Returning to Premier League action against Watford at Vicarage Road earlier, our Manchester United supporters streamed into the Football Transfer Tavern for today’s early kick-off after the international break.
Registering what in the end turned out to be a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion prior to the break, at the time of writing, United were currently keeping up with the pack in fourth place right now and only two points behind joint league leaders Manchester City and Arsenal.
If one thing is to cost Manchester United as we march on towards the business end of the season, it’ll be their lack of goals compared to the other teams in the upper reaches of the Premier League.
In the twelve league games played so far, United have registered 17 goals compared to City, Arsenal and Leicester who’ve achieved hauls of 26, 22 and 25 respectively.
That said, United have conceded fewer than these three teams, suffering just eight opposition strikes compared to 9, 9 and 20.
With these statistics in mind, we’re getting our Italian heads on today while devising a list of five Serie A stars that should be on Louis van Gaal’s radar for the January transfer window.
Could any of these five ‘do a Darmian’ my moving across Europe this winter?
