Confirmed: Wan-Bissaka out through illness
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Aaron Wan-Bissaka will miss Monday night’s Premier League game with Arsenal as he is suffering from a bout of tonsillitis.
It will also be just the second game of the season that Aaron has been absent for, the other being in our 1-0 win against Astana in the Europa League two weeks ago.
“He [Aaron] has been ill over the weekend,”Ole said ahead of the clash with the Gunners, when speaking to MUTV.
“We had to make a decision yesterday and hopefully he’s back for Thursday.“
In the former Crystal Palace man's place, the Reds have lined up with a defence of Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Ashley Young, with Axel expected to fill the void at right-back created by Wan-Bissaka’s absence.
The youngster has also played in a full-back role against Arsenal before, during our trip to the Emirates at the end of the 2016/17 season, marking Alexis Sanchez.
