchester United attracted criticism for their performances last week as they lost to Arsenal and İstanbul Başakşehir. Captain Harry Maguire, speaking after the win against Everton, felt some of the criticism stemmed from jealousy caused by the club's success over the past two decades.

"At this club one thing I've noticed in my time here — I've been here a year and a half — is we are the most talked-about club in the world. Why? Because we are the biggest club in the world. People don't want us to do well. Why? Probably because of the success we've had in the past."
"We have to live up to that, we have to react to it and don't let the negatives get into our bubble inside the training ground. Sometimes it is difficult for the lads. It wasn't good enough as a performance. In the week again we gave them a soft goal and found it too hard to create chances to come back. We knew this was an important game to get three points. We reacted well but it is only a start. "
