COMPARED: N’Golo Kante And Paul Pogba Statistically Compared Ahead Of Chelsea’s FA Cup Clash With Manchester United
Mar 12, 2017

Chelsea Featured Manchester United

N’Golo Kante rose to the fore in the miracles of all miracles last year, Leicester City winning the league. The Foxes had won the league title just a season after they escaped from the hands of relegation by former boss Nigel Pearson as the Tinkerman, Claudio Ranieri, led Leicester to a place in the Champions League and a league title to go with it.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez being the stars of this never-ending miracle, and it even led to Danny Drinkwater earning himself an England cap. However, take N’Golo Kante out of Leicester’s side, and it’s a whole different ball-game.

This season, they find themselves very much in the battle to survive in the top-flight of English football. Mr.Charming, Claudio Ranieri, being dismissed from his role led to the death of football, many believed, but Leicester’s struggles are perhaps highlighted by N’Golo Kante’s presence at Chelsea, as the blues sit 10-points clear at the top of the Premier League.

In Manchester, Paul Pogba became the world’s most expensive player when he re-joined Manchester United from Juventus for £89m. Many have questioned the price-tag, but Paul Pogba undoubtedly holds the potential to be world-class, and it’s fairly certain Pogba will be at Manchester United for a fair few years, given how much the club splashed out on him.

Many have been comparing the two Frenchman as the Premier League campaign as worn on, whether that be through price-tags, number of dabs, haircuts or any other joke the world of Twitter comes up with.

However, it’s about time N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba stats were compared factually. So, here we go. The data is from an article by Jonathan Northcroft, which you can read here.
