Premier League Champion says Man Utd defender bossed duel with Man City winger Raheem Sterling as he names his MW29 Team of the Week

Dealing with the threat of Raheem Sterling and Manchester City is one of the most difficult challenges a Premier League defender can face.

But, for the second time this season, Aaron Wan-Bissaka rose to the occasion and was able to help Manchester United earn bragging rights in the derby.

Wan-Bissaka won four tackles, 12 of 14 duels and made eight recoveries, while not once being dribbled past by Sterling or any other Man City player.

It was a performance that inspired a 2-0 win and earned the 22-year-old a place in Premier League Champion Alan Shearer's Matchweek 29 Team of the Week.
