The passing stat which shows Paul Pogba is the best in the Premier League logo 01-03-2017

Paul Pogba is the first Premier League player to complete 1,000 passes in the opposition half this season.

The French midfielder, who rejoined Manchester United for a record-breaking £89 million in the summer, beat Liverpool rival Jordan Henderson, who is ranked second in the standings, to the landmark.

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil and Manchester City's David Silva are the only two players to have surpassed the 900-pass mark in opposition halves, with Eden Hazard, Ander Herrera and N'Golo Kante the only three players in the 800-bracket.

Pogba has been instrumental in United's recent success having initially struggled to live up to his price tag at Old Trafford.

The former Juventus powerhouse now has four goals and three assists and is second to only David De Gea in the number of Premier League appearances for the club this season.
