Watch: Eric Bailly’s unorthodox diving header for Man Utd is classic Eric Bailly


While Manchester United‘s 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace won’t live long in the memory, Eric Bailly provided one of the few moments of entertainment. 

Bailly has provided us all with so many amusing moments throughout his United career, from attempting a scissor kick to making a completely random backheel pass.

During their goalless draw at Selhurst Park, the centre-back managed to add to his hilarious highlights reel. 

After the ball was played towards Andre Ayew, the Ivory Coast international flung himself into the air before falling to the floor in dramatic fashion.

Unfortunately for Bailly, his headed clearance fell directly into the path of Palace forward Eberechi Eze.
