Ahead of the game against Arsenal, last night, I coyly suggested a 3-0 win would possibly lift Manchester United into fifth place in the Premier League table.
Unfortunately, at no stage at Old Trafford, last night did Manchester United look like achieving such a result.
In fact, despite taking the lead, courtesy of Scott McTominay’s first goal for Manchester United at Old Trafford, in his 25th home game, Arsenal, in the latter stages of the game, looked the more likely side to snatch victory.
So, where does this latest disappointment, a 1-1 draw, leave Manchester United?
Sadly, it leaves United in 10th position in the table which is, unfortunately, the clubs worst start to a season in 30-years.
Also, our return of 9 points from the 27 available is the first time, since 1989 / 1990 that the club have, at this stage of the season, failed to reach double figures points-wise. In that aforementioned season, United finished 13th.
Surely it is not an omen, is it?
