Manchester United fans were full of praise for injury prone defender Eric Bailly after his display during the slim win over Wolves in one of the Matchweek 16 games played on Tuesday night. Eric Bailly produced a very good performance for the Red Devils to help the former Premier League champions to a 1-0 victory over Wolves. Marcus Rashford scored the winning goal in the dying monents of the game. Ivorian international centre back Eric Baillystarted his second successive league game during the home clash with Wolves and he went on to produce a very good display thus leading his team to an important win in the race for the league title.
Eric Bailly has suffered from several injuries during his time at Old Trafford and that has been the major reason behind his lack of match action. The Ivorian player has not featured much for Manchester United this season due to his injury woes and the Red Devils fans would be hoping that he stays fit after showing a lot of his qualities in the last two league games. He was in the starting XI as Manchester United played out a 2-2 draw at the home of Leicester City in their last Premier League outing before the Wolves game at Old Trafford.
