Jose Mourinho’s decision to axe misfiring striker Romelu Lukaku looks to have paid off so far with United  looking a lot better going forward than in previous games.

The above stat courtesy of Squawka also highlights that despite Paul Pogba’s strenuous relationship with manager Jose Mourinho off the pitch the Frenchman is very much the focal point of this United side.
