Manchester United face anxious wait over defensive duo ahead of Leicester City clash

Manchester United are facing the possibility of being without their best two centre backs Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire for this weekend’s Premier League clash against Leicester City, who beat the Reds on all three occasions last term.

United have yet to discover the severity of Raphael Varane’s thigh problem after the 28-year-old hobbled off in the first half of France’s Nations League final victory over Portugal yesterday.

Varane spent the second half cheering on his French team-mates with ice taped around his right leg while sat on the bench.

The French defender is due to have a scan on his thigh at Carrington tomorrow, as per The Times.

The Reds are also set to be without skipper Harry Maguire, who ESPN claim has started light training during the international break.

Maguire has not yet been included in full contact sessions and is facing a race against time to prove his fitness for the game at the King Power Stadium.

Solskjaer may have to turn to Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof in the heart of defence.
