Man Utd lose Bailly for...

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly will miss the first month of the season due to injury.

The Sun says Bailly is set to miss "at least six weeks" after suffering a knee injury against Tottenham, according to reports.

The Ivorian was carried off in yesterday's 2-1 pre-season victory in Shanghai before leaving the stadium on crutches.

The 25-year-old then arrived back in Manchester in a wheelchair and wearing a leg brace after an innocuous moment with Son Heung-min.

Bailly will now miss the start of the Premier League season after suffering a meniscus injury that is expected to sidelined him for at least six weeks, according to ESPN.

The report adds that the former Villarreal star underwent a scan earlier today and the results have highlighted the need for minor surgery.
