Gary Lineker took to social media to single out Aaron Wan-Bissaka for special praise after he helped Manchester United to claim a 2-1 derby win over Manchester City on Saturday night.

The Red Devils produced an impressive display away from home as they made it back to back wins in the Premier League with victory against the defending champions.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in the first half handed the Red Devils the initiative, before Nicolas Otamendi’s late goal set up a tense finale.

However, Manchester United held on to claim all three points and continue their recent mini-resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 22-year-old Wan-Bissaka has been a regular fixture in the Manchester United team since having signed for the Red Devils from Crystal Palace in the summer.

He has started 14 of Manchester United’s 16 Premier League games and played the full 90 minutes on Saturday night against City.

And former England star Lineker was clearly impressed by the defensive shift that Wan-Bissaka put in for Manchester United at the weekend.

Posting on Twitter during the game, Lineker wrote: “Goodness me Wan-Bissaka can defend. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.”

Manchester United will take on AZ Alkmaar in their final Europa League group stage game on Thursday night at Old Trafford.
