SOLSKJAER INSISTS MAGUIRE WILL BOUNCE BACK AFTER ENGLAND RED CARD

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted England defender Harry Maguire will "bounce back" from his recent poor run of form.

The most recent of the 27-year-old's troubles was a red card received against Denmark on Wednesday.

This follows a series of on and off pitch problems the Manchester United captain has faced in recent timez.

He was jailed in Greece for assault on police officers just before the Premier League resumed and has displayed a string of poor performances this season.

He could now miss Saturday's Premier League game at Newcastle after Solskjaer said he picked up a knock against Denmark.

While addressing the media, Solskjaer said: "Harry's got great resilience. I know he'll bounce back. I know that he wants to play, he wants to just work his way out of the last couple of games that he's been criticised [for].

"He picked up a knock just before he came off, so I'm just hopeful he'll be fit. We've had a look at him yesterday and give him a test again today."

The former Cardiff City manager further stated: "When Harry is part of the England team that beats number-one ranked Belgium, that's just a normal day, and then you get the headlines when you get the sending off. That's just football for you.

"There's so many ups and downs that we have got to deal with it, individually and as a group."
