Aaron Wan-Bissaka comments on his developing partnership with Antony, demands strong finish to season

Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka believes ‘there is a lot more to come’ as his partnership with Antony keeps growing.

Many of United’s attacking moves have been created down the right flank in recent games, which shows the improving understanding between Wan-Bissaka and Antony.

When quizzed about it on MUTV, the defender said: “You know, the partnership is growing, and there’s a lot more to come from it now.

“It’s part of it [the game] and always having to balance it as well, both up the pitch and at the back too.”

With only two games remaining in the Premier League, he demanded his teammates finish the season strongly. 

“We’ve still got two more games to go, and that’s how we want to finish,” Wan Bissaka added. 

“We need to finish strong and take the three points with the last two games left.

“We’ve got to take every game step by step and after today, my confidence is up. We have faith in the team and we hope to do it again on Thursday.”

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Antony complement each other well

Wan-Bissaka is finally showing Erik ten Hag why the club splashed out £50 million to sign him from Crystal Palace in 2019.

Having played just four minutes before the winter break, he seemingly had no future under Erik ten Hag. 

However, he has fought his into the team since December and has kept Diogo Dalot on the bench.

The Red Devils have heavily relied on their left flank to create attacking opportunities in the last few years. 

Juan Mata, Daniel James and Jesse Lingard have operated as the right-winger but did not provide the same attacking threat that Marcus Rashford or Anthony Martial provided on the left flank.

Antony has been a breath of fresh air in that position, displaying his breakneck pace and not shying away from taking on defenders.

Wan-Bissaka is a sublime defender, and his presence behind Antony allows the Brazilian to keep a higher position to support the possibility of counter-attacks.

The former Palace defender has done enough to stay at Old Trafford next season. 

United will reap the rewards if he can continue improving chemistry with Antony down the right wing.
