Axel Tuanzebe Pockets Kylian Mbappe In Defensive Masterclass Against Paris Saint-Germain

Axel Tuanzebe Pockets Kylian Mbappe In Defensive Masterclass Against Paris Saint-Germain

Manchester United's Axel Tuanzebe was imperious at the back as the Red Devils beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the French capital.

With Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly not fit for the fixture, the 22-year-old made his first appearance since December and dropped a defensive masterclass.

His last game before tonight was a Carabao Cup tie against Colchester United and here he was up against one of the world's best in Kylian Mbappe.

But he kept the Frenchman incredibly quiet thanks to a solid performance. There was one instance where the PSG speed demon got in behind in a dangerous situation but Tuanzebe, one of the fastest players at United, darted back in and made a sensational last-ditch tackle.

The statistics highlight just how strong Tuanzebe was in his first outing of the year. He won every one of his duels in the air, had a pass accuracy of 92% and made a total of seven clearances.

Marcus Rashford was the match-winner once again at the Parc des Princes but Tuanzebe was the Man of the Match and his thwarting of Mbappe became the talk of the town on social media.
