Wan-Bissaka, who signed from Crystal Palace last summer, also leads the way when it comes to blocks (according to football stats site FBREF.com), making 101 across the 38 games, which places him one ahead of Norwich City’s right-back Max Aarons.
Those personal accolades will be a source of great pride to the defender, who admitted earlier this year that one of his individual targets for 2019/20 was to emerge as England’s first-choice right-back.
When interviewed by the club’s official matchday programme, United Review, back in March, Wan-Bissaka explained that it was his ambition to overhaul Leicester’s Ricardo Pereira – who then led the way – before the season was done and dusted.
“I think I’m second at the moment,” said Aaron,
“I’m happy with that for now, just to be right up there. But first place is the target by the end of the season!”
