Ivorian center back Eric Bailly has had his fair share of injuries for Manchester United but the one that felled him Sunday was a different kind of concerning.

Bailly, 26, went head-to-head with teammate Harry Maguire and both needed medical attention deep in the first half of an FA Cup semifinal at Wembley Stadium

Both center backs were prone on the turf for some time.

While Maguire deemed fit to return with a bandage, a bleeding Bailly was able to walk off the pitch but then laid back on the turf outside the touch line for more care.

Bailly was then given oxygen and put in a neck brace before being wheeled carefully off the field on a stretcher. The unseen nature of after effects adds a worrying degree to head injuries.

He missed a long period of time during the 2017-18 season with an ankle injury before knee surgery cost him the majority of this season. Bailly has played 83 times in four seasons for United.
