Manchester United fans will love this video that surfaced on the players celebrating with Eric Bailly after his man of the match performance vs Aston Villa.
The Ivorian defender was stunning in the narrow 2-1 victory and arguably won the points for his side with his sensational last-ditch block in the dying embers of the match.
That block meant Villa couldn’t score their equaliser and United ran away with all three points to go level with Liverpool at the top of the table.
Bailly hasn’t always been fit and available for his side but whenever he has been, he has thoroughly impressed the fans.
If he keeps up his form there’s no doubt Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not drop him even when Victor Lindelof recovers from his knock.

It’s clear to see how much the Manchester United players appreciate Bailly and as good as Lindelof has been this season, he’s never received such a reaction in the past.
The Swede international has his strengths but the former Villareal man brings a sturdiness to United’s starting XI that is otherwise missing.
The Red Devils may not end up winning the Premier League but it’s clear to see if they’re to put in a decent challenge, they’ll need Bailly fit for it.
