Having joined in a record-breaking transfer two years back, the Red Devils skipper is yet to win his first piece of silverware with the club.

Harry Maguire says Manchester United teammates must demand success from each other after the club progressed to the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Manchester United scraped past West Ham United by the sole Scott McTominay goal to book their place in the last eight of the FA Cup on Tuesday night.

It took extra time to settle the tie as both sides were determined not to let the other breach their defense, but the Hammers eventually gave away at minute 97.

“Yeah, we got there in the end and I feel we deserved it,” Maguire told MUTV. “It’s massive. I think we have six [clean sheets] in 10 games, if I’m right off the top of my head.”

The Red Devils have been unable to get their hands on a trophy since 2017. They came quite close to winning three last season, making deep runs in the League Cup, FA Cup, and Europa League but exiting each competition at the last-four stage.

Maguire added: “Last season, it was disappointing to lose in the semi-finals like we did, but we’ve got to win trophies. We’ve got to demand that of each other. We do.

“We demand that we win trophies and it’s vital the team starts winning trophies, for the club and the fans as well.”
