Manchester United's Record Against The 'Big Six' This Season Is Awful

Manchester United drew 0-0 with Chelsea on Sunday afternoon, to continue a poor record about the rest of the 'big six' in the Premier League this season.

It was a generally dull game at Stamford Bridge, with the controversial non penalty decision in the first half the most interesting moment, although still more interesting than the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will be happy to have kept a clean sheet, and to have stayed six points clear of the Blues in the league, but won't be happy with another failure to beat a fellow member of the traditional 'big six.'

United have played seven games against Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City so far this season and haven't won a single one.

They lost 6-1 to Spurs and 1-0 to Arsenal, both at Old Trafford, and have drawn twice with Chelsea, and once each with Arsenal, City and Liverpool.

The results against the big six have seen Solskjaer's team drop 12 points more than Manchester City, and that's exactly how far behind Pep Guardiola's team they are in the league.

United have also only scored once in those games, despite being the top scorers in the Premier League so far this season, helped of course by their 9-0 win over Southampton.

What makes their failure against the 'big six' this season all the stranger is how different it is to their record last season.

The 13 times Premier League champions won five times against their 'rivals' in the 2019/20 season, including both games against City and Chelsea.

They also beat both those sides in the Carabao Cup, though lost to City on aggregate and lost to the Blues in the FA Cup semi-final.
