Aaron Wan-Bissaka starred for Manchester United on Tuesday as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side produced a stunning display to beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 away from home – and both Yannick Bolasie and Crystal Palace fans have applauded the defender.
Wan-Bissaka, 22, came into the match in good form after scoring his first goal for Manchester United on Saturday afternoon during a 4-1 win over Newcastle United – in what was his 50th appearances for the Old Trafford club.
Having kept Allan Saint-Maximin quiet on Saturday evening, Wan-Bissaka was tasked with keeping another Frenchman under wraps on Tuesday night – in the form of superstar Kylian Mbappe. But the £90k-a-week (Spotrac) ace did just that.
Indeed, Wan-Bissaka was excellent with Mbappe hardly having a sniff – as did Neymar. It was a poor PSG performance, with their only goal coming through an Anthony Martial mistake, as he headed into his own net. Wan-Bissaka posted on Instagram.
Manchester United took the lead from the penalty spot as Bruno Fernandes scored at the second attempt, after his first was saved – but re-taken with Keylor Navas off his line. Marcus Rashford then scored with aplomb, in the final 10 minutes.
Palace icon Bolasie responded to Wan-Bissaka’s post on Instagram, while Eagles supporters applauded their academy product for his performance at the Parc Des Princes – as United produced another stunning display against PSG.
Arron Wan-Bissaka was brilliant tonight. Still remember the day he left I felt sick. Man United have got some rb in them

It’s incredible how one of our youth graduates (Wan-Bissaka) has had Mbappe in he’s pocket tonight #cpfc

It's such a proud and surreal moment for me seeing Wan-Bissaka with that Champions League patch on whilst defending against Neymar and Mbappe for Manchester United. @cpfc_xtra @CPFC Our spider is all grown up. #CPFC

Can't believe @awbissaka chose to leave Palace to absolutely dominate in Europe's top competition.
What a baffling decision.
Fair play to the lad.#CPFC
