Bailly believes Blind's influence has helped him adjust to the demands of English football.
He told manutd.com: "I'll just say that it was easy for me to settle at the beginning. Thanks to my team-mates and the technical staff, it's gone very well.
"I'd like to thank my team-mates for all the help they gave me. I'm standing here today thanks to them, with the Manchester United Player of the Month award.
"Daley has a lot of experience in the Premier League and the combination between us two has worked very quickly.
"I think it's precisely the manager's strategy: there's a good connection between us. It's important for the defence and I hope it will go on like this."
