Jose Mourinho’s worrying record at Old Trafford

Jose Mourinho’s worrying record at Old Trafford

By Susan

The records seem not to be getting under Jose Mourinho than that of his two predecessors. Both David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal can boasts of better home records than we are witnessing under Mourinho at present.

While the home front has been most teams’ advantage the reverse has been the case for Man United this season under Mourinho, the records are not fascinating and we could be set for our worst-ever Premier League home record with just six wins at home.

The 0-0 draw with West Brom over the weekend made it the eighth league match we have dropped the crucial two points at home this season. Our team have struggled to see off matches against the lesser teams and that could well account for our “dying-minutes” efforts to finish in the top four which is probably beyond us.

The last draw means we have garnered just 26 points from a possible 45 after playing 15 home matches, the tenth best in the top-flight, even Leicester City boasts of more points at the King Power Stadium.

Yes we have been unbeaten in the last 19 matches and we are always quick to boast of that but all those draws at home have been our undoing, especially considering the fact that we have struggled against the likes of Hull, Bournemouth, West Brom, Stoke, Burnley and West Ham.

Those are teams that we should have easily defeated at home  but we have had to share the spoil with them despite dominating such games. A lack of creativity in the final third had cost us more points even though our defence has been solid, Mourinho is more about defending anyways.

Moyes claimed 30 points at home in his only failed season at United following an unprecedented seven home losses, Van Gaal had 44 points in his first season and four lesser than that the following season.

Mourinhi still need five mire points to better Moyes record but with games against Everton, Chelsea, Swansea and Crystal Palace we can only hope we get five points fom those matches.
