Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United far from inspiring with these stats

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans are not going to be pleased with the set of stats recently revealed by Sky Sports.

Jose Mourinho‘s side have been far from inspiring all throughout pre-season and they’ve continued that way in the two Premier League matches played so far.

Although they beat Leicester in their first match, many were disappointed with how they got all three points.

A shock loss against Brighton made things worse and supporters were even more unhappy by the lack of fight for a result.

For fans who thought they may have been over dramatic with their criticism, these stats actually back their claims for better performances.

It’s still early days but it’s pretty damning how poorly the Red Devils have done attacking wise.

They’ve gone beyond the ‘toothless’ stage and it’s simply embarrassing now for Jose.

The stats are those for a club fighting relegation, not for one of the top clubs in the world who were last season’s runners up.

As low as attempts are, the touches in opposition box and it’s percentage is actually depressing to see.

If a lack of an attacking edge was covered up by solid defensive displays then there could be something to build on but United have conceded four times against Leicester and Brighton and haven’t kept a clean-sheet in the two games played so far.
