The Englishman is known for his robust nature in one-on-one situations against opposition wingers, and has named fellow countryman Sterling as his toughest challenge to date.

Wan-Bissaka told the Manchester United official website: ‘I’d say Raheem Sterling; those are the battles I’ve enjoyed the most.
‘He keeps going, just keeps on coming at you. Doesn’t matter if he doesn’t get past you in one challenge, he keeps coming back for more every time. That’s what I like.’
Wan-Bissaka has come up against Sterling twice in the Premier League this season, with Manchester United winning both games and silencing Sterling in the process.
Wan-Bissaka played in both of the Manchester derby victories against Sterling’s City this term
A 2-1 win for United at the Etihad Stadium in December was followed up by a 2-0 win at Old Trafford in March, which ended up being the Red Devils’ last domestic game before the coronavirus pandemic halted the club’s season.
Goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay gave United a precious win over their rivals, despite Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side sitting 12 points behind City in the Premier League table.
On the games against Manchester City, Wan-Bissaka added: ‘I’ve been happy with my performances in both league derbies and the results both times were just what we needed.

‘The second one was just before lockdown, and that was an incredible afternoon.
‘We were prepared for that game and we showed that as a team on the pitch.
‘When Scott scored the second goal, the whole stadium just went off and you could see what it meant to everyone.’
