Maguire, who was signed by United for 80 million pounds ($104.67 million) in the close season, suffered a knock on his leg in the first half of Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers but played the full 90 minutes. Solskjaer told BT Sport he was unsure if Maguire would be fit for the game at Old Trafford. “We were close to taking him off at halftime but he battled through. “We were not sure if he should continue, but he was adamant he was going to be OK”, said Solskjaer. Maguire’s absence would compound Solskjaer’s selection problems, with centre backs Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo sidelined and United already without midfielders Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay. Solskjaer hopes to have Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard back for the City clash after they missed the Wolves game through illness.Tags: Harry MaguireManchester CityManchester UnitedOle Gunnar Solskjaer

Edem is competing in her first tournament in readiness for the double tournaments holding this month in Tunisia. Her performance against Kazakhstan’s Anastassiya Lavrova confirmed her readiness for the ITTF Africa Top 16 Cup and the Olympic Qualifying Tournament. Despite going down 3-1 (8-11, 11-4, 3-11, 16-18) in the tie, Edem regained her composure to record a convincing win over the European with 14-12, 11-6, 11-2 win to claim a 4-3 win coupled with a passage to the main draw of the women’s singles. Like Edem, Abiodun is also competing in his first major tournament this year. He started well from the first round of the preliminary when he took down Scotland’s Niall Cameron 4-0 (11-6, 11-7, 11-3, 11-6) to set up a second round tie against Germany’s Cedric Meissner. But the German gave Abiodun a tough challenge when he took a 2-1 (11-9, 5-11, 5-11) lead, but the Nigerian international regained the lead to win the last three games at 11-7, 13-11, 11-9 to complete a 4-2 victory and seal his place in the main draw of the men’s singles. Edem and Abiodun will join their compatriot, Olajide Omotayo, who is already seeded in the main draw for their campaigns, which serve off on Friday in the elite stage of the competition. But what started well for teenage sensation, Taiwo Mati, in his debut in international senior tournament came to an end on Thursday as he fell to England’s Tom Jarvis 4-0 (4-11, 2-11, 5-11, 5-11) in the second round of the preliminary. Mati had on Wednesday pummelled Guyana’s Miguel Wong 4-0 (11-5, 18-16, 11-4, 11-1) to pick some ranking points from the tournament. Unlike Mati who sailed to the second round of the preliminary, Ismaila Akindiya was nowhere that stage as he was beaten early by Switzerland’s Lars Posch 4-1 (11-6, 1-11, 10-12, 3-11, 6-11) to make an early exit, while Ganiat Aruna was no match to Italy’s Giorgia Piccolin after the former national junior champion fell 4-0 (1-11, 7-11, 4-11, 2-11) to the Italian star.Tags: Anastassiya LavrovaBode AbiodunOffiong EdemPortugal Open
