The spotlight will likely be on the two stars who, in the eyes of many, have so far failed to live up to the heights their combined £110 million transfer fees suggest they should be reaching.

And in order to determine before the match which player is likeliest to make an impact, Opta-sourced, fantasy football site has compiled a stats comparison of the two players to find out who’s been the best this season.

Despite missing three months of the season, Ozil is still statistically better than Di Maria in six key areas of attacking play.

The Argentine can, however, claim to be better than Ozil in three departments – though one of these is the amounts of fouls he’s actually suffered this season.

See the key stats below, per 90 minutes played:
