Stats: Manchester United awful offensively in Crystal Palace stalemate

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United put in another limp attacking display as they played out a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Man United’s goal drought has now extended to over five hours of football following recent stalemates against Middlesbrough and Manchester City.

Louis van Gaal has an abundance of attacking talent at his disposal but United were awful offensively at Selhurst Park.

The statistics following the game told you everything you need to know:

Van Gaal has made United defensively sound and difficult to beat but they have been awful at the other end of the pitch.

There have been murmurs of discontent over van Gaal’s style of play for a while now but the last few weeks has seen the level of scrutiny increase. The task for the Dutchman now is to not only get back to winning ways, but to make United more exciting to watch too.
