Manchester United fans had made fun of Leicester City playmaker James Maddison with Andreas Pereira comparison.
Maddison has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal and amid these reports, an unflattering stat has emerged showing the 24-year-old is creating as many goalscoring chances from open play per game as Pereira.
The stat does Maddison few favours considering he has suffered recent injury setbacks, though it is alarming to see his input compared with a United fringe player who spent last season struggling on loan at Lazio.
And United fans didn’t lose the chance to mock Maddison.
Always said he’s overrated, used to be compared to Grealish and Bruno. English tax at it again.

If you watch the game stats are sometimes irrelevant.
