Paul Pogba’s first season in charge has, for the most part, been a disappointing one – much to the disappointment of the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern…
Having failed to live up to his price tag, Pogba’s performances have been under the microscope all season long. N’Golo Kante, Chelsea’s major summer signing, meanwhile, has been widely praised.
On Tuesday night, however, Kante put in a rare poor performance whilst playing for his native France, and as they so often have this season – debate quickly moved towards whether his poor display reflects his supposed inferiority to Paul Pogba.
Indeed, it is a debate that has frequently come up in conversation in the Transfer Tavern in recent months, but Kante has often responded with good performances – but his performance for France seemed to show a number of vulnerabilities in his game.
The fans on Twitter took it to another level of debate, with many using Kante’s display as proof of Pogba’s superiority. Take a look for yourself below…
Just a friendly warning there is still time to delete your Kante > Pogba tweets

Premier League/chelsea fan boys are the only ones who rate Kante above Pogba. Let's see how he does in the champions league next season.

because pogba should be scoring Hat trick erryday game?…… Kante is phenomenal but not in pogba level… T fee not his fault
Kante is basically a very sharp pen knife while Pogba is the ultimate swiss army knife.

The only thing Ng'olo Kante has more than Pogba is age…

Kante is overrated. A good player but that's all. He's not near the best midfielder in the world like some deluded Chelsea fans are saying.

Herrera better than Kante. Pogba better than Kante. Only Kante?

Premier league fans rate Lukaku over Sanchez and Kante over Pogba.
This is why English football has really fallen behind in recent years
