Manchester United has been hit with a significant setback in the form of injuries ahead of their upcoming match against Crystal Palace.

Manchester United received a significant setback as they prepare to face Crystal Palace in an upcoming game. Erik ten Hag, the team’s manager, will be missing a crucial player for the match.

The injury news comes just as Manchester United is striving to regain momentum in the Premier League, with a game scheduled against Crystal Palace on Monday at Selhurst Park. After Chelsea’s recent victory over West Ham United, Manchester United finds themselves in eighth place in the league standings.

Unfortunately for Erik ten Hag, the team will have to cope without Harry Maguire, who is dealing with a muscle injury. The club announced that Maguire will be sidelined for approximately three weeks due to this injury, a setback that affects their upcoming fixtures against Palace, Arsenal, and Newcastle United in the league.

Despite this setback, there is hope that Maguire might recover in time for the FA Cup final against Manchester City on May 25. However, until then, Ten Hag is left with limited options in the center-back position, with several key players like Lisandro Martinez, Victor Lindelof, and Raphael Varane also unavailable due to injuries. Young defender Willy Kambwala is also out with an injury.

The return of Jonny Evans to training offers a glimmer of hope, as he could potentially feature in the game against Palace. In their previous match against Burnley, Manchester United paired Casemiro with Maguire in defense, ending the game in a 1-1 draw. Casemiro might continue in that role against Palace due to the injury situation.

Maguire’s absence is significant considering his contributions this season, with 31 appearances across all competitions and 22 in the league. The team will have to navigate these challenges in defense as they aim to finish the season on a strong note.
