Why Harry Maguire could get a lifeline at Man Utd after Argentina win the World Cup

HARRY MAGUIRE could be a lifeline for Manchester United because Argentina won the World Cup.

Lionel Scaloni and his side are expected to return to Buenos Aires on Tuesday for a confetti parade through the capital after beating France to lift the trophy for a third time.

But that almost certainly rules out United defender Lisandro Martinez and four of his team-mates from resuming the Premier League from Boxing Day.

And in turn, an absence for the South American would open the door for Maguire, who is now back at Old Trafford after his desert hardships, ready to be called up for December 27’s game against Nottingham Forest.

Alongside United boss Erik ten Hag, Spurs boss Antonio Conte, Aston Villa’s Unai Emery, City’s Pep Guardiola and Brighton’s Roberto De Zerbi are likely to be without key men thanks to Argentina’s win.

Conte and Spurs fans could be frustrated if Cristian Romero – who missed the last five games before the World Cup but recovered from his injury to feature in all seven games in Qatar – for their Boxing Day lunchtime trip Brentford was not available.

Brighton could be without Alexis Mac Allister for their south coast derby in Southampton this afternoon and Emery may have to turn to error keeper Robin Olsen for the evening’s clash with Liverpool with last hero Emi Martinez unavailable.

Guardiola would have an extra 48 hours to get Julian Alvarez back and ready, with City not playing their first celebratory game until they travel to Leeds on December 28.

The likelihood of being without key men was something the top Prem bosses were aware of prior to the tournament.

Chelsea manager Graham Potter said last month: “I don’t know what other people’s motivation will be after a World Cup.

“Most winners celebrate in open buses – and then take a three-week holiday to get over the celebrations.

“I could be selfish and say we need her back.

“But if they don’t go and celebrate and have to come back here, it becomes difficult. You need to recover emotionally.

“And if you lost the World Cup final, it takes more than three or four days to get over it.”
