Man Utd’s home record since Fergie retired is awful – they’re worst of Premier League top six

By | 14th May 2019

THE THEATRE of Dreams has become the house of horrors for Manchester United since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Teams were once terrified to play at Old Trafford during the glory days but now rivals can sleep easy knowing they have a wonderful chance of leaving with a result.

Just ask relegated Cardiff – who stunned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side with a 2-0 away win on the final day of the season.

The former fortress that is Old Trafford has been crumbling since legendary Scot Ferguson quit the Red Devils in 2013.

Research carried out by show that United have the worst home record in the top six, sitting 47 points behind rivals Man City.

Pep Guardiola’s champions unsurprisingly top the charts with 279 home points in the last six seasons, 17 points ahead of Arsenal in second.

Liverpool are third with 253 followed by Chelsea who have picked up 251.

Tottenham, who have played at Wembley following their final game at White Hart Lane in May 2017 before moving back to N17 this season, occupy fifth with 239 points.

And then United sit bottom of the pack with a pitiful 232 points.

Their worst season at home came in the campaign following Fergie’s departure, in which they picked up just 30 points at Old Trafford.

Under Jose Mourinho in 2017-18 they managed 47 but they once again struggled in the most recent season with just 36.

Solskjaer has a huge job to transform his flops and win back the United faithful.

And he’s already laid down the law by scrapping the club’s end-of-season team debriefing after their shocking defeat by Cardiff.

Some players were upset as they already booked travel plans to meet up with family AFTER the final team meeting before the summer break.
