The embarrassing stat Pogba won't want you to see

The Frenchman has finally found his feet at Old
Trafford after a slow start, but leads the way in
terms of unsuccessful touches in the English top tier.
Manchester United's Paul Pogba has conceded
possession 50 times through poor touches this season -
more than any other Premier League player.
The France international returned to Old Trafford
having spent four years with Serie A giants Juventus,
winning four successive Scudettos, and struggled to live
up to the world-record transfer fee paid by the Red
Devils in August.
Only goalkeeper David De Gea has played more minutes
than the 23-year-old in the Premier League for United
this season, while the Frenchman has also made six
appearances in the Europa League so far.
Jose Mourinho's reliance on the commanding
midfielder has seen him settle into the Portuguese's
side and Pogba was key in United's 2-1 win at Crystal
Palace on Wednesday, scoring one and assisting the
other.
The Premier League joint-top scorers are close behind
Pogba in the unsuccessful touches department, with
Chelsea's Diego Costa registering 48 and Arsenal's
Alexis Sanchez 43.
The aforementioned duo have both scored 12 goals for
their respective clubs, with the Blues topping the
Premier League pile after 10 wins in a row. Arsenal,
who lost at Everton on Tuesday evening, sit six points
behind in third.
Elsewhere, Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has
been dispossessed the most number of times - 55 in 15
appearances - though is the only player in the English
top tier to register over 100 attempted dribbles - 115.
