On a mixed night for Manchester United, Aaron Wan-Bissaka further established his case as a top star.
Wan-Bissaka has not put a foot wrong since joining United at the end of June.
He was outstanding in pre-season, and continues to be every bit as impressive in the Premier League.
Wan-Bissaka is a machine when it comes to defensive statistics, and his performance against Wolves was no different.
At Molineux, Wan-Bissaka touched the ball 115 times, via Whoscored.com.
This was just narrowly less than Wolves’ back three combined (124).
He had more touches than any player on the pitch, including Paul Pogba (110).
Wan-Bissaka also won nine tackles, more than the entire Wolves back five (seven).
Also by comparison, the rest of United’s team made 14 tackles, with Wan-Bissaka making a total nine of 23.
The less said about his sky high shot the better, but he was the only United defender to make an attempt on goal.
Wan-Bissaka’s one interception was matched by six United players, but bettered by none.
He only attempted one cross, which found its target. This is an area he can hope to improve on by simply making more crosses.
In a good place
Wan-Bissaka has settled instantly at United and could do nothing to prevent Ruben Neves’ long range effort.
He looks like a proper Manchester United player and we clearly did well to sign him this summer.
This weekend he goes up against former club Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.
Last year he helped keep United to a goalless draw in the same fixture.
This time we are very glad to be playing with him, rather than against him.
