Harry Maguire has said he is looking to add more goals and trophies to his CV after the Manchester United defender grabbed an extra-time winner to secure our spot in the semi-finals of the Emirates FA Cup.

Our no.5’s reaction finish in the 117th minute of play against Norwich City wrapped up a 2-1 victory for the Reds at Carrow Road, and means we’re the first name in the hat for the last-four draw.

But, as usual, it was at the other end of the pitch where Harry shone and the 27-year-old’s excellent display earned him the Man-of-the-Match award, voted for by fans on our Official App.

“It just fell to me nicely on my left foot and it was a bit of a slide tackle with my left foot,”

he told MUTV.

“You keep getting bodies in the box, you keep putting pressure on and you grind them down and eventually you’re going to create a clear-cut chance. Thankfully, tonight it fell to me.

“I’m always pleased when I chip in, especially when it’s a big result in the last minute of extra time,”

the centre-back said separately to BBC Sport.

“I’m a bit disappointed that I’ve only scored three goals, it’s something I’m working on and looking to improve between now and the end of the season and hopefully I can carry that into next season.”
