Maguire picked up a knock before his red card on Wednesday, which could rule him out for Man Utd.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is adamant Manchester United captain Harry Maguire will “bounce back” from his recent woes, but hinted that he may have to sit out the game at Newcastle on Saturday.

Maguire again made the headlines this week after he was sent off in England’s 1-0 defeat to Denmark on Wednesday.

The centre-back has endured a torrid spell for both club and country to add to his off field issues.

But Solskjaer has full confidence in his skipper, but admits a knock he picked up before his red card for England may see him struggle to start on Saturday evening.

Solskjaer said: “Football is very very… you’re in the highlights all the time and when Harry is part of the England team which beats No.1 ranked Belgium it’s a normal day and you get the headlines when you get a sending off, that’s just football, so many ups and downs, have to deal with it.

“Harry has got great resilience, knows he’ll bounce back, wants to play and work his way out of the last couple of games he’s been criticised, he picked up a knock just before he came off. We’ll have a look at him today.

“You never know [how players are injury wise] until they get back and we have had a look at them. I think, and we hope, everyone has come through okay. Of course, Alex [Telles] has travelled all round the world. He flew overnight and got here on Thursday.”
