Manchester United Players Swarmed Eric Bailly After Heroic Last-Gasp Block
Manchester United defender Eric Bailly produced a vital injury time block vs Aston Villa - with his heroics being praised by teammates.
United ran out 2-1 winners at Old Trafford and it has taken them level on points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.
It was an enthralling encounter and Villa could've snatched an equaliser right at the end. Keinan Davis fired towards goal but Bailly flung his body in the way to clear the danger.
The Ivorian international was then mobbed by teammates at full-time in a great show of team spirit.
Fans have reacted to the embrace and they think it's one of the most wholesome moments of the season.
