Manchester United lead the whole of Europe in key category after win over Barcelona

A head-turning statistic, highlighting the remarkable uptick in fortunes enjoyed by Manchester United under the watch of Erik ten Hag across the season to date, has come to the fore on Friday.

Ten Hag and co, of course, were back in action on Thursday night.

After being held to a 2-2 stalemate at the Camp Nou a week ago, the Red Devils welcomed La Liga table-toppers Barcelona to Old Trafford, eyeing a spot in the Last-16 of the Europa League.

And, when all was said and done in Manchester, this is precisely what the evening’s hosts went on to secure.

This came as 2nd-half goals on the part of Fred and Antony cancelled out Robert Lewandowski’s early spot-kick, en route to a 2-1 United triumph.

Their latest victory on Thursday, however, did not only prove significant in keeping the Reds’ European endeavours alive for the time being.

And such stellar endeavours, as alluded to above, have since given rise to the most remarkable of statistics.

As per analysts Opta, Erik ten Hag’s United have racked up more wins across all competitions than any other club in Europe’s top-five leagues to this point in the season.
