Phil Foden Fully Wiped Out Aaron Wan-Bissaka With Shoulder Charge And 'Absolutely Bullied' Man United Defender
| Last updated
Manchester City playmaker Phil Foden “bullied” Aaron Wan-Bissaka and sent the Manchester United defender flying with a powerful shoulder barge.
Pep Guardiola’s men outclassed their crosstown rivals and ran riot in a 4-1 demolition win at the Etihad on Monday.
Foden, 21, was hailed for his impressive performance in City’s crushing derby win, with the energetic England midfielder giving Wan-Bissaka a tough time.
With United 2-1 down going into half-time, Wan-Bissaka was caught by complete surprise by Foden after trying to keep possession early in the second half.
Footage of the 24-year-old United right-back being wiped out by Foden made the rounds on social media, with one fan saying Wan-Bissaka was “absolutely bullied.”

“I’d bring Wan-Bissaka off after that. You can’t be allowing Foden to do that to you and then get on with the game as normal,” one fan tweeted.
Another Twitter user posted: “Seeing Aaron Wan-Bissaka getting bodied by Phil Foden is just mental.”
Someone else commented: “Wan-Bissaka is hopeless!!! Absolutely got bullied then [by] Foden.”

What Foden did to Wan Bissaka and Maguire yesterday was catastrophic, they can never forget it in their lives 😅.— Nwanneka OmecheMcfc (@nwanneka_omeche) March 7, 2022
While a fourth fan said: “Foden pushed Wan-Bissaka like a bag of potatoes. Embarrassing.”
A fifth added: “Wan-Bissaka just got absolutely obliterated off the ball by Foden. Don’t ever tell me he deserves a start over [Diogo] Dalot.”
Kevin De Bruyne fired City into an early lead over United before Jadon Sancho pulled back a stunning equaliser for the Red Devils.
The 30-year-old Belgian playmaker then restored City’s lead and completed his brace, with United unable to rally back against the defending Premier League champions.
A second-half Riyad Mahrez brace ensured that City sealed an emphatic win, with Guardiola’s men now six points clear of Liverpool in the Premier League title race.
City’s 4-1 drubbing of United is a major blow to the Red Devils’ pursuit for a top-four finish, with Ralf Rangnick’s side now one point adrift of fourth-place Arsenal.
United will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they host Tottenham at Old Trafford.
City, meanwhile, will turn their attention to their Champions League campaign as they face Sporting CP in their second-leg last-16 clash at the Etihad on Wednesday.
