Ole Gunnar Solskjaer issues injury update on Eric Bailly

Eric Bailly is recovering in hospital after being stretchered off with a head injury during Manchester United’s defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.

Bailly was forced off in the first half of the match at Wembley after clashing heads with his United teammate Harry Maguire.

The Ivory Coast international was treated by medical staff on the pitch and was briefly able to stand before he was placed on a stretcher.

The defender has suffered a cut to the back of his head and is now going through checks at a hospital in London.

‘Eric is in hospital, going through all the routine checks and protocols,’ Solskjaer said after the game.

‘He got a cut in the back of his head as well so I don’t really know any more. I haven’t heard or spoken to the doctor about him.

‘Of course that moment had a big, big impact on the game.

‘Eric played very well in his 42 or 44 minutes that he was on for and we conceded just after the restart which was very disappointing.

‘Eric was [until then] a big part of us not having any chances created against us really.’
