Man United were not exactly expansive and attacking against Liverpool.

With just 35% of the ball during the match, Jose Mourinho's side recorded the lowest amount of possession ANY Man United team has ever registered in a Premier League match.

Quite a stat, which may partly explain the almost bizarrely poor numbers Paul Pogba recorded at Anfield.

Some may say the United midfielder was a victim of Mourinho's ultra-defensive tactics. Some may say we're simply picking on the French midfielder.

However, regardless of the team's style of play and system, are these REALLY the stats you would expect from a man who cost EIGHTY NINE MILLION POUNDS?

He played a grand total of 38 passes

That's less than one every two minutes, from United's so-called midfield general. To give you some idea, that is his lowest passing figure of the season. His average number of passes has been 66 per game.

His passing accuracy was just 71 percent

It wasn't just his quantity of passes which was below par, it was the quality too. Pogba has been successful with an average of 83 percent of his passes this season - his 71 percent at Anfield was his lowest figure in any match this season.

He had 63 touches

Yep, his lowest figure in a game this season. His average? 89 touches.

He only won 46 percent of his 'duels'

The first time this season he's lost more duels in a match than he's won.

He had two shots

His average this season: 3.3 shots per match.

He created ONE chance

No words required on this one.

He had ONE touch in the opposition box
