Red Devils here in the Tavern are happy with how their side reacted after their Manchester Derby disappointment, as they continue to chase the runaway leaders.
Many people expected this Premier League season to be a close one, with Manchester United to be up there come the end of the season, but this isn’t how it’s turned out as a 2-1 loss in the Manchester Derby looks to have ended any hopes of ruining City’s title aspirations. But having drawn Sevilla in the next round of the Champions League, United fans will see the European stage as a possible route to a successful season.
Indeed, after the doom and gloom of losing to their rivals, things have been made even worse with news of Eric Bailly’s ankle injury being deemed as ‘serious’ by United boss Jose Mourinho.
The central-defender has failed to appear for the club since the start of November after picking up the injury on international duty with the Ivory Coast. As a huge part of the Red Devils defence so far this season, fans will be hoping he doesn’t spend too long out of the side, with them limited for options as January approaches.
With Mourinho never afraid to spend, here’s a look at THREE defenders that the gaffer should look to bring to Old Trafford.
