Recent signing Alex Telles looks set to make his Premier League debut at Old Trafford today as Manchester United face West Bromwich Albion, but how do his strengths and weaknesses match up to those of Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams?

In this department, Shaw and Williams score very similarly, with much higher results than Telles in all but the progressive passing category, where Shaw only scores 9% and Williams 4% versus Telles’ 69%.

Telles scores by far the highest in shot volume with an impressive 95%, compared to Shaw’s 60% and Williams’ 68%, but by contrast the Englishmen both received the ball far more frequently in the box, at 86% and 60% for Shaw and Williams, respectively, versus Telles’ 27%.

Telles comes out top on aerial duels, despite being a couple of inches shorter than Shaw, at 72% vs. 49%, with Williams struggling at 10%.

He’s not a title-winning one, and probably needs to do a little bit more to crossover into great full-back, but … Shaw offers a degree of balance and calm in a side often short of both.

However, in terms of defending quality, Shaw ranks lowest of the three with 24%, with Telles on 69% and Williams the highest on 79%.

Telles registers 50 and Williams a surprisingly low 13%.
