Man Utd boss Solskjaer gives Maguire and Bailly injury updates before West Ham fixture

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed a belief Harry Maguire will be fit for Wednesday’s Premier League showdown with West Ham. The England international sustained a head injury in Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea. Eric Bailly also hobbled off at Wembley – but Solskjaer is in the dark over his fitness. 

Solskjaer has admitted that his United players were left disappointed by their showing in Sunday’s FA Cup defeat to Chelsea, where they lost 3-1 at Wembley.

But he feels they’re now ready to go again, saying: “Apart from being disappointed and having bruised pride after losing the game, we’re ready to go again.

“We know now we’ve got two cup finals to play.”

Maguire was poor for United against Chelsea and appeared to be impacted by a head injury sustained in the first half following a collision with Bailly.

Yet Solskjaer has insisted he’ll be fit for the match against West Ham, saying: “He was in yesterday [Monday] and should be fine.”

United go into the match against West Ham having not lost a league game since January.

That was to fierce rivals Liverpool at Anfield, with goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah giving the Reds all three points.

United have struggled against West Ham in recent seasons.

They lost 3-1 in the league to the Hammers last season at the London Stadium on a nightmare afternoon for Jose Mourinho.

And they slipped to a 2-0 defeat to West Ham at the London Stadium earlier in the campaign.
