United's injured duo to be assessed

Saturday 25 September 2021 15:43

Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw will be assessed after injuries forced the defensive pair off in Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Shaw was replaced by Diogo Dalot in the 35th minute after failing to shake off a problem he’d picked up midway through the first half at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw left the field in the first half of Saturday's game.

And the left-back was later joined on the sidelines by captain Maguire, who pulled up with a leg injury in the second period and battled on before being forced to leave the field just after the hour mark.

United are next in action at home to Villarreal in the Champions League on Wednesday and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says it’s too early to know whether the England pair will be available.

“Sorry, I can’t give you any updates," the boss told reporters at his post-match press conference.

"We will have to use today and tomorrow and Monday, or when we get the scans done, and see how they are.”
