Man Utd vs Villarreal: Solskjaer names three key players to miss Champions League tie

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said they will be without captain Harry Maguire and fellow defenders Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka for the visit of Villarreal in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Maguire will be out for “a few weeks” with a calf problem, which he picked up during their 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa last Saturday.

Shaw also limped out of that game, while Wan-Bissaka is suspended following his red card against Young Boys in the first group fixture.

Solskjaer told reporters today: “It looks like Harry is definitely out.

“Luke, we might give a chance to but he didn’t train this morning. So maybe the best-case scenario is he will join us on the bench.

“There has to be a reshuffle but that’s why we have a big squad of good players and I’m sure we’ll get a good performance with whoever is selected.”

The United boss added, ”with Aaron Wan-Bissaka another defensive miss through suspension: “Luke has been in today so I’ll give him a chance to be involved. He didn’t train with the team.

“Harry is, more or less, definitely out and it doesn’t look good. It’s Harry’s calf and it might take a few weeks. Let’s see how quickly he recovers.

“Of course, he was hoping to play against Villarreal before but he missed the last game we played against them. That’s football for you.

“With Aaron suspended, we will have to make a few changes.”
