A look at the weekend’s Premier League player stats and a Southampton man excelled, as did Joey Barton, while Anthony Martial had a day to forget.

Saints forward Nathan Redmond had a terrific weekend as he topped the player ratings, while he also registered in the top five of the ‘successful dribbles’ and ‘most chances created’ columns.

World-record signing Pogba was criticised on Monday night, but he was heavily involved in Manchester United’s weekend draw with Bournemouth and only Aleksandar Kolarov had more touches than the France star.

Pogba’s team-mate Marcos Rojo had a good weekend with regards to his passing, while Martial had another afternoon to forget, featuring in the top three ‘most dispossessed’ players.

Controversial midfielder Barton was impressive for Burnley in what could be his last game for the Clarets – he topped the ‘mosttackles and interceptions’ table.
