Manchester United And Arsenal Named Two Of The Worst-Performing Premier League Teams This Season
Manchester United and Arsenal have ranked as two of the worst-performing Premier League teams this season, according to Sky Sports.
Okay, we know that three teams have been relegated this season -- Cardiff City, Fulham and Huddersfield Town -- but the publication had its reporters use a grading system to rate "each team's performance from A to F."
Both United and Arsenal received Ds alongside Southampton, with Oliver Yew saying that Gunners have not been "good enough."
He continued: "Arsenal, who have now conceded 50 or more goals in consecutive top-flight campaigns for the first time since 1982-83 and 1983-84, produced another lacklustre display against Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, leaving them staring at the prospect of finishing outside the top four a third straight year."
When it comes to the Red Devils, Charlotte Marsh said that the "stats do not make good reading for Manchester United."
She added: "They are winless in six away games across all competitions (D1 L5), their poorest streak on their travels since November 2014 (nine games). Overall, they have now gone five matches without a win in all competitions (D2 L3), their longest such run since December 2015 (eight games under Louis van Gaal)."
Manchester City and Liverpool ranked top of the grading scale after they both received As, having competed in a two-horse Premier League title race this season.
