Manchester United 0 Southampton 0 - Fascinating Facts

Looking at the score-line you might ask how any game that ends 0-0 can have anything fascinating to say about it!

But bear with me, there are some scorchers we`ve uncovered looking through the record and form books.

• Manchester United are on a winless run that now stretches, in all competitions to 4 games.

• The above winless run is the longest since May 2017 when, coincidentally, the forth game on that run was also against Southampton.

• The 0-0 draw was the first time Manchester United had failed to score at Old Trafford in 21 games, in all competitions, the last time they drew a blank was on 1 April when West Bromwich Albion were the opposition.

• Southampton have a good recent record at Old Trafford, the Saints last 5 visits have yielded 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss.

• In their last 33 competitive games Southampton have now failed to score in 16.

• Jose Mourinho has been in charge of Manchester United for 59 Premier League games during which the club have amassed 113 points, fewer in the same time period than Chelsea (138), Manchester City (136), Spurs (123) and Liverpool (117)
