A report on the club's website read: "We can confirm that Manchester United defender Eric Bailly suffered a medial ligament injury on his right knee during Sunday's Premier League match against Chelsea at Old Trafford".
The injury, however, could have been much worse.
The 25-year-old Ivorian injured his medial ligament in a collision with Mateo Kovacic during the second half of the game. After lengthy treatment which brought the stretcher out, Bailly hobbled off with the assistance of two trainers, refusing the stretcher and instead hopping on one foot all the way down the tunnel.
Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is confident he will return stronger next season.
