Eric Bailly Out for the Season, Marcus Rashford Doubt for Huddersfield Match

Share

There were a few casualties for Manchester United in their 1-1 draw at home with Chelsea today. First and foremost, their top four chances are pretty much nil at this point. Yes, their last two games are against the Premier League’s bottom side and a team that will likely join them in getting relegated, but today was a must win for the Red Devils.

Chelsea and Arsenal kept giving United opportunities to get back into the top four, but United just wouldn’t seize them. They have no one to blame but themselves.

The odds are long against United finishing in the top four, and if you’re perusing the websites of any online casinos uk then you’ll see what a risky bet they truly are at this point. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is well aware. “If you look at the league table it’s going to be difficult,” he said in his post match news conference.

“It’s one of those days and we must dust ourselves down and win the next two. You never know as points are being dropped left, right and centre.

“You never know, we felt we needed to win this game.”

In the first half, United looked as good as they have for any extended stretch of playing time in, well, a very long while. This result means they now have just two wins in their last ten). However, another really bad David de Gea gaffe led to a Chelsea equalizer, and the second half was goalless. De Gea, lately, has been like playing the real money online pokies as you just don’t know what is going to happen. It’s all a wide variability of outcomes.

United also have two fresh injury concerns from this match, Central defender Eric Bailly had to be stretchered off and he left the stadium on crutches wearing a protective leg brace. He’s done for the season now. Forward Marcus Rashford left early with an injury to his shoulder and may miss the next match, at Huddersfield Town.

“Eric — it’s a bad injury but I’m sure we won’t see him again this season unfortunately,” Solskjaer said in regards to Bailly. On Rashford he offered this:

“We strapped him up before the game and his shoulder got worse and worse.”
