Eric Baily injury update

Eric Baily injury update

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an injury update on defender Eric Bailly after the player was withdrawn in their Saturday FA Cup win over Watford.

The Ivory Coast international had to be withdrawn in the dying minutes of the first half after a collision with keeper Dean Henderson with Harry Maguire thrown in to take his place.

Speaking after the game, Solskjaer revealed that Bailly didn’t suffer any concussion as earlier feared but had a problem with his neck with the player set for further assessments on Sunday.

"There was no concussion. Apparently, it was his neck- a sore neck. But he couldn't carry on, so let's check on him tomorrow,” Solskjaer said.

The player himself took to Instagram to assure the club fans that he was okay after reports emerged that he wanted to come back to the field of play but the United medical team refuse to grant that opportunity as a precaution.

United booked a place in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup with the win thanks to a fifth-minute goal by Scott McTominay who started the game as the captain.
