The Pogba passing stats that make a mockery of Man Utd's £89m man

The midfielder was vilified on social media during Monday’s draw at Liverpool and the statistics this season paint a grim picture

Under-fire Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has the seventh highest number of failed passes for an outfield player in the Premier League this season, according to data from Opta.

Man Utd fans call out 'fraud' Pogba

The 23-year-old, who joined United from Juventus this summer for a world record €110 million (£89m), has struggled on his return to Old Trafford and was heavily criticised for an under-par display in the 0-0 draw at Liverpool on Monday.

In particular, his sloppy passes and unforced errors were highlighted by critics, and his passing statistics this season do not make for pleasant reading.

Only six outfield players have misplaced more passes than Pogba’s 80 this term - Danny Drinkwater (115), Damien Delaney (99), Christian Fuchs (96), Craig Dawson (89), Matthew Lowton (85) and Sam Vokes (80 from less passes).

Additionally, Pogba’s overall passing accuracy is only the 116th best in the Premier League from players who have featured in at least four matches in 2016-17.

To make matters worse, the ex-Juventus star has yet to register an assist this season.

It's safe to say Pogba will need to put in some extra hours on the training pitch to improve his passing if he is to start to justify his €110m pricetag.
