There’s no telling the difference Aaron Wan-Bissaka has made to Manchester United fans’ well-being. We say that because at least five supporters spontaneously combusted at the end of last season, never to be seen again, after watching Ashley Young – who was heavily criticised in 2018/19 – gradually crumble.
Fortunately, there’s a new level of confidence and security that permeates from United’s backline nowadays. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof have already formed a strong enough partnership that may reduce any chance of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling ever suiting up together again, and Wan-Bissaka has singlehandedly saved his full-back counterpart from suffering further abuse at the hands of cyber trolls. What a man.
If that wasn’t enough however, the man affectionately known as Spiderman by his teammates because of his abnormally long, dexterous legs helped United secure a rare home clean sheet in their 4-0 drubbing over Frank Lampard’s Chelsea side on Sunday.
Wan-Bissaka took to Twitter to tell fans just how much his Old Trafford debut meant to him…

We wonder if he knows just how important he is to fans?
