Former Manchester United assistant coach Steve McClaren has claimed Eric Bailly’s mistakes are costing Manchester United.
Bailly put the ball into the back of his own net in the seventh minute to give City the lead in their 2-0 victory at Old Trafford.
McClaren who was an assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United from 1999 to 2001, also blamed Bailly for Bernardo Silva’s goal that doubled Man City’s lead in the 45th minute.
“Bailly on both occasions is the culprit. Mistakes, bad, bad defending,” McClaren said. “Gundogan gets in front of him for the first Walker cross and should’ve scored.
“The second? He has a chance redeem to himself and he doesn’t.
“They are wicked crosses in and very difficult to defend, yes. Those are the mistakes he keeps making and it’s costing goals.”
