Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has claimed that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the best right-back in the Premier League, and said that Liverpool’s full back Trent Alexander-Arnold cannot defend like the Red Devils’ man.

​Wan-Bissaka was bought by United from Crystal Palace for a massive fee of £50million during the summer transfer window, to fix an obvious problem they have in one of the positions in their back line.

Parker, who played for the Red Devils for five years, is adamant that Wan-Bissaka is better of the two players and is the best in the league at the moment.

He told the WeAreTheBusbyBoys podcast: “I’ve said it many times, I watched him often last year, I just like what he does. People talk about the lad at Liverpool [Alexander-Arnold] but he can’t defend like Wan Bissaka, whose defending and positioning is very good. He wants to defend, he loves it.

“And every time he won a tackle [against Chelsea] there was no doubt he won it cleanly. You would think he had been there years. I’m judging him as a defender. He is the best right back in the Premier League. There’s always a question about him going forward, he can learn that, he will get better and better. He’s playing for a team who will allow him to do that.”

It remains to be seen if Wan-Bissaka can be consistent with his performances throughout the season as United will need their defence to cut out the errors if they are to have any chance of finishing in the top four.
