Manchester United put in a highly convincing away game at last as they secured a 3-1 win against Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial all found themselves on the scoresheet as Onel Hernandez provided the consolation goal for the home side.

United could have made it two more but Tim Krul was exceptional in his saving of both Martial’s and Rashford’s penalties, denying United additional tempo and momentum in the first-half.

Krul was the stand-out performer for the Canaries while for the Red Devils their stat of brilliance came through Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The right-back was electric throughout the fixture and brought a massive attacking edge to their style. Daniel James’ pace was often complimented by Wan-Bissaka’s trusty presence by his side, permitting more dynamism into United’s overall offensive approach.

However, his moment to shine came in typical fashion as his tendency to tackle for fun was in full show yet again. The former Crystal Palace wing-back made 11 tackles over the course of the whole game on Sunday.

He had secured 10 in a previous encounter against Southampton, making him the only player in the Premier League to achieve this feat twice this season. The Englishman is in exceptional company as this stat was last achieved by a Manchester United player in 2012 when Patrice Evra was in lockdown mode versus Swansea City.

Wan-Bissaka is increasingly proving himself to be well worth the money and then some as his contributions keep piling on favorably for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

In addition to being crucial tactically, the sight of him executing perfect tackles almost every single time is immensely pleasing and thoroughly entertaining to watch.

Fans certainly commented about the same in their responses to the game on Twitter.

The Spider weaves his web very well.
