This season has been a disappointing one for our wingers with Nani, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young all struggling for fitness and good form. Last season Valencia was voted player of the season by his team mates and the fans, whilst Nani was voted player of the season by his team mates the year before, yet neither have set the world alight this season. Ashley Young, who was in the final year of his contract at Aston Villa, cost United £16m the summer before last, but has yet to justify that price tag.
So how do they compare with wide players at other clubs?
The stats above compare our players with Gareth Bale (Spurs), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Samir Nasri (City), Hatem Ben Arfa (Newcastle), James Milner (City), Adam Johnson (Sunderland) and Nathan Dyer (Swansea).
