Was great to see him finally unveiled yesterday and really excited to see him and Maguire as a partnership. He should dovetail nicely with the captain.

Hopefully he gets a good week of training in and can start against Southampton next weekend.

Tough game but he handled what they threw at us well, you can see his quality.

Champagne performance. It was a tough game and the whole defence was exposed but he won some real tough headers and to top it off got an assist.

One or two little moments on Saturday where he got caught napping a bit but this guys a rolls royce of a defender looks like he's playing the game in slippers with a pipe on the go.

His ability on the ball is not what was advertised.

Easy to pick at him after a disappointing performance but think he’s been very good since he arrived.

Came off for France last night with an injury.

He walked off the pitch looked like a hamstring issue as it went when he blocked a cross.

over stretched by all accounts, walked off, so hopefully just a couple of weeks.

So it's Lindelof and Bailly for these up coming tough fixtures.

Think Maguire is due back after the international break so hopefully it'll just be back to Maguire and Lindelof.

Groin injury being reported not thought to be to serious but you'd expect as a minimum that's a few weeks.

Not good with the fixtures we've got coming up.

Certainly hope it's less! To lose him in the upcoming games is a big loss. We suffered when Harry was out. Having both of them together, puts us in an enviable situation where we have 2 proven WC CBs taking charge of the back line!

I read that Maguire is out of the Leicester game? Not sure how reliable that is given the game is still a few days away.

Utd confirm he’s out for a few weeks no return date given.

Big games for him to be missing
