Bailly appears to bring the best out of the Old Trafford skipper.
Harry Maguire has played every minute of Premier League football so far this season as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to trust his captain.
However, the manager is yet to find an ideal partner for the Englishman with Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe all playing alongside the skipper.
Manchester United have won 5 of the 6 Premier League games Maguire and Bailly started together but it’s Lindelof who remains Solskjaer’s preferred second-choice centre-back.
Man United’s centre-back pairings in the Premier League this season
- Maguire-Lindelof: 17 starts, 9 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats
- Maguire-Bailly: 6 start, 5 wins, 1 defeat
- Maguire-Tuanzebe: 1 starts, 1 defeat
