A selection of Manchester United fans have heaped praise on Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who produced a dominant defensive performance during the club’s 2-0 league win against Manchester City.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted for a 3-4-1-2 formation in the Manchester derby where Wan-Bissaka featured from the right wing-back position.
Unlike Brandon Williams on the other end, Wan-Bissaka predominantly occupied a position within his own half and he produced another strong defensive display against Sterling.
Wan-Bissaka ended the game with eight tackles with a 100 percent success rate and he also made three interceptions and two clearances, as per whoscored.
As such, a number of United supporters were clearly pleased with the display from the 22-year-old and some of them took to Twitter to express their views.
Wan Bissaka is just excellent mate

We absolutely mugged Crystal Palace off for Aaron Wan Bissaka. Just GBP 45m and keeping our Zaha sell on clause? I almost feel sorry for them.
An absolute colossus today, as he has been for most of the season. MOTM.

Wan Bissaka was different class today

The 22-year-old has shown an improvement on the offensive side of his game with United and he has come up with a number of quality crosses into the box over the past couple of months.
However, his primary job remains to restrict the attacking threat from the opposition and he had a comfortable derby, where he clearly got the better of Sterling on yet another occasion.
Based on his displays this season, Wan-Bissaka has already proved worthy of the £49.5m fee paid to Crystal Palace last summer and he should only get better with the age on his side.
