Many though Maguire was lucky to stay on the field after he appeared to kick Batshuayi in the first-half.
But Solskjaer insists he didn't see any malice in the challenge.
He said: "I wouldn't think that's a red card. He's just protecting himself.
'He's got a lad [Michy Batshuayi] standing over him and he's got his legs where it does hurt."
