This Wednesday, Manchester United manager Ralph Rangnick announced that their defender and captain Harry Maguire would not be available for Thursday’s Premier League match against Chelsea due to a knee injury. According to the Daily Mail, this physical distancing could have kept the Englishman off the field till the end of the season.
Manchester United’s next four Premier League fixtures will be like multiple finals. Currently sixth in the standings, the Red Devils should definitely score points if they want to give themselves a chance to catch up with six units separating themselves from Arsenal in fourth. And thus, qualify for the next Champions League.

The first final will not be easy as the Mancunians will face Chelsea this Thursday (8:45 pm). A blow where Ralph Rangnick will once again have to do without his defender and captain Harry Maguire (29). In front of the press this Wednesday, the technician explained that his player “has a knee problem.” If the German was reassuring by declaring that “it’s not too much”, this physical mess could be so significant that the Englishman is thrown off the field by the end of the season.
According to the Daily Mail, Maguire’s injury could make him unavailable for the next four matches. Despite the Red Devils’ captain’s disjointed performance since the start of the season, such a protracted return from the latter would still be a low weapon for Rangnik, eager to complete his mission with the Mancunians on a high note.
Abandoned after Manchester United’s loss to Arsenal, Maguire could see his future at the club in shambles. For good reason, the English media specifies that future coach Erik ten Haag is looking to hire a new defender.
