Watch: Man Utd’s Eric Bailly sends Isak to the shops with clever body feint

Videos

Eric Bailly provided the one real moment of entertainment during Manchester United‘s goalless draw with Real Sociedad at Old Trafford. 

United beat Sociedad 4-0 in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie but were fortunate not to go behind when Mikel Oyarzabal missed from the penalty spot.

After scoring a hat-trick in Sociedad’s recent 4-0 win over Alaves, Alexander Isak tried to get in behind Bailly in the 31st minute.

Despite being inside his own penalty area, the centre-back then showed incredible composure to send Isak to the shops with a clever body feint.

He almost got himself into trouble by trying another body feint immediately afterwards but was able to pass the ball to Victor Lindelof.
