Gary Neville believes that Aaron Wan-Bissaka needs a better right midfielder in front of him to help support him in attack for Manchester United.

The 21-year-old has been getting used to life at Old Trafford after having signed for the Red Devils from Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window.

Wan-Bissaka has started both of Manchester United’s games in the Premier League so far this season against Chelsea FC and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The right-back has produced some solid performances in defence for the Red Devils but he will be called upon to also offer something in an attacking sense in the seasons to come at Old Trafford.

And former Manchester United right-back Neville feels that the Red Devils are in need of better players in midfield to help support Wan-Bissaka’s attacking moves.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Neville said: “He’s got plenty of time to work on it [his attacking skills].

“My view would be that he’s the type of full-back that needs players around him to be able to pop it off [up the pitch].

“The problem that United have got at the moment is that they’ve got [Marcus] Rashford and [Anthony] Martial, who are biased towards the left.

“From Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s point of view, I think if he’s left on his own [further up the pitch], he’ll struggle. But a lot of full-backs would – they need people to play off.

“Ultimately, United haven’t got a right-sided player at the moment and that is an issue for him.”

Wan-Bissaka will be expecting to start for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Saturday with a home clash against his former club Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils – who finished in sixth place in the table last season – have taken four points from their opening two Premier League games this term.
