Aaron Mooy faces one of his biggest challenges this weekend. The Caltex Socceroos midfielder and his Huddersfield Town side welcome Manchester United to Kirklees Stadium on Sunday morning (AEST).
The Caltex Socceroo has been a standout for the Terriers in their return to English football's top flight, but how does he compare with United's French superstar Paul Pogba?
We've broken down the Opta stats to find out.
Mooy has been an ever-present for Huddersfield, playing in all eight of his side's Premier League matches.
Pogba played every minute of United's first four Premier League games before injuring his hamstring in their Champions League opener against Basel.
GOALS AND ASSISTS
Pogba scored goals in Manchester United's first two games – 4-0 wins over West Ham United and Swansea – while also providing two assists in four matches.
Mooy opened his Premier League account in the 1-0 win over Newcastle United and has also supplied one assist.
Pogba has fired off far more shots though, with 12 compared to just three by Mooy.
Pogba averages 77 passes per game, compared to 57 by Mooy, probably due to the fact that Manchester United play a larger portion of their games in possession.
Both players have a very good passing accuracy, with Pogba finding a team-mate 85.76% of the time and Mooy 82.60%.
Pogba passes the ball into the attacking third 10 games per game on average, closely followed by Mooy with an average of nine passes per game into the final third of the field.
Mooy has put in five successful crosses this season, while Pogba is yet to manage one.
Both players have been heavily involved in this metric, engaging in 66 duels each.
When those stats are averaged out over games played, Pogba's value is revealed with an average of eight successful duels per game compared to Mooy's five.
