| Last Updated:


The details behind Harry Maguire’s actual injury have been explained ahead of Manchester United’s FA Cup final against Manchester City next weekend.

“Harry Maguire has sustained a muscle injury that will keep him out for about three weeks,” was the official Manchester United club line almost two weeks ago.

This statement was released the day before a 4-0 loss against Crystal Palace. Since then, the English defender has missed two other fixtures for Erik ten Hag’s team, against Arsenal and Newcastle United.

As with many injuries this season, United chose to keep the specific nature of Maguire’s muscle injury a secret, but the actual injury has now been explained.

According to The Sun, the injury that Maguire sustained in training a few days before the Selhurst Park defeat was one to his calf – it is further explained that he is fighting to make himself fit and available to play in the pending FA Cup final against Manchester City next weekend.

Maguire will want as many minutes as possible as Gareth Southgate considers who to select for the upcoming European Championships in Germany this summer. The centre half has been a staple of England’s backline in recent years.

Speaking on Thursday afternoon, Ten Hag was asked about Luke Shaw and Maguire’s injuries and if they will be fit to contend for the upcoming England squad.

“For England, I can’t say, it’s not up to me. But for the cup final, we’re working on [it],” Ten Hag said.

I think Harry Maguire, I think it’s a fair chance that he will be available [for the final]. We plan [for] him.

“Luke is more complicated. In this moment, let’s say it’s a less chance that he will make it. But there is still a very small, reduced chance. He had a setback, now we have to find out how far [from a return] he is.”
