AARON WAN-BISSAKA’s Manchester United resurgence continued in the 1-0 away win at Wolves.

The 25-year-old has found himself out of Erik ten Hag‘s team this season, with Diogo Dalot preferred.

And there has even been murmurs that he could be on the move in January.

But his performances against Nottingham Forest and Wolves could see Ten Hag keep hold of the right-back.

He was strong in a tackle and not shy to get down the channel and overlap Antony.

Wan-Bissaka was constantly checking his shoulder while defending crosses, tracking his runner well.

It was Marcus Rashford who scored the winner for the Red Devils.

The 25-year-old dropped to the substitutes bench for disciplinary reasons and replaced by Alejandro Garnacho.

However, Rashford’s disciplinary lasted just 45 minutes as he was subbed on for Garnacho, and he scored the winner to keep Ten Hag’s men on course for the top four.

The Red Devils No10 played a one-two with Bruno Fernandes before firing low under Sa.

Rashford found the back of the net again in the 83rd minute, but saw his initial effort be saved after a stupendous turn.

However, Sa’s save rebounded up and off Rashford’s arm and into the net, which VAR quickly chalked off.

Christian Eriksen, meanwhile, had an afternoon to forget for United.

The summer signing started alongside Casemiro but struggled to make an impact.

Eriksen’s lack of final ball saw him be subbed for Fred in the second half, who ultimately brought more energy to the midfield.

The win pushed United into the top four and two points ahead of Tottenham, who play on Sunday against Aston Villa.

Here’s how SunSport rated the Red Devils’ performance.

David de Gea – 8

Didn’t have to do much in the first half but was called into action in the second half.

Denied Ruben Neves from a free-kick, producing an outstanding save.

Pulled off a reactionary save in added-time to stop Wolves from equalising.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7

Another assured performance since returning to the side.

Strong in a tackle and showed a willingness to get forward.

Tracked livewire Rayan Ait-Nouri well in the late stages of the game.

Redeeming himself under Ten Hag and could be playing himself into a key role in the team, taking his chance in Dalot’s absence.

Raphael Varane – 6

Went about his business. Was the only real height United had in defence.

Luke Shaw – 6

In ahead of club captain Harry Maguire at centre-back.

Worked well alongside Varane.

Tyrell Malacia – 5

Rarely tested in the first half.

The half-time substitution of Adama Traore saw him be ran ragged.

Casemiro – 6

Clever performance. Broke up play well. Got away with avoiding a yellow in the first half for a tackle on Neves.

Was denied by Sa with a headed effort in the opening 45.

Eventually booked for a tackle on Daniel Podence.

Christian Eriksen – 5

Struggled to get into the game. Couldn’t carry the ball.

Was subbed with half an hour to go and replaced by Fred.

Bruno Fernandes – 5

Really struggled to make things happen in the final third.

Did, however, manage to find Marcus Rashford with a one-two for United’s opener.

Alejandro Garnacho – 5

Was denied by Wolves keeper Sa in the first half.

Subbed by Ten Hag at half-time, rather cruelly, for Rashford.

Antony – 5

Poor headed effort at the end of the first half, which could’ve handed United the lead.

Anthony Martial – 5

Completely missed an open header just on half-time.

Subs

Marcus Rashford (for Garnacho, 45) – 8

Was dropped for disciplinary reasons but was brought on before the start of the second half.

Got the opener on the 76 minute mark with a low finish.

Thought he had a second with less than ten to go, however the goal was ruled out for handball.

Wonderful turn to create the goal scoring chance, though.

Super sub. Booked late on.

Fred (for Eriksen, 60) – 5

Showed some nice touches but ultimately struggled to make an impact off the bench.

Was booked for a foul on Nathan Collins.

Donny van de Beek (for Martial, 80) – 5

Not enough time on the pitch to make an impact.

Anthony Elanga (for Antony), 92) – N/A

Was a late sub for Ten Hag and didn’t get much time to impress.

Harry Maguire (for Fernandes, 92) – N/A

Was brought on to see out the win.
