On just his second ever senior appearance, Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka has taken his chance with both hands this evening, thoroughly impressing at right-back.
Making one of your second senior appearance in the Premier League is not an easy task, but to have to do so against the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku is a very daunting challenge.
However, the 20-year-old has been hugely impressive for the Eagles this evening and has everyone on social media raving about him.
FT: Crystal Palace 2-3 Manchester United
Just as Roy Hodgson and his players looked to be heading for a huge point in their fight for survival, Nemanja Matic unleashed a thunderbolt to cruelly deny them with seconds remaining.
The Eagles look set to at least take a share of the spoils having taken a two-goal lead through Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt.
However, Jose Mourinho’s men produced a spirited to come back as goals from Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and Matic broke Palace’s hearts.
What the Selhurst support can take as a consolation from this evening was the diligent performance of Wan-Bissaka, who at 20-years-old was very impressive.
Bissaka MOTM crazy performance

Have to give credit to Wan Bissaka though, he looks an incredible talent, barely any first team experience and he’s destroyed us for an hour so far 👏
