Harry Maguire said he hoped to be back on duty “soon” after sustaining a calf injury last month.
The defender hobbled off in the 66th minute of Man Utd’s 1-0 defeat by Aston Villa on September 25, with Victor Lindelof joining Raphael Varane on defense in his absence for the games against Villarreal and Everton that summer became.
However, Varane is now expected to miss “a few weeks” after suffering a groin injury in the France match.
Details of Maguire’s injury have been a bit sparse so far, although the England international has announced that he will be “back on the field soon”, although it is very unlikely that he will be able to return to his former club Leicester on Saturday after failing The first team’s training came back together.
“Yes, it does,” he said MUTV
“I haven’t trained with the squad yet, but I’m getting better, I’m progressing as I should be.
“It’s a frustrating injury, of course, but I’m making progress and I’ll be back on the field soon.”
The mini-injury crisis means United will be the only senior options for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the upcoming game against Leicester over the weekend with Lindelof, Eric Bailly and forgotten man Phil Jones.
After that, United has a tough streak of games in October and November, with games against Liverpool, Tottenham, Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal all due before the end of next month, as well as three Champions League games.
