Gary Lineker took to Twitter to praise Aaron Wan-Bissaka for his great defensive display as Manchester United beat their archrivals Manchester City two goals to one on Saturday night.

The 22-year-old Wan-Bissaka has been a regular fixture in the Manchester United team since having signed for the Red Devils from Crystal Palace in the summer.

He has started 14 of Manchester United’s 16 Premier League games and played the full 90 minutes on Saturday night against City.

And former England star Lineker was clearly impressed by the defensive shift that Wan-Bissaka put in for Manchester United at the weekend.

Posting on Twitter during the game, Lineker wrote: “Goodness me Wan-Bissaka can defend.”

Manchester United will take on AZ Alkmaar in their final Europa League group stage game on Thursday night at Old Trafford.

    Makes me laugh Gary Linekers comments. Which player was in the team of the week 34 out of 38 times last season Wan Bissaka. He is the best defensive full back in the Premiership he is better defensively than Alexander Arnold. The only difference between them is Alexander Arnold is better at crosses. That is something Wan Bissaka needs to work on get that and he will be Englands fullback.
