Following Manchester United’s 2-1 home defeat to West Brom, many fans of the Red Devils are trying to understand why things are going so badly for David Moyes’ men at present.
The Reigning champions currently sit in lowly 12th in the Premier League, and doubters are beginning to question whether the title will be returning to Old Trafford come the end of the year.
Amid all the negative chatter, one statistic had focused many Manchester United fans’ minds this weekend.
The telling stat being repeated by crushed Manchester United fans is that their club have failed to score from open play in the Premier League since the opening day of the season.

United now haven't scored from open play in the league since the opening game against Swansea. Worryingly they never got close today. #mufc

United still hasn't scored from open play this season. That is absurd, and awesome.
