Harry Maguire has managed to establish himself as the leader of Manchester United this season. The English international has played some incredible amount of football throughout the course of the campaign.
According to stats from Transfermarkt, Maguire has made 52 appearances this season for the Red Devils across all competitions and featured for 4653 minutes of football.
Thus, it is safe to say that he has done brilliantly to avoid picking up any serious injuries till now. But the defender was forced off the pitch against Aston Villa in the 78th minute of the game. And while the club did manage to come out with a 3-1 win from the game, Maguire’s injury will surely be a worry for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer moving forward.
While the club have already secured their place in the top four, they still do have some important games coming up. The biggest of them will surely be the Europa League final against Villarreal. Solskjaer provided an update on Maguire’s injury. As reported by the club’s official website, he said:
"“We’ve got to check it. It might be a few weeks, might be a couple of days – who knows. I’m not a doctor and we’ve got to check him and scan him tomorrow.”"

Maguire’s injury will be a massive blow to Manchester United
It is safe to say that Maguire is an integral part of this team and if he does end up missing the Europa League final, it will be a massive blow to the club.
Both Bailly and Lindelof have had their injury issues throughout the course of the campaign. As a result, Solskjaer will be hoping that both of them are able to make it through to the end of the season without picking up an injury if Maguire ends up being ruled out for a considerable length of time.
The most important thing now though is for the Manchester United captain to recover from his injury and come back when he is fully fit to do so. We would like to wish him the best of luck.
