Aaron Wan-Bissaka produced a contender for miss of the season during the first half ofManchester United’sPremier League clash against Everton.
United dominated the opening 15 minutes but missed three good opportunities to take the lead.
Marcel Sabitzer saw an early shot deflected narrowly wide, while Jordan Pickford denied England teammate Marcus Rashford.
However, it was Wan-Bissaka who spurned the best of the early opportunities to put Man Utd ahead.
Antony hit the post with a left-footed strike from the edge of the box. The ball then fell perfectly into the path of Wan-Bissaka, who was being played onside.
Pickford was on the ground after attempting to save Antony’s shot and Wan-Bissaka simply had to tap home from close range.
But the right-back got the technique on his left-footed strike all wrong and watched in horror as the ball rolled wide of the far post.

Those being kind to Wan-Bissaka would argue that he had little time to react.
Despite that, surely every top-level footballer should be putting that chance away?
