Manchester United Football Club won pretty comfortably yesterday, with the Old Trafford outfit booking their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals against Norwich City.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players are just one game away from a Wembley semi-final, and you have to feel like we’re in with a great chance.
Before the game, fans were surprised to learn that Harry Maguire wasn’t even in the matchday squad. Shortly after, the United star took to Twitter to confirm the injury blow.
Maguire stated that he’s working hard to get back fit ASAP, but with the derby against Manchester City now just 48 hours away, Solskjaer will undoubtedly be sweating on his fitness…
This morning, Sky Sports News offered us another update, claiming that Slabhead is doubtful for the game against our noisy neighbours, with Solskjaer confirming that the England international rolled his ankle in training.
Aside from his brilliant defending and unreal leadership, Maguire’s best quality is his toughness. It takes an awful lot for our captain to go down and stay down so I don’t doubt that he’ll do whatever he can within his power to get himself available for this one.
Hopefully, Maguire is available. However, the worst thing United could do is rush him back and re-injure the affected area. We’re going to need him for the run-in, and although picking up a positive result is massive here, there’s plenty of equally huge games that we’re going to need him for later down the line.
Get well soon, Harry!
