The injury crisis at Manchester United deepened significantly on Sunday after both Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw had to be substituted off during the Red Devils’ match against Swansea.
Jose Mourinho is now facing having to bring in youth and inexperience to cope with the losses with Man United defenders Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling all also on the sidelines this week.
With massive matches ahead both in Europe and in the Premier League, there couldn’t be a worse time this season for all of this to happen.
It was a terrible Sunday for supporters who also had to endure a 1-1 draw at home to Swansea City. The two points dropped are a significant blow to their hopes of making it into the top four come the end of the season and qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
The rollercoaster season continues at Old Trafford.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
So we are officially finished. No Bailly again?

Gutted for Bailly, just hope it isn't a serious injured otherwise Mourinho will have to pick himself in the remaining matches
