Manchester United fans were thrilled with Eric Bailly‘s impressive performance against Crystal Palace.

He has struggled with a knee injury in recent times and gave Jose Mourinho a scare as he went down clutching his knee five minutes into the first-half.

However, the Ivorian carried on and put in a spectacular shift at right-back, showcasing why is so important to the squad, especially as Antonio Valencia sat the game out through suspension.

Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.

Bailly has been incredible in every game he has played for United so far and it’ll be a massive loss once he’s out for five weeks with the Africa Cup of Nations in January.

Mourinho’s makeshift defence have performed very well, but I can’t wait to see how they play once he’s able to field a back four of his choice.

He was forced off the pitch in the 55th minute after struggling with his knee throughout the entire game and the extent of the injury remains to be seen, however if he’s out for weeks then Mourinho could even ask Ivory Coast to allow Bailly to sit out the Cup of Nations.
