Graphic: Interesting metric comparison between Calhanoglu and Man Utd star Fernandes

By Oliver Fisher -

There is no doubt that at the moment AC Milan’s Hakan Calhanoglu and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes are two of the most in-form playmakers in Europe.

So far this season Milan’s No.10 has racked up a combined 15 goals and assists in 24 appearances across all competitions, which has been a continuation of his exceptional form towards the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Bruno meanwhile – who is worth close to €90m as per Transfermarkt – has 24 combined goal contributions in 27 games across all competitions.

Below, the excellent @ViziFootball have compared the per 90 metrics of the two players and have overlaid them on a graphic.

The Rossoneri playmaker comes out on top in pass completion %, dribbles, interceptions, fouls drawn and shot creating actions.

However, United star Fernandes is better when it comes to turnovers, goals, deliveries into the box, assists, pressures, progressive yards, final third passes, xA and tackles across 90 minutes, as per the data.
