Bailly not ready to count injury-free days just yet

Eric Bailly was signed by Manchester United with a lot of hope that he would become the next Nemanja Vidic or Rio Ferdinand. He joined the club from Villarreal in 2016 for around £35 million but his time at Old Trafford has been ravaged by injuries.

After making 25 appearances in his first season,Bailly has never been able to make more than 15 league appearances in a single campaign since then. Now, however, the defender seems to be finally overcoming his injury problems as he has now featured in four consecutive league matches this time since 2017.

Nemanja Matic doubts Manchester United’s title prospects next season

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has indicated that the Red Devils don’t stand much of a chance of competing for the Premier League title next term, considering the lack of experience within the forward ranks. The likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have impressed with their frontline duties in the past few seasons but Matic does not believe they are prepared to take up the challenge of winning the English crown.

He said: “Quality and experience brings you the title. In this squad we have quality and no experience.We have five or six top players, but they are still young like Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. They have shown their quality on the pitch but they are too young to lead the team of course. Football always wants results but the fans need to be patient so they can improve. In the future I am sure these players will take United back where they belong.”
