Manchester United star Paul Pogba has statistically proven to be head and shoulders above his midfield teammates despite some fans and pundits failing to warm up to him.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side playing some awfully boring football as they fail to create multiple chances and get shots on target, it’s become even more important to reanalyse the sensational Frenchman.
Pogba has been accusing of having a poor attitude and even of supposedly downing tools this season for not getting his dream move last summer.
However, the statistics prove otherwise despite his lack of minutes as he is currently enduring an injury ravaged campaign.
Solskjaer will certainly be hoping his star man returns soon so that Pogba can lead the team up the table from their current measly 12th place.
In the Premier League, Paul Pogba has created the same amount of chances (13) as Scott McTominay (6), Jesse Lingard (4), Fred (3) and Matić (0) combined.

It’s pretty embarrassing for Pogba’s teammates all things considered with Nemanja Matic in particular being incredibly poor.
It could be argued none of Scott McTominay, Fred or the experienced Serbian are expected to consistently create chances but the figures so far are far too low.
Especially given Pogba’s absence, one would imagine Solskjaer has asked one of the above to take on the creator role but all of them have failed though the young Scotsman has impressed in other areas.
