Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has welcomed the increased competition for places at Old Trafford.
"It does [give the manager options]," Bailly told MUTV. "It is a good position to be in, to have the defence fully fit and ready. It bodes well for the remaining matches ahead of us.
"I hope we can remain with a solid defence, as do the others, and we can keep some clean sheets in those games so that we see the season out well.
"I'm fine. I had a few difficult moments with my past injury but I am fully recovered now. I came back fitter and I hope I can take all the playing opportunities that present themselves now."
Bailly has scored once in 16 appearances for United this season.
