Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Praises Aaron Wan-Bissaka After Manchester Derby Win

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heaped praise on defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka after his excellent performance in the win over Manchester City.

The Red Devils eventually prevailed 2-1 in an absorbing derby encounter. Goals from Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial put United ahead at the Etihad Stadium, with Nicolas Otamendi's header coming too late for the hosts.

United were able to cling on to the win due to some stellar defending, with Wan-Bissaka especially impressive at right-back. Following the game, Solskjaer was delighted with the full-back and also praised the club's other two summer signings, Harry Maguire and Daniel James, per MUTV (h/t Metro):

"Aaron is playing against… it’s [Raheem] Sterling out there, it’s [Riyad] Mahrez out there, it’s [Kevin] De Bruyne out there.
