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


THE THEATRE of Dreams has become an ongoing nightmare 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 once so-called fortress that is Old Trafford has been crumbling since the legendary Scot quit the club in 2013.

In fact they 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 who occupy 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, occupy fifth with 239 points.

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

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

Last season under Jose Mourinho they managed 47 but they once again struggled this time around with just 36.

Solskjaer has a huge job on his hands to transform his squad full of flops and win back the United faithful.

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