Maguire has played alongside new £55.3million United signing Lisandro Martinez in both of those games, but it could be all change when they face the Reds, as they look to turn their fortunes around.

The former Ajax boss is said to be mulling over the prospect of starting new boy Martinez with Raphael Varane, who will almost certainly be recalled, according to Manchester Evening News.

The same report suggests that players already feel Ten Hag’s approach does not suit their skill set and they have their own ideas of how they should approach the match against Liverpool.

United struggled against Jurgen Klopp’s side last season, suffering a 5-0 defeat at Old Trafford and then losing 4-0 at Anfield later in the campaign.

The 29-year-old has retained his captaincy under the new boss despite coming under intense criticism last season and even having fans calling for him to be stripped of the armband.

‘He’s proved it in the past but he also has to prove it in the present time and in the future. ‘He has played how many times? Sixty times for England? He is a career that is really impressive and I expect a lot from him.

‘But there is also internal competition and that is what a club like Man United needs.’ United face Liverpool on Monday night as Ten Hag’s side go in search of a much-needed win.
