Man United fans react to top Eric Bailly outing vs Aston Villa

Eric Bailly dropped an absolute defensive masterclass vs Aston Villa last night, leaving Manchester United fans absolutely buzzing.

The full-time scene at Old Trafford was one deserving of fans. Manchester United players would surround Eric Bailly after a monstrous injury-time block to deny Aston Villa a late-point.

Smiles on faces, belief in their eyes, joy in their hearts. Manchester United knew what a massive three points that was last night – and they couldn’t hide their emotions.

It was superb to see the team unity, belief and hunger in all of them, not least Eric Bailly, who last night, started in four consecutive matches for the first tine since 2017.

The performance from the Ivorian was a joy to behold. Forget the last-ditch block, look at the countless headers, brilliant tackles and top interceptions he’d make over the course of a hard-fought 90 minutes. It was a display similar to those we became accustomed to during a stunning debut campaign.

Credit to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for sticking with him, credit to the player for not giving up. I hate the cliche but it does feel like a new signing. A 100% Eric Bailly is genuinely amongst the best centre-halves in the country.

I guess the only question mark is *if* Bailly can keep fit. With him in our side, I feel far more comfortable. I just pray he can keep himself off the treatment table.

As you’d imagine, United fans would take to Twitter in their droves to heap the praise on the 26-year-old for his outstanding display vs Aston Villa. Rightly so, too!
