- Man United have surrendered a one-goal lead four times this season
- All the four matches ended up finishing in draws, costing United eight points
- Aston Villa are the other side who have badly been exposed, with their sloppiness costing them vital points
Man United beat Tottenham 2-1 to end a poor run of results this season, but a fresh dimension shows the side could be sitting third on the league standings if matches ended at half-time.
United are currently sitting ninth on the log with a paltry 18 points, six off the relegation zone after 14 matches.
However, it has now emerged the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-tutored side has surrendered an astonishing four leads at the break this season.
Among the fixtures, the Manchester outfit blew a one-goal lead including Wolves, Liverpool, Arsenal and Southampton.
That implies the EPL giants have given up eight points from the 14 opening matches of the new campaign at the interval, painting a grim picture of the side's sloppiness.
As such, they would comfortably be sitting third on the log with 26 points if all games ended at half-time, just three behind Liverpool who would still be top on the summit in that scenario.
Aston Villa are also badly exposed in the half-time chart, with Dean Smith’s wards second with 26 points as well - but in reality are 15th having lost 2-1 against Chelsea.
However, Arsenal would be the biggest losers in that regard, as the wouldbe sitting 11th with just 16 points - three less than what they have picked in actuality.
