Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defends Manchester United full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka after Fulham struggles

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has swatted aside criticism of Manchester United full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and is convinced his attacking qualities will improve with time.

The former Crystal Palace right-back has just one goal and one assist in the current campaign, with 11 defenders creating more goals in the Premier League this season ? Andy Robertson leads the way with five.

United fans have been critical of Wan-Bissaka?s lack of attacking intent ever since he joined and he again struggled to provide any real thrust against Fulham on Wednesday.

The Red Devils have also been linked with bringing in a more adventurous, creative right-back, with Atletico Madrid?s Kieran Trippier ? who has five assists in La Liga ? and Norwich?s Max Aarons both rumoured to be targets.
But Solskjaer has passionately defended Wan-Bissaka, hailing the defensive side of his game, and believes he will continue to hone his attacking ability as he gets used to playing for a front-foot, attacking team.

?I think Aaron is one of the best one-against-one defensive full-backs in the world,? said Solskjaer at his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Liverpool in the FA Cup on Sunday.
