MANCHESTER UNITED would be THIRD in the Premier League table if all games ended at half-time this season.

The Red Devils have blown FOUR leads at the interval under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this term.

That means United have dropped EIGHT points in their opening 14 games.

They have blown one-goal leads against Liverpool, Arsenal, Southampton and Wolves.

It makes grim reading for Solskjaer, who is facing the chop if his side loses upcoming clashes against Spurs and Man City.

United have won just four league games in the current campaign.

And they have now gone three matches in all competitions without victory after being held to a 2-2 draw by Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Villans are also badly exposed in the half-time table, with Dean Smith’s men SECOND with seven wins and just two defeats.

However, in reality, they are 15th – winning just four and losing SEVEN times.

Liverpool lead the way just like they do in the proper standings.

However, they have gained a massive ELEVEN points thanks to their second-half performances.

Jurgen Klopp has inspired his men to victory in four games, three of which they were set to lose and another they were destined to draw.

Two goals in the 87th and 94th gave Liverpool a 2-1 win at Villa earlier this month.

While a second-half comeback was needed against Spurs at Anfield in October.

Sheffield United looked good for a draw until the Reds scored a winner at Bramall Lane.


 

While Adam Lallana rescued a point against United at Old Trafford with an equaliser in the 85th minute.

Man City, Chelsea and Spurs are third, fourth and fifth respectively, no real difference from the norm.

While Southampton would be bottom of the table, four points worse off than their current predicament.
