Manchester United are, once again, not having their best season. The Red Devils are currently ranked just sixth in the Premier League table, risking to miss out on European football in 2016/2017.
Coach Louis van Gaal has received a lot of criticism for his team’s performances, and rumours about his possible dismissal and successor have not made it easy on the Dutchman and his players.
However, there’s hope for the Red Devils, who are just five points down from third-ranked Arsenal and would be able to help themselves a lot by beating rivals City in the Manchester derby on Sunday.
On top, the Old Trafford club are approaching an historical feat. United are leading the eternal Premier League table with 1.933 points (from 1992/1993 until now). Arsenal are a distant second with 1.728 points, while Chelsea are third with 1.686 points, just in front of Liverpool and Tottenham.
United are currently sitting on a goal difference of +10, scoring 37 goals and conceding 27. That feat has given them an eternal goal difference of +980, meaning they are approaching the magical number of +1.000!
No one really comes close, as indicated by the table below (via Transfermarkt):
