Manchester United have ended the debate once and for all over the player with the most tackles in the English Premier League in the recently concluded season.
The Red Devils have informed via their official website that last summer signing from Crystal Palace Aaron Wan-Bissaka narrowly beat Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi to the top tackler prize.
Heading into the final round of fixtures in the top-flight, Wan-Bissaka was on 124 tackles while the Nigerian had 123 tackles.
The two players racked up a joint game-high five tackles as Leicester City were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United at the King Power Stadium on Sunday evening.
“The full-back made five tackles during the 2-0 victory over Leicester City which concluded our domestic campaign on Sunday, taking him to a whopping 129 for the season as a whole,” United stated on their official website.
“That ensured he finished one clear of the Foxes’ Wilfred Ndidi (128), who was the Premier League’s most-prolific tackler last term.”
