Harry Maguire ruled out Leicester city clash

Harry Maguire

 

Manchester United’s Harry Maguire is yet to return to full training as he recovers from injury and is expected to miss Saturday’s match against Leicester.

The centre-back has missed United’s last two games with a calf injury, and was unavailable for England’s World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.

And although Maguire expects to be back in training soon, his ongoing absence is a headache for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is also without his other first-choice centre-back, Raphael Varane, for the next few weeks.

Varane suffered a groin problem on international duty with France and will miss the upcoming games against Leicester, Atalanta and Liverpool.

There is no time frame on Maguire’s return, but United will be hoping to have their captain back quickly given those matches fall within the space of eight days.

The 28-year-old told the club’s website: “It’s getting there. I still haven’t trained yet with the squad, but I am getting better, I am progressing as I should be.

“It is obviously a frustrating injury for me to get, but I am progressing, and I will be back on the pitch soon.”

Solskjaer is already up against it after overseeing three defeats in United’s previous six matches, with the team most recently drawing 1-1 to Everton at Old Trafford before the international break.

He now enters the toughest period of United’s season without his two first-choice centre-backs.
