[Harry Maguire on his journey from England’s third tier to being a regular in the Three Lions line-up] To play in League One in every game when I was 18 was massive for my development. It’s something I’m very proud of. I have great memories and it was a great experience. If it didn’t happen for me back then, I probably wouldn’t be where I am now

[He is currently away with England on Nations League Finals duty and has said of the speculation surrounding his future] At the moment, nothing’s going through my head in terms of club football. I’m fully focused on the games coming up

[England’s players were subjected to racist abuse during Monday night’s 6-0 Euro 2020 qualifying win over Bulgaria in Sofia] The best way to bounce back. Proud of the team. There’s no place in football for that - disgraceful behaviour. Something must be done

[Maguire says he want Sheffield United to win every game - apart from against Man United] It means so much, the club that gave me the chance of fulfilling my dream of becoming a professional footballer. I owe them a lot, I go back and support them whenever I can. It’s the first result I look for when I get off the pitch. I want to see them win every game they play, apart from when we’re playing against them. A fantastic club and it’s great to see them back in the Premier League where they belong

[Maguire acknowledged he is unlikely to get much in the way of support from friends as he visits his old club] It’s nice to go home and see my friends and family. I probably won’t get to see them much this weekend, not before the game anyway, probably after the game – and hopefully I’ll be the one smiling with my friends and not them!

I’m sure some of [my friends] will be supporting Sheffield United, but my family will be supporting Man Utd and hoping we get the three points

[The Norwegian boss remains in the hunt for a European spot after a pressure-filled start to the season and Maguire has thrown his full support behind a man under the microscope] He’s been there and done it, scored the big goals and won the big trophies, so we need to try and follow in his footsteps. It’s great to play under him. He’s been great since I’ve come in and it’s an exciting time for us players to work under someone like Ole

[Harry Maguire admits challenging for top-four finishes is not enough for Manchester United] You can see from the start of the season that we look a lot more like a team. You can see where we want to be and where we want to head. I knew when I first came to Manchester United that Ole had said loads that it’s a building process but we will get to where we want to be. I can see where we are heading and the style that he wants to implement on the team. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of aspects that we still need to improve to get to the top, where we want to be. We don’t like challenging for the Champions League spots, we want to be challenging for titles. We know there is still a lot of improvement to be made, but we feel like we’re on the right track and I’m sure eventually we’ll get there

Playing for Manchester United, every game is so big. I knew before coming to the club having spoken to ex-players – I spoke to Jonny Evans a lot, who recommended an unbelievable club – it’s more than a club. You have seen the way they have acted during this crisis, how classy they have been, it’s more than a football club, it’s something that works well in the community.

It’s been a great run of form for clean sheets. Sometimes you can play in games and play better when you concede one or two goals but [some games] you manage to keep a clean sheet, David [de Gea] makes one or two saves and everyone is praising the defence. One thing we have shored up on at the moment is set-plays. You look back at our record before this run of clean sheets, defending set-plays we were up there with one of the worst in the league. If you do that and aren’t scoring from them at the other end, you aren’t going to stand a chance in getting where you want to go because they are such a big part of the game. It’s just gelled together more. It’s a new back four. We have got a settled back four
