Former Manchester United player Paul Parker has hailed new signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka as the best right-back in the country — even better than Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Wan-Bissaka was outstanding against Chelsea on Sunday, and Parker has hailed the young right-back.

Speaking on the WeAreTheBusbyBoys podcast, the ex-defender said: “I watched him often last year, I just like what he does. People talk about Alexander-Arnold but he can’t defend like Wan-Bissaka, whose defending and positioning is very good.

“He wants to defend, he loves it. And every time he won a tackle [vs Chelsea] there was no doubt he won it cleanly. I’m judging him as a defender. He is the best right-back in the Premier League. There’s always a question about him going forward, he can learn that, he will get better and better.

“If you’re playing next to him as a centre-half, you’re saying to yourself ‘there’s my get out of jail card’ because he wants to make those tackles and wants to protect that right hand side. He doesn’t want to give anyone a yard or see anybody deliver crosses from his side of the park.”
