Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire were both forced off through injury during Manchester United’s Premier League encounter with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Shaw pulled up with a problem midway through the half and, after attempting to run it off, it became apparent the left-back couldn’t continue and was replaced by Diogo Dalot in the 34th minute, before walking gingerly down the touchline to the dressing room.

Harry Maguire left the field just after the hour mark

And it was a similar story after the interval for skipper Maguire, who went down holding his leg and, after continuing for a few minutes, had to be replaced by Victor Lindelof just after the hour mark.

Both defenders have been ever-present in the league so far for the Reds and their early departure will be a concern for boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of a key week, with Villarreal due to visit Old Trafford in the Champions League on Wednesday.

We'll report any updates provided by Solskjaer in his post-match interviews.
