Premier League

Two Manchester United stars named in WhoScored team of the season so far

Manchester United aren't performing nearly as badly as the doomsayers suggest.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are only two points behind the Premier League lead, and this vibrant side has a lot more to offer.

From United's standpoint, there have been a few exceptional performers thus far, and two players have been named in the WhoScored.com team of the season.

Both Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes are in the Premier League's best performing team this campaign, according to the statistics website.

Are Pogba and Fernandes deserving of their starting spots?

Pogba and Fernandes have both had good starts to the season, even if they haven't been able to lead the team to league victories in the last two weeks.

Pogba has the most assists in the English Premier League thus far, with seven. On that basis alone, one may argue that he deserves a spot on this side.

Portugual international, Bruno Fernandes has four goals this campaign, all from open play, and his first league assist came at the weekend.

Both players have showed glimpses of their potential. Pogba, in particular, has room to improve and become a more dangerous goal threat in the last third.

France Midfielder, Paul Pogba does not have an assist in the last five matches in all competitions, and he'll be looking to rectify that when club football returns.

Pogba and Fernandes have had a good season, but if you exclude the Leeds game, where Pogba had four assists and Fernandes scored three goals, the pair's statistics aren't as impressive.

Between now and the next international break in November, there are several big games coming up, and it will be interesting to see if both Midfield Maestros Fernandes and Pogba can keep their spots in this statistical XI.
