(Video) Eric Bailly makes crucial block against Burnley

Man of the moment Eric Bailly has come to his side’s rescue yet again. The Ivorian made another last ditch block against Burnley in Tuesday’s important Premier League match-up.

Coming into the match, United knew anything more than a loss would see them go top of the league table, above of arch-rivals Liverpool.

However, in what was always going to be a physical and tense affair, United could have found themselves 1-0 down had it not have been for a superb piece of last-ditch defending from Bailly.

Half-way through the match’s first-half, the flamboyant centre-back was forced to throw himself in front of a shot from Chris Wood.
