Man United could be without two key players ahead of UEFA Champions League game against Villarreal
Ole Solskjaer and his men failed to find even a draw against Aston Villa as the visitor produced a late stunning goal to head home with all three points.
The Red Devils not finding a goal first only damaged their chances of going top of the league table following 1-0 Manchester City win over Chelsea.
Unfortunately, even when United were handed a decisive chance to restore the game, Bruno Fernandes wasn’t clinical enough to convert the penalty kick as fired wide into mars.
United while hoping to hope back into winning ways after going 2 straight games without finding a victory, will have to do so without two of their key players.
During the encounter with Villa yesterday, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw injured and had to be subbed off before Villa found the goal.
Luke Shaw’s injury although don’t come as a surprise as he has been made aware of the dangers of playing without a surgery amidst a rib injury he played through the Euro with.
Harry Maguire’s on the other hand is yet to be revealed how long he will be out for but according to the manager, the captain is set to miss the game against Villarreal should things remain unchanged.
Speaking after the game, Solskjaer said to BBC concerning the duo’s injuries; “At the moment they don’t look ok for Wednesday but let’s see.”
On the other hand, Marcus Rashford who has been away since the start of the new season following his shoulder surgery is said to be recovering faster than speculated.
It’s likely he would be back in action earlier than expected as this could also serve as a greater boost to the squad who already have Ronaldo in their arsenal.
