This statistic only helps stress the need for a new centre-back this summer.
It also highlights Manchester United’s problems at home this season without worrying too much about the seat designs at Old Trafford.
The Reds have conceded 27 home goals in the Premier League this season, which according to the Manchester Evening News, is our most in a single league campaign since 1969-70 (also 27) with two games left to play.
Home goals conceded in PL this season: Man Utd 27, Southampton 22.
Results between the two clubs this season: Saints 2 Man Utd 3; and Man Utd 9 Saints 0.
The Premier League: nuts.

Skipper Harry Maguire was absent through injury and is a doubt for the remainder of the season.
The England defend could miss out on a place in the team to play Villarreal in the Europa League final, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has kept his cards close to his chest on this one and we expect him to do the same right up until the pre-match press conference.
It sounds very touch and go with Maguire and we definitely miss him when he’s not in the side.
For all our complaints throughout the season, seeing Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof at the back against Liverpool, it made me question whether I had been harsh on Maguire since he joined the club from Leicester City.
Interestingly, Sky Sports claim Solskjaer has drawn up his shortlist for central defence as we approach the transfer window. It includes Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, however, it is Atalanta’s Cristian Romero who United are said to be most interested in at this moment in time.
