EPL: Wingers run out of ideas playing against him – James Maddison hails Man Utd defender


Leicester City midfielder, James Maddison has lauded Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka (AWB) after his superb performance in the Red Devils’ FA Cup semi-final victory over Brighton on Sunday.

Wan-Bissaka was a standout performer for Man United against Brighton.

He nullified the threat posed by Brighton’s Kaoru Mitoma, made two tackles, one clearance, and won all six of his ground duels.

The English star was also a threat going forward, looking much more composed on the ball than in previous seasons as Man United defeated Brighton 7-6 on penalty after the match ended in a 0-0 draw after 120 minutes at Wembley Stadium.

However, Maddison was impressed with Wan-Bissaka’s display against Brighton, saying many wingers run out of ideas when playing against him in a one vs one situation.

“AWB is ridiculously good at 1 v 1 defending. Probably the best in the world bar none.

“So many wingers run out of ideas when playing directly against him,” Maddison wrote on Twitter.
