"Normally - I've played full-back and didn't have the pace of Wan-Bissaka - you would try to get out to Sterling because he's too quick for me, too good on the ball but Wan-Bissaka is almost like 'yeah, run at me - bring it on'.

"Sterling is one of the best three or four wide players in the world, but Wan-Bissaka's saying: 'Come on, you're not going to get past me'.

"In that position, I think any other full-back in Europe Raheem is away because of his pace, but even when you actually get past Wan-Bissaka, look at his legs coming from nowhere.

"I actually think Wan-Bissaka is the best one-on-one defender as a full-back in the world.

"I don't think anyone would get the better of him."

Wan-Bissaka has been impressive for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men since he joined the Red Devils from Crystal Palace last summer transfer window.
