Harry Maguire is a major absentee for Manchester United ahead of their Premier League trip to face leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening. The Manchester United skipper will have to sit out the Chelsea game after receiving a red card for two bookings during the Red Devils’ last league outing, a disappointing 4-1 loss at the hands of hosts and newly promoted side Watford.
Manchester United skipper Maguire will miss the Chelsea game away from home in the league on Sunday, but he should be back for the home game with Arsenal on Thursday. Another player who could miss the Chelsea game is Brazilian footballer Fred after he twisted his ankle during the midweek game with Spanish team Villarreal in the Champions League.
Caretaker manager Michael Carrick gave an update on Fred in his pre-match presser for the Chelsea game. He said that the Brazilian midfielder continued playing until the end of the Villarreal game on Tuesday night despite a twisted ankle.
