Nine stats prove Paul Pogba has been the Europa League's best player

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Ahead of Manchester United's Europa League semi-final second leg against Celta Vigo on Thursday night, we've taken a detailed look at Paul Pogba's stats in the competition, highlighting his utter domination of the tournament, ranking in the top 12 in as many as nine key areas this season. 
Our stats team at Oulala.com took on the task of revealing the Europa League's best player statistically this season and one name just kept popping up - Paul Pogba
Of the 777 players to have featured in the competition, the 24-year-old ranks first in four categories and in the top 12 in nine. 

The world's most expensive player is ranked first for both total passes (999) and completed short passes (763), while he also sits sixth for successful long passes (76) and 10th for key passes (20). 
Pogba also features top for shots, ranking first for both total shots (40) and shots outside the area (28). 
His dribbling has him ranked second for successful take-ons (34), while he has also performed well in the air when called upon, ranking third for aerial duels won (40). 
The 24-year-old has even put in a shift defensively, ranking 12th for tackles won (28). 
We think those stats are worth at least a dab...
