Marouane Fellaini was named captain of Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Sunderland, much to the surprise/disgust of the supporters. But how did he get on?
Only Ander Herrera (76) and Paul Pogba (78) completed more passes than him for either side. Although only Herrera was more accurate with his passing (91.6%) of the three, with Fellaini boasting a 90.9% accuracy rate.
In terms of chances created, only Luke Shaw (4) created more chances than Fellaini (3) for either side.
Only Herrera (9) recovered possession on more occasions than Fellaini (8). No United player was successful with more tackles than Fellaini (3).
All in all, it wasn’t a bad showing for the Belgian.
