According to Sky Sports, the Red Devils have failed to win their opening three home league games of the season for the first time since 1972-73 when Frank O’Farrell was in charge.

The Irishman spent 18 months in charge at Old Trafford before he was sacked during a five year contract. You could say his experience at the club left him disillusioned with English football to the extent that he eventually left to become manager of Iran.
Hopefully things pick up for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he doesn’t fall down the same path.
Obviously it’s disappointing to drop points but it’s not the worst result we’ll suffer this season.
The biggest qualm we can have is that we didn’t look like we were searching for a win until the end and the game was extremely flat throughout — as though both teams were overly cautious and doing more to not concede than score.
Edinson Cavani made a golden opportunity just seconds after coming on as a substitute and we can look forward to seeing him again in the near future. He needs minutes and Anthony Martial has just one game left to run on his suspension.
