Manchester United were close to leaving Sheffield with a victory on Sunday but it would have been more than they deserved after going 2-0 down first. They had 11 shots to their opponent’s 12 and had three fewer corners despite having 10% more possession. Indeed, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was one of the many players whose performance was under-par.
The Manchester Evening News rated him 4/10, labelling his character and performance “timid”, while WhoScored agreed he had a bad game, giving him a 6.46/10 rating compared to his 7.53/10 and 7.86/10 rating in his previous two outings. However, it did just seem an out-of-character day for the 21-year-old who makes an average of 4.9 tackles per Premier League game, and that’s more than any other player in the squad, according to Who Scored.
Manchester United fans appear to have realised that too, because, when the Englishman posted an action shot after the game, most were sympathetic and supportive of the youngster when they replied. He captioned the photo, saying: “Showed a lot of character to correct the damage from first half but ultimately not enough. Onwards”.
