Harry Maguire joins Man Utd injury list, will miss Bayern clash

Manchester United defender Harry Maguire will miss their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich tomorrow, per Sky Sports.

The much-maligned England international centre-back is not part of the 21-man squad that will make the trip to face the Bavarian giants at the Allianz Arena.

It is unclear how he sustained the injury or for how long he will be out.

However, he joins United’s growing list of injury concerns and absences after making only one substitute appearance for the club this season.

The Red Devils are without Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raphael Varane, Sofyan Amrabat, Tyrell Malacia, Amad Diallo, Tom Heaton and Kobbie Mainoo.

Antony has been placed on a leave of absence, while Jadon Sancho has been banished to train alone after a fallout with manager Erik ten Hag.

United have had to navigate these injury problems in the opening weeks of their campaign, and it has derailed their season.

They have struggled in the Premier League, taking only two wins from their opening five games.

United travel to face an everly dangerous Bayern side that has started their Bundesliga campaign on fire. 

However, Die Rekordmeister were held to a 2-2 draw by title hopefuls Bayer Leverkusen in their last league outing. 

United will hope they manage to squeeze a result despite their challenges as they look to take hold of Group A. 

The absence of Maguire will leave United very light at the back, with Lisandro Martinez, Victor Lindelof, and Johnny Evans the only central defensive options available.

Martinez has already had some injury scares and will hope to avoid anything hampering his season.

Evans joined United on a short-term deal to provide cover in situations like this, but the club will hope they don’t have to call on him with the way injuries are decimating the squad.
