Manchester United are not going to finish in Top 3 for the first time in Premier League
2. LOW POINTS EARNED
Even if United wins the remaining 4 games, they will be able to earn only 69 points, which is 6 less than their lowest in Premier League
3. OLD TRAFFORD’S PRESTIGE PUT AT STAKE
Old Trafford has become a 3-points gifting stadium. Apart from the top 6 clubs, Stoke City, Southampton, Crystal Palace, Hull City, Norwich City, West Ham United, Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion have all performed better than United at their respective home stadiums in one aspect or the other as depicted below.
4. HUMILIATIONS GALORE
Humiliations have been so common that so many teams recorded their first wins against Manchester United in the recent times
5. VERY POOR PERFORMANCE AGAINST THE BEST TEAMS
Manchester United performance against Top 5 teams have been so abysmal in the last 5 years. Incidentally, this table shows a decline in form against Top teams during Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure itself.
6. INABILITY TO ACHIEVE STABILITY
Even towards the end of the season, David Moyes had never finalized on his preferred starting line up. Manchester United have the maximum number of players utilized in the league (28) among the Top 7 teams.
7. LACK OF TRANSFERS ACUMEN
Sir Alex Ferguson always have spent less money to get high output from the players he has signed. David Moyes failed in that miserably as his signings Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini didn’t actually contribute as much as expected.
8. VERY POOR INTENT IN FRONT OF GOAL
Basis of scoring is to show more intent by having more shots per game. This key indicator has steeply decreased this year and it’s noticed that even under Sir Alex Ferguson last season, this dip was noticed.
