Manchester United captain Harry Maguire missed his first Premier League minutes for Man United when he was forced off at Aston Villa.

Harry Maguire will miss a Premier League match for Manchester United for the first time this season when they host his former club Leicester on Tuesday.

Harry Maguire, who had played in every league minute in 71 games prior to United’s 3-1 win at Aston Villa, was forced off at Villa Park in the 78th minute with an ankle injury following a tangle with Anwar El Ghazi.

Due to the quick turnaround in games,Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already ruled out Maguire for the visit of Leicester and the club captain will have a scan on Monday to determine the full extent of his injury.

“The players are learning, developing, the group as a whole, getting better,” Solskjaer said. “You’ve been to the stadium, you hear the spirit, the camaraderie, they back each other, there is competition for places. Very happy that we’ve done that twice now.

“We have a final to look forward to. Hopefully it will be with Harry Maguire, I don’t know. We’ve got to check him. It might be a few weeks, it might be a couple of days, who knows.

“Hopefully he won’t be too bad but I’m not a doctor and we’ve got to check him and scan him tomorrow. It was his ankle, lower leg, I think the boy landed on top of him, so he twisted his ankle and got a knock.

“Harry has been excellent and it is almost unheard of, the minutes he has played without missing out. His fitness is very good, he’s robust but today it looked like the boy landed on top of him and he twisted his ankle, so that’s something you can’t really defend yourself against. Unfortunately, he had to come off.

“I don’t know how bad it is. Maybe he’s available for Thursday I don’t know, I will tell you more on Tuesday night when I next see you all.”

Ivorian defender Eric Bailly replaced Harry Maguire against Villa and is expected to line up on Tuesday.
