Man Utd boost as Wan-Bissaka’s two-game ban reduced to one after Young Boys red

MANCHESTER UNITED’S defensive crisis has eased slightly with news Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be available for Champions League action earlier than expected.

The right-back has seen his two-game ban reduced to one following a United appeal to Uefa.

That means he will be available for the visit of Atalanta to Old Trafford on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old has already sat out one European fixture – the 2-1 thriller against Villarreal.

Wan-Bissaka was sent off in the first half of his side’s disappointing defeat by Young Boys last month.

The England U21 international caught defender Christopher Martins Pereira during the Group F clash.

He was slapped with a two-game ban for ‘rough play’ but United have successfully appealed against it.

The Red Devils are looking fragile in defence after injuries to centre-backs Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane.

Club captain Maguire is struggling to recover from a calf injury while first-choice partner Varane was crocked playing for France in the Nations League final.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces a daunting run of fixtures including two Champions League ties and a derby day with Liverpool.

The crisis could see Phil Jones thrown back into action for the first time since January last year.

The 29-year-old has endured an injury nightmare of his own since his last appearance – an FA Cup tie against Tranmere 19 months ago.
