Solskjaer delivers positive update on Harry Maguire ahead of Norwich clash

Manchester United have been handed a major boost with the news that Harry Maguire might be in the team for Norwich clash on Saturday. 

The defender picked a hip injury last week during an FA Cup tie against Wolves and was expected to be out for a number of weeks. 

Speaking on Friday in his press conference, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer indicated the England international might make a surprise return.

“He's got a chance of tomorrow so we'll give him today training and see if he gets through that one because it wasn't a bad one,” declared the Norwegian while speaking to MUTV.

He added: “We'll see tomorrow.”

There was further good news for Man United with defenders Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah expected to feature in the Under-23s' Premier League clash with Newcastle United on Friday evening after recovering from serious knee injuries.

The only low side is Jesse Lingard's unavailability after he suffered from illness. 

“Jesse's illness has got worse and so he won't be available,” said Ole. 

“Apart from that, we're getting players back. Eric and Tim are going to play in the Reserves tonight. It's positive for them and they've been waiting for a long time, training for a while now, and it'll be good to see them in a proper kit.”

Other players who wont be available for Ole Gunnar are Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba, who are not expected to be back until at least three weeks.
