The strike came with United 2-1 up, and Wan-Bissaka’s goal made the result clear. There was still time for a fourth.

It wasn’t just a tap-in either. He pushed forward even with United leading, played a superb one-two with Marcus Rashford, before smashing the ball into the roof of the net.

The right-back sent a message to supporters after the win…

This was the perfect way to respond to critics who say he needs to improve his attacking output.

 

That was fair comment of course, but this was the ideal manner in which to show he is always adding to his game.

Wan-Bissaka is only 22, and so often gets judged as if he is a player at his peak. He has so much growth and room to improve still.

This will do his confidence wonders, and it was great to see.
