Sunderland fans have been left angered by Chris Maguire’s absence in the League One team of the season so far, via Whoscored.com and Sky Sports.
With a break in football due to recent events, it has given many media outlets a chance to look deeper into statistics and performances of teams and players.
Whoscored.com continue to create in-depth statistics regarding League One and along with partners Sky Sports, they have released the best eleven in the league up to this point.
AFC Wimbledon keeper Nathan Trott is between the sticks, having performed well during his loan spell from West Ham United.

The young keeper sits ahead of Luke’O’Nien (Sunderland), Michael Ihiekwe (Rotherham), Robert Dickie (Oxford) and Joe Jacobson (Wycombe).
In the middle of the park, James Henry (Oxford), Liam Walsh (Coventry), Daniel Barlaser (Rotherham) and Ronan Curtis (Portsmouth), all gain a place. 15 goal striker Armand Gnanduillet makes it into the front two, featuring alongside Ivan Toney, who has netted an impressive 24 league goals this term.
One absence from the side is Maguire, despite the Scotsman averaging 2.3 key passes per game this season.
Looking at the team via a post on Sunderland’s official Twitter account, fans have reacted to Maguire’s name not being included and below are just of the tweets…
