Maguire dreaming of Wembley glory

Manchester United defender Harry Maguire says it "would mean everything" to win the FA Cup.

Maguire scored the winner on Saturday as his side won their quarter-final at Norwich City but admits they will need to play much better in the last four of the competition.

United took the lead through January addition Odion Ighalo, who fired a brace against Derby County in the previous round, early in the second half before Todd Cantwell's long-range equaliser at Carrow Round.

I joined this club to win trophies - it's a great tournament.

Timm Klose was shown a straight red card for his challenge on Ighalo minutes before the end and the two sides were on course for penalties until Maguire found the net in the 118th minute to send United into the semi-finals.

The Red Devils are now on course for their first FA Cup trophy since 2016, when they beat Crystal Palace in the final, having finished runners-up in the competition to Chelsea in 2018.

And Maguire, who joined Manchester United from Leicester City for £80 million at the start of the season, becoming the world's most expensive defender in the process, has his sights set on lifting the trophy.

Speaking to MUTV, he said: "It would mean everything [to win the FA Cup]. I joined this club to win trophies - it's a great tournament and hopefully we play a lot better in the semi-final than tonight.

"It was a difficult game and we made hard work of it.

"We played a little slow and went through the middle a bit too much, we should have done wide a lot more - we're in the semi-final and that's all that matters."

United return to Premier League action in the week and are 1.53 to beat Brighton, who are 6.50 with the draw 4.20, in the Premier League.
