Manchester United and Liverpool delivered a fierce performance on Saturday, just as expected from the enormous fixture. Surprisingly, rather than celebrating the win itself, United supporters loved a particular moment between Eric Bailly and Mohamed Salah.
The visitors were outclassed by Jose Mourinho’s defensive tactics, and fell behind by two heavy goals from Marcus Rashford in the opening 10 minutes.
Though the Reds almost found themselves back in the match in the second half following a ridiculous own goal from Bailly, that hope was crushed by the final whistle. After almost constant draws in this fixture, the Red Devils finally secured a win by two goals to one.
However, despite almost costing his side 3 points during the outing, the Ivorian counter-intuitively glorified all thanks to his feet’s skills during an encounter with the Liverpool talisman in the first half.
And it’s safe to say that any prolific dribbler, including the Egyptian himself, would be proud of the United defender’s slick feet.

Though the Ivorian international scored an embarrassing own goal from a fairly easy clearance, the supporters won’t be too bothered thanks to this moment, coupled with an almost perfect defensive performance and all three points.
