19 Games, 27 Chances Created – Should Manchester United Sign This Super Winger?

Manchester United have been crying out for natural wide players in recent weeks with them being forced to play Januzaj and Mata in wider roles. It comes as no surprise that United have been linked with Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon.

With Lennon, should he decide to join the club, being a replacement for Antonio Valencia, lets us have a look at the numbers and decide if it would really be an upgrade.

1. Creating Chances

Lennon is far more prolific as compared to Valencia when it comes to creating chances. This season, Lennon has created 27 chances including 1 assist in 19 appearances while he created 66 chances, including 7 assists, in 34 appearances last season. He also scored 4 goals last season and has one goal to his name this season.

Compared to that, Valencia has created only 20 chances including 2 assists in his 24 appearances while he managed to create 40 chances including 5 assists in his 30 appearances last season. While he scored only one goal last season, he has already bettered that tally by scoring twice this season.
