Michael Owen lauds man United player who defended well Wilfried Zaha after Manchester United’s draw with Crystal Palace

After Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, Michael Owen praised Aaron Wan-performance Bissaka’s against Wilfried Zaha.

After his superb performance in Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening, Michael Owen feels no winger in the Premier League wants to face Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Bruno Fernandes gave United the lead in the second half, but Michael Olise’s spectacular free kick earned Palace a point at Selhurst Park.

Patrick Vieira’s team had an opportunity to win it in the dying stages of the game when Zaha was let through on goal, but a fantastic recovery tackle from Wan-Bissaka denied the Palace winger.

This season, Wan-Bissaka has battled for playing time under Erik ten Hag and has been linked with a move away from the club.

‘I think when the teamsheets came out Wilfried Zaha saw that Wan-Bissaka was going to be marking him in that game he would’ve been thinking, ‘oh no’. Because no player wants to play against the likes of Wan-Bissaka,’ Owen told Premier League Productions.

‘He played well and in fact Zaha during the first half switched sides, he wasn’t getting any joy out of him and not many wingers do get joy out of Wan-Bissaka.

‘From Manchester United’s point of view, you need your full-backs to be brilliant at the back but going forward as well, and that’s slightly where he lacks.’
