World Cup winner Pogba, 26, picked up nearly a quarter of your votes, 22 per cent to be exact, to be crowned the top-flight’s most-overrated star.

The Frenchman may have enjoyed a resurgent second-half of the season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

But it would appear he’s still not done enough to shake off the criticism of his two-and-a-half years back at Old Trafford following his £89million move from Juventus.

This season, Pogba has played 27 times in the league, scoring 11 times – as well as two goals from seven Champions League games.


Meanwhile, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah – the Premier League’s second-top scorer this season and runaway Golden Boot winner last season – comes in second in the list.

The Egyptian winger, 26, picked up 19 per cent of Sun readers’ vote – despite his 17 Premier League goals this season placing him just one strike behind Sergio Aguero.

The £34.3m former Chelsea forward has also scored three times in eight Champions League games this term.

Tottenham and England midfielder Dele Alli came in fourth in the list – behind fellow North London star Mesut Ozil.

The Arsenal playmaker picked up 19 per cent of your votes, to Dele’s 17 per cent.

Elsewhere, Riyad Mahrez picked up six per cent of the vote, with five players tied on three per cent.

Hugo Lloris, Wilfried Zaha, Yerry Mina, Ryan Sessegnon and Roberto Firmino were the unfortunate five completing Sun readers’ overrated top ten.
