Manchester Utd Conceded 17 Goals In Solskjaer’s 17 Games


The wheels have fallen off spectacularly from  Manchester United’s recovery in recent weeks, with the team having now conceded 17 goals in Solskjaer’s 17 games in charge and 46 in total in the league.

Manchester Unitetd crashed out of the FA Cup to Wolves in March, before a footballing lesson from Barcelona saw them dumped out of Europe on the end of a 4-0 aggregate defeat.

Consequently, United have conceded more goals this season than in any previous Premier League campaign as their travails under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continue to worsen.

Goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson in the first half at Goodison Park gave Everton a 2-0 lead at the break, leaving United with a mountain to climb if they are reel in the sides above them in the race for the Champions League.

That run has seen them go 11 matches without a clean sheet for the first time since November and December 1998, with Solskjaer himself playing a part in eight of those matches.

It still represents an improvement on performances under predecessor Jose Mourinho. United let in 29 goals in 17 games before the Portuguese was sacked on December 17 with the club languishing in midtable in the Premier League.
