There was pandemonium in the away end at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday evening after Marcus Rashford scored in stoppage time to earn all three points for Manchester United against Hull City.

The 18-year-old came off the bench to net from close range following excellent work by Wayne Rooney.

The late winner sent the travelling United supporters wild - and the players wearing red reacted similarly.

Rashford went into the crowd - a celebration that earned him a booking - and he was closely followed by the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Then, from out of nowhere, Eric Bailly came skidding in from behind before jumping on top of all the players. (Scroll down to watch the video).

Bailly wins Man of the Match award - again

Bailly was outstanding once again on Saturday night and deservedly picked up the Man of the Match award for his efforts.

That’s now the third time in four matches the Ivory Coast international has secured the Man of the Match accolade, following his eye-catching performances against Leicester City and Bournemouth.

Bailly was also excellent in the 2-0 win over Southampton but was overlooked for the Man of the Match award on that occasion after Ibrahimovic scored a brace.

United surprised many football fans by spending £30 million on Bailly, a player Mourinho later admitted might not be ready for Premier League football.

But the 22-year-old has exceeded all expectations since arriving in England earlier this summer.

If the former Villarreal centre-back wins the Premier League’s Player of the Month award for August, it will have been fully deserved.

He won 100 per cent of his aerial duels against Hull and also produced four tackles, three interceptions and two clearances.

Not ready for the Premier League, Jose? Bailly is made for it.
