Eric Bailly stuns fans with brilliant statistics vs Aston Villa

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star Eric Bailly put in a stunning show vs Aston Villa but the statistics below help fans appreciate him even more.

The Ivorian international was crucial in helping his side win all three points, particularly with his last-second block vs the Birmingham team to deny them what seemed to be an equaliser.

Bailly has put together a string of performances that has left supporters dreaming again of him keeping fit and leading the team from the back.

Many feel the former Villareal man is United’s best centre-back but his unreliability in terms of being available for selection means he’s never really gotten the chance to consistently prove that.

However, for now, fans will enjoy Bailly’s presence and the hope is he can finally move on from what has been an injury-hit career at Old Trafford.

It’s pretty impressive that despite his six clearances, Bailly still maintained a pretty impressive successful pass accuracy.

He’s proven he can play out of the back and pass well but he’s also willing to clear his lines when needed instead of forcing the issue.

In many ways, Bailly is the ideal, modern centre-back but must prove he can maintain his fitness or his career with Manchester United could come to an end despite all the talent.
