The Man Utd fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are surprised about this…
No duo in the Premier League has been criticised more than Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba this season.
Both players were signed by Man Utd in high-profile deals, and as a result – both carry a certain level of expectation alongside their name.
The Man Utd fans in the Tavern were expecting them both to come in and make an immediate impact – but unfortunately for them, it just hasn’t worked out that way.
Despite a strong start, Ibrahimovic has slowed d0wn as of late – and Pogba has seemingly never got going.
However, is the criticism of the pair unjust? Well, according to OptaJoe – it definitely is…
As per OptaJoe on Twitter, no player in the Premier League has created more chances for each other than Pogba and Ibrahimovic – signalling that the pair are quickly turning into one of the best duos in the Premier League.

Wow – the Man Utd fans in the Tavern were not expecting this.
However, rarely an optimistic bunch – they are noting that chances created are very different to chances scored – and neither Pogba or Ibrahimovic are, in their opinion, scoring as many as they should be this season.
Our landlord is slightly more optimistic, however, and has noted that if chances are coming – goals will inevitably follow, and he thinks that the Man Utd fans in the Tavern simply need to give the duo time; as this stat is impressive.
Man Utd fans – thoughts?
