Harry Maguire has come out to defend himself regarding an incident involving Michy Batshuayi saying he was only trying to protect himself after thinking the blues striker was going to fall on him.
"I know I caught him and I felt he was going to fall on me and my natural reaction was to straighten my leg to stop him," he said to Sky Sports after the game.
"It wasn't a kick out and there was no intent. I think it's the right decision. I knew I'd caught him but that I had no intent to hurt him. It was just a natural reaction. I apologised to him and it was nice that the referee saw sense."
