Man United home draws
For the eigth time this season, Manchester United were held to a draw at home on Saturday.
Old Trafford has traditionally been a fortress and a place where wins come easy for the home team, but that hasn’t been the case this season.
Through a cocktail of bad luck, poor finishing and heroic goalkeeping, United have been unable to break teams down at home this season.
They failed to score against a resolute West Brom side at the weekend despite dominating nearly the entire game; it was like a deja vu of the Bournemouth game and many others.
While Mourinho can’t keep hiding behind the performances of the opposition keepers, it can’t be argued that United have performed pretty well at home in most of these games.
Saturday was another example of a solid performance which just lacked the magic to unlock a tight defence in the crucial moments.
Most draws in PL era
For all the talk of Mourinho taking United forward, they really aren’t performing much better than they were under Van Gaal, truth be told.
And the stats don’t lie: Saturday’s draw means Mourinho has the lowest home win percentage of a Man United manager in the Premier League era.
40% – Manchester United's home league win % this season is their lowest in the Premier League era (40%, W6 D8 L1). Ransack.
