When Manchester United splashed out around £50m for a young right-back in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, many questions were raised about the fee but those have been answered brilliantly by the youngster.

Throughout pre-season and now against Chelsea, he showed his tremendous capability of making successful tackles and not letting an attacker go past him.

At one instance in the first half, Chelsea were counter-attacking with Ross Barkley and Wan-Bissaka made a tremendous sliding challenge, showing his tackling quality and that earned him a huge round of applause from Old Trafford.
