Carra names Man Utd man as ‘best one-on-one defender in the world’
Posted On March 10, 2020
Jamie Carragher thinks Manchester United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka “is the best one-on-one defender as a full-back in the world” after their 2-0 victory over Manchester City.
Goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay secured a huge victory for Man Utd on Sunday with the result keeping the pressure on fourth-placed Chelsea.

Wan-Bissaka earned praise for keeping the likes of Raheem Sterling at bay and Carragher was very impressed by what he saw.
OPINION: Man United actually spent £50m on a ’20s full-back
“It’s almost become a massive rivalry this,” Carragher told Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.
“Yes it’s the two Manchester clubs but it’s Raheem Sterling against Aaron Wan-Bissaka. I actually think that you can talk about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having a good record against Pep Guardiola but what can Pep do next time?
“I think something Pep has to do next time is not put Raheem Sterling up against Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
“Normally – I’ve played full-back and didn’t have the pace of Wan-Bissaka – you would try to get out to Sterling because he’s too quick for me, too good on the ball but Wan-Bissaka is almost like ‘yeah, run at me – bring it on.’
“Sterling is one of the best three or four wide players in the world but Wan-Bissaka’s saying: ‘Come on, you’re not going to get past me.’
“In that position I think any other full-back in Europe Raheem is away because of his pace but even when you actually get past Wan-Bissaka look at his legs coming from nowhere.
“I actually think Wan-Bissaka is the best one-on-one defender as a full-back in the world. I don’t think anyone would get the better of him.”
