Manchester United’s centre-half is running on a rich vein of form this season, but the Red Devils are managing the often-injured star carefully.

Manchester United

manager

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

admits that

Eric Bailly

’s absence in the FA Cup victory over

Liverpool

was done as a precaution, and he will return to action on Wednesday’s

Premier League

battle against

Sheffield United

.

The Ivory Coast international has featured in 13 games in all competitions for his side this season and is recovering from an injury. Since the 26-year-old has had some untimely knocks, the Red Devils boss is trying to be careful.

Solskjaer said: “

Eric will be available [to face Sheffield United

].

It was just a little thing that I didn’t want to risk him. We had cover on the bench and Victor was ready so there was no point on taking a risk with Eric.

“He’s fine, there’s no problem. I can’t say if he’s playing or not, but he’s fit and available for selection for Wednesday.”

Bailly has received a lot of praise this season, with the Ivorian proving himself to be a qualified asset for Manchester United again. However, he would rather take things slowly and stay away from the headlines.

It’s too early. Too early!

” Bailly said when asked about his form.

Now you need to make your head calm, train and keep going, getting ready to help the team. That’s my first mission and I hope I don’t get injured again.

“The injuries are very difficult for players when they have the good form. It’s very important to be ready to play every game.

“That [playing regularly] is very important for me, as before, I’d had comments, difficult moments, but now I’ve come back into the team. I am feeling good, train well and I’ll be ready to help the team. I am fit and I want to play.”
