Manchester United fans got their joy once again on Sunday during their English Premier League opener against their age-long rivals Chelsea.
Marcus Rashford scored two goals with Anthony Martial and Daniel James each scoring one goal to see the Blues succumb to a humiliating 4-o defeat.
The extraordinary thing that fans easily spotted was the clean sheet that was penned down with the help of their two new signings Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire, who gave David de Gea enough security at the backline.
In his post-match interview, Maguire said that: “I was reiterating on the pitch that we need to concentrate now, even after four and four. We wanted a clean sheet. We knew coming into the season that there was only two clean sheets here last year.”
And his statement caught the attention of fans, who now dream of having him as captain of the club. Here are some of the reactions;
Not all Captains wear armbands

A defender wanting his team to keep a clean sheet? What a shocker!
