Man United fans pleased with solid Eric Bailly display vs Luton

Eric Bailly put in an excellent performance vs Luton Town last night, giving Manchester United fans hope going into a huge league game against Brighton this weekend.

Search the Eric Bailly tag on this website and the majority of posts are injury updates on the Ivorian. After a simply stunning debut season at Old Trafford, the centre-back just couldn’t keep himself fit.

We’re talking about the perfect partner for Harry Maguire, most notably because he has pace, awareness and the skill to execute the last-ditch tackle. However, time spent on the sidelines has seriously hampered his development.

Bailly hasn’t had a full pre-season in so long. He either misses the start of seasons or picks up an early injury which immediately places him at a disadvantage. This time around, though, we’re hopeful things will be different.

The centre-half is on a level playing field with his United teammates. Last night, he’d start against Luton and put in a commanding performance right from the get-go.

Although Donny van de Beek would win the Man of the Match award, for us, Bailly was by far the best player out there. He won tackles, completed his passes, intercepted dangerous Luton attacks and looked like his old self throughout.

I just echo the thoughts of United fans everywhere. For Bailly, it’s now about keeping fit. If the centre-half can get a good run of games under his belt, the worst should be behind him. I’d definitely start him against Brighton this weekend in place of Victor Lindelof, that’s for sure…

As you’d expect, United fans were thrilled with the brilliant display from the 26-year-old against Luton, with many calling for him to start this weekend.
