Man Utd fear Harry Maguire could have played last game this season after picking up knee injury ahead of Chelsea clash

HARRY MAGUIRE could have played his last game this season after suffering a knee injury.

The Manchester United captain was dropped to the bench against Arsenal.

Maguire and his family are currently staying with a team-mate after a bomb threat on his house last week.

He added: “Obviously if results are not going well, and we have lost three of the last four games, the morale, energy in the locker room isn't as good as it would be.

“Still we have to perform, this is what we're getting paid for.

“It's important for the players, knowing a new manager is coming in, to show we are able to beat a team like Chelsea, this is our job, this is what everyone has to do and this is what we have been working for.”
