Top Five Manchester United Moments in 2016/17 (Part – 2)

2016/17 was not a vintage Manchester United season for many reasons - for one, they finished 6th in the league and secondly, they did not score a ton of goals like they often did in the past, in fact they only managed to net a paltry 54 goals in 38 games - which puts them a lowly eighth in the 'goals for' column, behind Bournemouth.

The overhaul at Manchester City has begun and it is not an incoming transfer that is reflective of this. It is the number, quality, and age of the City players whose contract comes to an end at the end of June, which signal the change that Pep Guardiola is ushering in.
