Manchester United captain Harry Maguire doesn’t expect to be fit this weekend.
Maguire sustained a calf injury for United against Aston Villa three weeks ago and has been out since then.
As he pushes his recovery, fans will need to be patient before the center-back returns.
Maguire told the club website, “Yes, it works.
“I haven’t trained with the squad yet, but I’m getting better, I’m progressing as I should be. It’s a frustrating injury for me, of course, but I’m making progress and I’ll be back on the field soon. “

When will Maguire return?
There are no guarantees, of course, but there is a very good chance the club’s captain will be back before the end of the month.
The away game in Leicester seems too early. Instead, the home game against Liverpool on October 24th could be a more achievable goal.
The first step is to return to training and Maguire is not there yet. As long as this box is not ticked, it will not be taken into account.
United will know the worst thing they can do is push him back and see him take a setback and come out a second longer.
The English ace is usually so persistent and rarely misses the time before succumbing to an injury at the end of last season, before this one.
With the amount of games Maguire has played since joining United, a setback has always been inevitable at some point.
Above all, it is disappointing that new signing Raphael Varane sustained an injury at the same time.
United rely on Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof for defense, with little room for maneuver to take another injured blow.
