‘Phenomenal’, ‘bargain’ – some Man United fans praise 21-year-old’s display vs Chelsea

A section of the Manchester United fans have hailed the performance of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who made his competitive debut for the club against Chelsea on Sunday.

The right-back has earned plenty of plaudits from the supporters since joining the Red Devils and he produced a good performance during his league bow against Frank Lampard’s side.

Wan-Bissaka managed to control the proceedings on the right side of the defence for most periods of the game and his display has certainly caught the attention of the club’s faithful on Twitter.

Here are some of the reactions……

Wan-Bissaka managed to comfortably handle the likes of Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic from a defensive point of view but he had a challenge on his hands against Emerson, who took up dangerous positions.

Elsewhere, the 21-year-old found himself in potential areas to cross the ball in the attack, but he was largely confined to dribbling and holding up the ball rather than bringing the forwards in to play in the box.

Nonetheless, the England youth international has the perfect environment to hone his skills and improvement on the attacking facet of the game should make him the complete package for the right-back spot.

United started the league opener on the back foot with the Blues commanding the possession, but they managed to find the breakthrough out of the blue through a well-taken penalty from Marcus Rashford in the 18th minute.

Following the break, the visitors pressed ahead in the search for the equaliser and that helped the Red Devils benefit from the counter-attack with three goals scored between the 67th and 81st minute of the encounter.

Anthony Martial and Rashford bagged the second and third goals respectively while debutant Daniel James came off the bench to complete the 4-0 rout in front of the Stretford End.
