Man Utd injury blow as Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw ‘don’t look good’ for Villarreal clash on Wednesday

MANCHESTER UNITED’s Champions League plans have been thrown into chaos following Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire’s injuries against Aston Villa.

Shaw was to first to go down injured in the 34th minute of United’s 1-0 loss to Villa with a suspected groin injury.

The left-back initially had to get checked out but seemed okay to carry on.

However, it became clear that his game was over when he went down in agony and had to be replaced by Diogo Dalot as half-time drew closer.

Before his injury, Shaw had been causing Villa a few problems as he bombed up and down the left-flank.

Shaw could have also had a different exit to the Premier League game as he was the first to receive a yellow card quite early on.

And then Maguire made Solskjaer’s headache even worse when he left to pitch to get checked out just 15 minutes into the second period.

The Norwegian decided not to take any chances with his captain and replaced him with Victor Lindelof as the hour mark in the game approached.


Speaking after the game beleaguered boss Solskjaer said: “At the moment they don’t look OK for Wednesday but let’s see.”

“I can’t tell you. Will have to wait a few days and see how they are.”

The double defensive blow is the last thing Solskjaer needs ahead of United’s European clash against Villarreal next week.

United are in desperate need of a win following their dismal 2-1 loss against Young Boys in the group stage opener.

They came under fierce criticism in the game which saw them only manage to get two shots on target.

The Red Devils are hoping to avenge their Europa League final loss to Villarreal in May.

United drew 1-1 with the La Liga giants in normal time, but missed out on the trophy when they lost on penalties.
