Manchester United's Defensive Stats in the Premier League This Season

Manchester United have always had a poor record when it comes to defending set pieces. They always fall victims of conceding goals from set pieces especially when the game is in it's dying minutes.

Ole Gunner needs to make sure his boys train more on the dead ball situation, defending and scoring from corners is very crucial. Manchester United have some of the best players when it comes to air ability. When defending the likes of Harry Maguire and Rafael Varane are tall and good in the air. They should be able to easily deal with danger from set pieces. When it comes to scoring from a dead ball, Manchester United also have some prolific goal scorers good in the air. Cristiano Ronaldo ability in the air speaks for itself. The Red Devils should improve on the techniques and make the most from a dead ball situation.

Focusing on the Manchester United defence so far this season, they have managed just one clean sheet from seven games in the Premier League. They have conceded five goals so far. Harry Maguire and his defensive partners have faced 65 shots,22 of those being shots on target. The squad clearly has to work more on their defence. They have to prevent wingers from swinging in dangerous crosses into the box. If Manchester United defence become solid, they can easily win every competition they are in.
