As may be seen from the Tweet above, United have been so poor (and Newcastle so good of late), that the one-time relegation candidates have now spent extra time main matches than Ralf Rangnick’s males.
The statistic is definitely stunning and reveals that even when the Purple Devils are getting the mandatory outcomes, they don’t seem to be dominating matches.
Even when the three factors is received, Manchester United are doing so from shedding, or drawing positions, or are profitable matches within the latter levels of a recreation.
Rangnick was eager to emphasize the significance of controlling matches when he mentioned how United might enhance on his arrival.
That’s to not say he hasn’t improved the crew however it’s secure to say he would have appreciated to have seen extra progress in an space he deems essential.
The statistic says the Purple Devils have spent 23% of their time in profitable positions inside a match, 58% of it drawing, and the remaining 18% shedding.

It’s been well-advertised that United haven’t been scientific this season and that is yet one more statistic that proves it.
The hope is they’ll construct on what Rangnick has accomplished and spend extra time profitable matches which can naturally give followers reduction.
