United celebrate a goal.

Which United men top our Premier League stats?

Sunday 31 May 2020 07:00

With the Premier League hopefully due to resume in June, we decided to have a look at the stats for the season so far.

For instance, have you wondered who has taken the most throw-ins, free-kicks or corners for Manchester United this term?

Who has made the most tackles or interceptions? 

What about shots?

Marcus Rashford leads the way for goals this season.

Well, here are the answers, thanks to FBREF.com, and there are some particular points of interest.

Paul Pogba may have only featured in seven league games this season but he has still made more through balls, (defined as being passes between the defenders and into open space), than any of his colleagues.

This probably highlights how much the Frenchman has been missed but, thankfully, he is training with the squad and should, hopefully, be available for the restart.

Marcus Rashford has also been our main attacking threat but was also sidelined, with a back problem, before the enforced pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The good news is he is also on the way back to full fitness, as his importance to the cause is clear when looking at the stats.

Indeed, the England striker not only leads the way in terms of goals but also in other areas such as successful dribbles, total shots and penalties.

Captain Harry Maguire's huge influence on the team is also highlighted, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Fred also recording some impressive team-high figures.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka's tackling quickly endeared himself to the United faithful.
