Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopeful with Manchester United injuries

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemed to be hopeful over the injuries Marcus Rashford and Eric Bailly suffered during the clash with Chelsea.

The Norwegian watched on helplessly after his side limped to a draw with the Blues which put a huge dent in their top four aspirations.

United initially led through a Juan Mata effort after some fantastic piece of play that involved Romelu Lukaku and Luke Shaw.

Unfortunately David de Gea‘s error allowed Chelsea back into the match and Solskjaer’s men couldn’t push on to find a winner.

Rashford and Bailly were both substituted off the pitch after picking up knocks with fans fearing the worst, particularly with the latter.

With just two fixtures left in the Premier League season, it’s probably unlikely supporters will see either feature once more.

In truth Marcus could do with the rest given his poor form of late with some suggesting it could be due to him suffering a classic case of burnout.

Eric played well before being taken off with there being suggestions of a promising partnership forming between hisself and Victor Lindelof.

The Ivorian will now have to try to prove himself once again from the start of the next campaign if he’s still at the club after the summer.
