I don’t think he will ready for the weekend, but let’s see.’ Maguire tore the muscle at the top of his hip in last weekend’s FA Cup tie at Wolves, and there were concerns that he could be out of action for up to two months.

In the absence of Maguire, Phil Jones was brought in to partner Victor Lindelof in central defence.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Harry Maguire’s hip injury is not as bad as feared and Manchester United’s £80million defender even has an outside chance of making a surprise comeback against Norwich on Saturday.Advertisement Loading…

You can imagine even the quirky Brian Wilson entering the Dodgers clubhouse for the first time in August with a bit of trepidation.Wilson, the former Giants closer who owns a dastardly beard and interesting vibe, had come to resurrect his career with his former rival. But the awkward transition was comforted by a friendly face in the corner of the clubhouse: Juan Uribe.The former Giants teammates, who won a World Series together in 2010, bonded again instantly. Their must-see pre-game dominoes tilts filled with cash, loud voices and swear words in two languages, commenced.“You play dominoes to be calm mentally and relax and get ready for the game,” Uribe said. “It’s a way to do it where everyone can see. For me, this guy is a good guy and a good teammate. “He likes winning like me. He’s a guy you want on your team.”Wilson didn’t talk to Uribe before he signed with the Dodgers, but they picked up where they left off in a hurry. “I’ve always known what kind of caliber teammate Uribe is, and I knew he’d be a great fit here,” Wilson said. “As soon as I found out I was coming over, the friendship is basically the same — laughing, joking, having a good time. Playing some serious dominoes.”This isn’t about dominoes, of course, but they do have that in common. And dominoes are more entertaining to watch than a player working on a crossword puzzle.This is about a friendship between an infielder from the Dominican Republic and a pitcher from Massachusetts who together helped win the ultimate prize in baseball. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Reuniting feels so good, even if it’s in Southern California — where Wilson lives in the offseason — and not Northern California where their friendship was born. They’re trying to team up to win a World Series again, this time with the Dodgers.“He knows about winning,” Uribe said. “That’s a guy you want to be on your team.”Uribe will be relied on heavily for his postseason swagger as he and Carl Crawford are the only two Dodgers starters with World Series experience. Jerry Hairston, Nick Punto and Skip Schumaker also have World Series experience.The Dodgers last made the playoffs in 2009 and last won a World Series in 1988.Wilson is a big story not only for his personality, wit and beard, but because he’s pitching again after his second Tommy John surgery.The Giants didn’t re-sign him after the 2012 season, in which he pitched in just two games but still was with the team for its second World Series win in three years. He hadn’t pitched since April of 2012 before returning to the mound for the Dodgers last month. The Dodgers gave him a chance, and he’s seemingly been there forever, even with a getaway-day black suit complete with dark pink shirt and black shoes with pink trim and skeleton heads.It’s about the people and pitches, not the shoes or that scraggly beard. Even when Wilson faced the Giants in September, he didn’t get emotional.“Not at all. It’s another team,” Wilson said. “Everybody wants to think it’s something it’s not. It’s hitters that I’ve known for a while. It’s me getting my three outs or whatever my team needs me to do.”Uribe hit a career-high 24 home runs in 2010 in the Giants’ World Series championship season. He struggled in his transition with the Dodgers, hitting just .204 with four home runs in 77 games in 2011 and .191 with two home runs in 66 games with the Dodgers in 2012, all the while battling injuries.He’s so well-liked by his teammates, that even when Uribe was the victim of the hidden-ball trick against Tampa this season, Adrian Gonzalez was the first to present him with the third-base bag and a shoe taped to it as a prank. Uribe can laugh about it all, especially because he’s hitting and seemingly has his groove back. Wilson already has the Dodgers’ back like he’s been bleeding blue forever. After the Dodgers clinched the National League West in Arizona, he came to his team’s defense. Arizona Senator John McCain was one of many people to complain about the Dodgers’ celebration in the Diamondbacks’ pool. McCain tweeted the Dodgers were “No-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats!”Wilson tweeted a stinging — and funny — response: “Senator McComplain knows a thing or two about coming in second and watching someone take a plunge in the pool (I mean poll) #PooLITICS.” For Wilson, he’s simply happy to be pitching again. He led the National League with 48 saves in 2010 but didn’t have a contract to pitch with any team when the season started in April. He worked out on his own and was confident he was ready in August. The Dodgers were ready for him, especially if he can live up to his Twitter Avatar, which demonstrates he’s proud of two things:“Twitter of a world champion, and a world champion beard.”He and Uribe don’t have a beard in common, but that doesn’t mean Uribe doesn’t understand that unruly abundance of black facial hair that should have its own name. “It’s good. I like it,” Uribe said. “Some people don’t. But I like it. Fans do, too.”They’ll like Uribe and Wilson even more if they can bring another World Series title to Los Angeles.
The club have not had the best form in the group stages in previous years, but this time they have qualified with two games to spare 1 Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany breathed a sigh of relief as his side ‘finally’ stepped up to the plate in Europe.Two goals in the opening 11 minutes gave Manuel Pellegrini’s side the perfect platform to see out a vital 3-1 victory in Sevilla, with strikes from Raheem Sterling, Fernando and Wilfried Bony put them to the top of Group D, qualifying for the next stage with two games to spare.While progressing from the group stage has been a major hurdle for City in the past, last season they made it through only to face Barcelona in the first knock-out stage and duly made a swift exit.With that in mind, Kompany is keen for them to build on their progress so far and top the group in the hope of an easier draw.“The first feeling is ‘Finally’,” he said on BT Sport 2 as City could enjoy a truly special performance in Europe.“It’s a difficult group and for us to qualify with two games to go is an incredible achievement.“We need to go on. It would be a first for us to finish first in our group and that’s important because we have been unlucky in the draws before.”They are now one point ahead of group rivals Juventus, who drew at Borussia Monchengladbach in the other Group D contest. Manager Manuel Pellegrini changed his team’s shape by leaving out De Bruyne in order to feature Fernando, Fernandinho and Toure together in midfield, and enjoyed the results after revealing he had not been impressed with some of City’s recent displays.Pellegrini said: “I’m happy with the way we played, we scored three goals, missed three of four clear chances to score and we defended well.“I was not happy with the way we were playing in the previous games, so I’m happy with our form in this game.“The three midfielders – Yaya Toure, Fernandinho and Fernando – played well, pressed higher and our attack was really prepared. We played with one touch and moved into space, that was the reason we created so many chances.”
