Man Utd reach unwanted milestone after conceding 46th league goal this season

Manchester United have reached an unwanted milestone for their troubles this season.

Everton’s second at Goodison Park today meant the Reds have conceded 46 league goals this season – more than any previous Premier League campaign.

According to @OptaJoe, last time we conceded more (47) in one season came in 1989-90 and I wouldn’t bet against us surpassing that figure before this campaign comes to an end.

Our biggest problem this season has been defending but David de Gea’s goalkeeping hasn’t met the extremely high standards he set himself.

His positioning for Sigurdsson’s goal was awful, but the same could be said about the defending for Richarlison’s acrobatic opener.
