Aaron Wan-Bissaka has had a phenomenal outing for Manchester United since his arrival at Old Trafford.

The former Crystal Palace man joined United for a fee believed to be £45 million last summer, and has continued to dominate the Premier Peague as the best right-back.

Last season, before he arrived, the Englishman finished the campaign with a total of 96 tackles, which was the most for any player in the division, despite playing at a smaller side like Crystal Palace.

And in the just-ended campaign, the defender has shown he has grown better at his game, by finishing the same way he did the last.

Wan-Bissaka is again, the best tackler in the division, by finishing the 2019/20 season with a total of 129 tackles.

Only Wilfred Ndidi of Leicester City came the closest to Ndidi on the tackles table with 128, which is also impressive, while the injured Ricardo Pereira (also of Leicester) finished third with 119.

It is a phenomenal feat, and it shows what a machine of a man we have in Wan-Bissaka. We just hope this form continues!
