Eric Bailly did not feature in Manchester Uniteds FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham as the defender had been suffering with an illness.

United appeared to be missing Bailly as Dele Alli opened the scoring in the 11th minute at Wembley but goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera secured the win for Jose Mourinhos men.

The Ivorian centre-back has had a number of injury problems this season and has only managed 16 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils.
