Harry Maguire Ruled Out Leicester City Clash

Harry Maguire Ruled Out Leicester City Clash

Harry Maguire of Manchester United has yet to resume full training following his injury and is slated to miss Saturday's match against Leicester. 

With a calf injury, the centre-back has missed United's last two games and was ruled out of England's World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary. 

Maguire is expected to return to training soon, but his continued absence is causing a headache for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is also without Raphael Varane, his other first-choice centre-back, for the next several weeks.

Varane is out of the forthcoming games against Leicester, Atalanta, and Liverpool due to a groin ailment he suffered while on international duty with France. 

There is no timetable for Maguire's return, but United will be eager to get their captain back as soon as possible considering the close proximity of the fixtures.

"It's getting there," the 28-year-old told the club's website. I haven't yet trained with the squad, but I am improving and moving in the right direction. 

"Obviously, it's a disappointing injury for me, but I'm making progress and will be back on the field soon." 

United's starting centre-backs for the games against Leicester, Atalanta, and Liverpool might be Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.

Solskjaer is already up against it, having presided over three defeats in United's previous six games, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford against Everton before the international break. 

Without his two first-choice centre-backs, he now faces the most difficult stretch of United's season.
