Manchester United's Premier League Win Ratio Without Penalties Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Is Surprisingly Low

Manchester United's Premier League Win Ratio Without Penalties Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Is Surprisingly Low

Manchester United have only won five games in the Premier League without a penalty being awarded since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's permanent appointment in March.

Solskjaer has helped turn United's form around in recent weeks and 'The Red Devils' are on an eight match unbeaten run in all competitions.

One key factor in United's goal output this season has been penalties with United receiving ten in the Premier League.

2-1 vs Watford on March 30th 2019

Solskjaer discussed why United are winning so many penalties back in September and put it down to the ability of his side's forward players.

"I think it's the type of players we've got," Solskjaer told The Mirror in September. "They've got quick feet, good skills and most of them haven't even been debatable."

United had the chance to move within one point of the top four on Sunday when they took on Everton at Goodison Park.

Bruno Fernandes scored for the third consecutive game to draw United level just past the half hour mark.

'The Toffees' thought they'd won it in the dying breath before a VAR interruption.

Calvert-Lewin thought he had snatched a late winner but his second of the game was scratched off with Gylfi Sigurdsson judged to have obstructed De Gea.

Do you think United will make it into next season's Champions League?
