Eric Bailly: What I really think about Man United summer signing

Predicted Benfica XI v Man United

Eric Bailly has pressed home the importance of qualifying for the Champions League round of 16 as quickly as possible ahead of Manchester United's clash with Benfica.

The 24-year-old signed for the Red Devils from Everton in the summer transfer window and has been a regular fixture in Jose Mourinho's first team since the move.

Asked by reporters who he thought the Eagles' most unsafe player was, Bailly said: "There are various players but, in my mind in particular, Pizzi, because he played at Espanyol with me". However, it was his reaction, coming out and facing the media and owning his mistake that showed that Svilar wouldn't be scarred by mistake. We want him to stay with us for many years - he's from our academy. It wasn't his fault this time but it still won't be any easier to swallow.

- Mourinho thinks it is not fair when scoring the goal or not scoring the goal makes the whole difference.


One of those mazy runs led to the penalty and when he had the opportunity to prove to Mourinho that he has the ability to be trusted unconditionally to start every week, he saw his penalty saved.

Crooks added: 'With Romelu Lukaku slightly off the pace and Rashford with a mandate to score within 70 minutes or he's off, it was left to Valencia to marshal his defence well enough not to give Tottenham a sniff of their goal and that's precisely what he did'.

There is a reason why Martial and Marcus Rashford have been so seamless in their rotation. But they have a lot of young players with a lot of quality. Saturday's result against Spurs suggests that Mourinho are arguably more effective.

With four wins from four games, United are six points clear at the top of the group and only a minor miracle will prevent them from reaching the knockout rounds for the first time since the 2013-14 season. "Let's hope this carries on".
