Manchester United Have Gained More Points From Losing Positions Than Any Other Team In This Season’s Premier League

Manchester United Have Gained More Points From Losing Positions Than Any Other Team In This Season’s Premier League

Manchester United have gained more points from losing positions than any other team in this season's Premier League.

The Red Devils, who currently sit pretty at the top of the table, have fought back from going behind to gain a whopping 21 points this term - that's 11 more than nearest rivals Liverpool.

The Old Trafford side haven't claimed a league title since Sir Alex Ferguson bade farewell in 2013.

At the beginning of November, they looked ill-equipped to even think about ending that dry spell.

Not only had United won just two of their opening six league games - four of those had taken place on home soil and resulted in three defeats, one of them a 6-1 humiliation at the hands of Tottenham and Jose Mourinho.

Yet the 20-time champions have succeeded in turning their season around, displaying a noticeably resilient streak in league games on the road.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team fell behind in four consecutive away fixtures - against Everton, Southampton, West Ham and Sheffield United - but fought back to win all of them and rise steadily up the table.

Manchester United Would Be 15th In The Premier League Without Bruno Fernandes' Goals And Assists

published at9 days ago

United are unbeaten in 13 league games. They retained their unbeaten away record at Liverpool and then came from behind to win at Fulham. There has also been a marked improvement in their home form of late.

Solskjaer's side are two points clear of Manchester City, who have a game in hand, and Leicester. Meanwhile, reigning champions Liverpool are six points adrift of the leaders in fourth place.

Bruno Fernandes believes that the reaction of the United players to the draw with Leicester in December was the moment their season changed.

Fernandes had given the visitors the lead in the closing stages, but they were denied victory by a late deflected Jamie Vardy strike.

"After the Leicester game when we drew in the last minute, I was really happy to see the frustration on the team when I got to the dressing room," he told Football Focus.

"It was the first time I saw a real frustration after drawing a game.

"When I arrived, I could see that the team was growing up. Game by game, we started to do better and better."

United turn their attention to the FA Cup this weekend as they take on Liverpool in a fourth-round tie at Old Trafford.
