Man Utd End Premier League Season As Close To Relegation Zone As Top Of The Table

It has been a memorable season for English clubs. Manchester City are Premier League champions, Liverpool and Tottenham will play each other in the Champions League final and Chelsea and Arsenal are set to go head-to-head in the Europa League final.

But when all is said and done, Manchester United fans will remember the 2018/19 campaign for all the wrong reasons.

Sitting an incredible 32 points behind eventual champions Manchester City - and 31 points behind Liverpool - the club's disappointing campaign was summed up in a nutshell when already-relegated Cardiff left Old Trafford with three points.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing's brace sank Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in arguably their worst defeat of the season, and following the full-time whistle, a remarkable stat emerged on social media and it just shows how far behind United are to challenging at the top.

32 points behind Manchester City and 32 points ahead of their relegated opponents on Sunday? Not good.

Mason Greenwood's full debut was perhaps the only positive in a dreadful performance from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men, but it was an impressive outing from Manchester United's youngest ever player to start a Premier League game.

"He was brilliant, he was our best player by a mile and that says a lot about the kid." Solskjaer said after the final whistle.

"He came into the team with a lack of confidence and you can see that has take a total. I am not surprised by his performance, we know he is capable of that."

Manchester United are so far off the pace right now. How will they get back to the glory days?
