Harry Maguire has reacted to being forced off during the 3-1 win at Aston Villa due to injury.

The Manchester United captain lost his run of being on the pitch for every single minute of Premier League action since joining from Leicester City, in his 72nd appearance in the competition for the club.

It came with the Reds defending the lead after coming from behind at Villa Park as he was clearly in some discomfort when Anwar El Ghazi landed awkwardly on him.

Harry said on Instagram: "Important win. Hoping the injury is nothing serious and I'll be back playing soon.

“Thanks everyone for your messages.”

In an interview with club media's Stewart Gardner at Villa Park, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also provided us with this take on the situation regarding the skipper.

"The boy landed on top of him and he twisted and got a knock on his ankle," the manager explained. "So we just have to test him. I doubt he’ll be ready for Tuesday, to put it that way, but we’ll just have to do all the scans and checks we can."

The Reds entertain Harry's former club Leicester City on Tuesday before facing Liverpool at Old Trafford on Thursday.
