Centre-back Harry Maguire, who joined the Red Devils from Leicester City in August, captained his new side for the first time in their 1-0 win over Partizan on Thursday.

However, ahead of kick-off, he seemingly forgot his captaincy duties, leaving the referees and Partizan skipper Vladimir Stojkovic waiting to conduct the coin toss.

He joked about his blunder after the game, before saying how honoured he was with his new role.

"It's a massive honour to lead the team out, especially such a big club like United," Maguire told BT Sport.

"I'm really proud, but more importantly I'm happy we got the clean sheet and the three points.

"It was really important to get the away win – it's been a long time coming. We weren't at our best and it was scrappy at times, but we always knew our first away win would be one we had to grind out."

The 1-0 victory at Partizan was United's first win away from home in 12 games, with their last victory on the road coming in their famous 3-1 triumph at Paris Saint-Germain in March.
