Video: Bailly wanted to play on after nasty knee-to-head collision with Man United team-mate

Eric Bailly went off injured at the end of the first-half to be replaced by Harry Maguire.

Harry Maguire took the captain’s armband off Scott McTominay, who scored the only goal of the game so far with a stunning header.

He replaced Bailly after the Ivorian centre-back took a nasty knock to the head after colliding with Dean Henderson.

Henderson was coming out to retrieve the ball when his knee crashed into Bailly’s head.

The manager decided to take Bailly off which was the right call because the defender didn’t look like he could carry on playing.

But Bailly felt he could and made his point clear to United’s medical staff at the side of the pitch.

Check out the footage below:

He wanted to continue playing but Solskjaer must think about United’s upcoming games, like Burnley and away to Liverpool.
