Harry Maguire is expected to return to the Manchester United squad for their final game of the season against Brighton, while Marcus Rashford will be absent.
Harry Maguire, who has recovered from a knee injury, might make his Manchester United debut against Brighton, but Marcus Rashford is expected to miss the match due to illness.
Maguire has been sidelined for the last two games against Chelsea and Brentford due to a knee injury, but he will be included in the travelling squad for United’s penultimate game of the season.
In addition to Rashford being ruled out, backup centre-back Eric Bailly may possibly be unable to play owing to a back injury. Even though Luke Shaw has returned to individual training, he is still not expected to be available to play again this season.
“Harry has returned to the training ground,” interim manager Ralf Rangnick announced. As a result, he has been training throughout the week since the second day following the Brentford game, and he will be available for selection for tomorrow’s game.
In any case, Edinson is in training, having been brought in as a replacement. ” Marc-Andre ter Stegen will be absent due to bronchitis and a high temperature, and Eric Bailly’s availability is in doubt due to back concerns, for which he went to the doctor today and is currently being examined. We’ll have to see if he’ll be able to return to training following that. ”
Asked whether or not Maguire will return to the starting lineup, manager Christoph Rangnick said: “This is a decision I have to make after training today.”

Considering that United do not play their final league game of the season until May 22 at Crystal Palace, they will have a 15-day break after their game against Brighton. The fact that United might still mathematically finish fourth, even if they lose to Brighton and Tottenham loses to Liverpool on Saturday evening, despite Rangnick’s assertion that their Champions League qualifying ambitions are all but finished, is a testament to the strength of their team.
Added Rangnick, “I think the last two home games, we got four points against Chelsea and Brentford, we talked about the Brentford game, it was one of our best games in possession of the ball and also one of our best games in the last six months.” “And I am certain the team will strive to perform at the same kind of level tomorrow at Brighton and in two weeks’ time at Crystal Palace.
I enjoyed the game because you could tell they were having a good time playing together and having a good time on the pitch, which is exactly the kind of approach we need for tomorrow’s game,” says the coach.
