Aaron Wan-Bissaka continues to display great form with an overwhelming performance last night, adding to a great deal of involvement in the 2-0 scoreline.

The Manchester derby ended with Man United ascertaining their supremacy on the scoreline, although the possession stat suggested otherwise.

The victory happens to be their 10th unbeaten game in a row, and the English side has been consistent for a while in maintaining clean sheets as well.

Wan-Bissaka was yet again a sturdy wall in the right flank, with Raheem Sterling secured deeply in his pocket. Almost all of the attempts to get forward by the City attacker was stopped right in tracks by the full-back.

Being able to nullify the threat of one of the potential attackers from a team placed second on the table at the moment, is a form worthy of notice and appreciation.

Accordingly, the England boss Gareth Southgate expectedly can’t proceed to ignore him and his potential on the right flank. His abilities both offensively and defensively gives the team an extra push and reassurance they require to perform efficiently.

Taking a glance at his stats last night, the 22-year-old had eight ball recoveries, winning eight tackles, and registered three successful take-on. The youngster also blocked two crosses and made three interceptions in the game, which sound enough on a derby match for the manager to install tremendous faith in the player.

 

Last night, a particular moment, just before the half-time half time whistle, overwhelmed the home crowd to a great extent, when the right-back, played the ball off his left foot elegantly that baffled Oleksandr Zinchenko, on a brilliant forward run made by him.

Accordingly, the supporters are grateful to the talented defender for his contributions last night, evident from the number of reactions which flooded Twitter following the Premier League clash, concerning the full-back.
