Manchester United Fire More Blanks In Stalemate At Chelsea

It is the statistic that undermines the good that Manchester United have done in this season’s Premier League. They have failed to score a single goal in open play against opponents from the so-called big six.

Their only return in what is now seven attempts came from Bruno Fernandes’s penalty in the 6-1 home defeat against Tottenham. This was their fifth 0-0 draw and, although it was more watchable than some of the others, it illustrated why they lag so far behind the leaders, Manchester City. In the decisive matches, they have mislaid their creativity and cutting edge.

The draw did extend United’s club record unbeaten top-flight away sequence to 20 matches and, more importantly, it kept them six points above fifth-placed Chelsea. A Champions League finish is the most likely prize for United’s endeavours in the league. It remains well within their grasp.

Chelsea could be unhappier with the result, although it continued Thomas Tuchel’s unbeaten start to life at the club. His run now stands at nine games in all competitions, with six wins and only two goals conceded.
