While some may jump to Paul Pogba’s defense that Manchester United as a team did not come to the party in Monday’s stalemate at Anfield, a lot more is expected of the world’s most expensive signing.
As reflected in the statistics from the barren draw against Liverpool, Pogba was more of a passenger with very minimal contribution to justify the huge investments made on him by the Red Devils.
For United to challenge for the title, they will definitely pray they do not witness another repeat performance from their French midfielder in other games going forward.
Here are five of the poor stats as published by Daily Star showing Pogba at his worse.
He created only one chance
He had only two shots-one blocked, the other off target
He made only 38 passes-his lowest figure this season (his average is 66))
He only touched the ball once in opposition box
His passing accuracy was 71% -well below his season average of 83%
