Following his team’s 2-2 draw at home with Fulham yesterday, Manchester United boss David Moyes has admitted that the result was “as bad as it gets”
Out of 25 games so far this season the Fulham game was the 13th they have failed to win. It is even more startling when you look at the number of shots, crosses and amount of possession Manchester United had during the game.
They attempted 31 shots at goal, 82 crosses and had 75% of possession, yet they could not see Fulham off.
At the moment United sit 9 points behind Liverpool in fourth place and compared to last season United have a massive 21 points less.
United boss Moyes said: “It’s been a bit like that this season. [Sunday] was as bad as it gets. We dominated.”
It’s hard to see where Moyes and United go from here, they had Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin Van Persie all on the pitch yesterday but as yet the 3 have not clicked and there is no sign of an up-turn in United’s fortunes.
With a visit to The Emirates next on the agenda for Moyes’ men, a defeat there could see them slip 12 point behind Liverpool in the race for the final Champions League place.
If that does indeed happen, I wonder how patient the United board will be with Moyes.
