Bailly was part of the Elephants' 2015 Afcon-winning side, where he played every game of the tournament.

While Manchester United can still mathematically qualify for a top-4 position, they would have to depend on the results of their rivals, while ensure they win both of their remaining games.

The Ivory Coast defender walked off the field and it has now been confirmed that the player is out for the rest of the season.

Speaking after the game to the club's official website, United manager Solskjaer gave an update on the Ivory Coast international's condition: "He will need a scan tomorrow but I don't think it is the worst knee injury you can have. I am sure we won't see him again this season, unfortunately".

Centre-backs Phil Jones and Chris Smalling missed the Chelsea clash due to fitness concerns.
