Aaron Wan-Bissaka was included in the latest WhoScored TOTW, following an excellent display vs Aston Villa.
This is not a drill. Win their game in hand against Burnley and Manchester United will take control of their Premier League destiny.
Before then, though, is time for positive reflection. This Manchester United team feels like one that’s moving in the right direction. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were pretty good against an excellent Aston Villa on Friday night – winning 2-1.
What I love about this squad is its togetherness. You saw what it meant to each and every one of them at full-time. Something special is being built at Old Trafford. When one player underperforms, another steps up to cover for his pal. It’s this team mentality that’ll serve us excellently.
Against Villa, it was Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s time to shine. The right-back was the sole United star named in the latest WhoScored Team of the Week, with The Spider scoring an 8.27 rating.
Check out Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the latest WhoScored TOTW:
Wan-Bissaka has often been criticised for his struggles in forward positions, though recently, we’ve seen a major improvement in that regard. His cross into Anthony Martial for the opener was put in an area where only the United man could reach it. Our number nine would coolly head home to make it 1-0.
Defensively, Wan-Bissaka had a tough match-up against Jack Grealish and company, but the Englishman was more than up to the task. Sliding tackles, interceptions, excellent positional play, we saw it all on full display.
Now, it’s about continuing to develop the offensive part of his game and becoming that complete full-back we all know he can be. For that, I’d like a little competition. Max Aarons has been touted as a potential January signing. Let’s hope if the deal happens, Aarons will have the same effect that Alex Telles had on Luke Shaw.
