Eric Bailly is expected to be out of action until the end of the year after injuring his knee in our pre-season friendly against Tottenham Hotspur. The Ivorian had missed the last part of the 2018/19 campaign, and the Africa Cup of Nations, after sustaining a knee injury in our 1-1 draw with Chelsea on 28 April.

When Ole spoke to the media after our match against Spurs on 25 July, he said: "He's had an operation and he'll miss the best part of four or five months, I would think. Hopefully we'll get him back around Christmas.

"It was positive news from the surgeon, he had the operation this morning. He was positive it was all repaired and that he’ll be fine."
