Man Utd's goalscoring woes laid bare as fans fume 'Patrick Star has same stats as Antony’ | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED'S dire attacking performances have been laid bare in damming stats.
The Red Devils have begun the season in woeful fashion and were most recently humiliated by bitter rivals Manchester City in yesterday's 3-0 derby defeat.
Erik ten Hag's side sit eighth in the table, having won five and lost five matches.
Part of the issues this season is the club's misfiring attack with United finding the back of net just 11 times so far in the Premier League this term.
Their top goalscorer in is midfielder Scott McTominay, who has three to his name and Bruno Fernandes with two.
The rest of their strikes come from unlikely sources, aside from Marcus Rashford, such as Raphael Varane, Diogo Dalot, Casemiro, Hannibal Mejbri and Christian Eriksen.

Taking a deeper look at the failing attack, Rashford is Man Utd's only attacker to contribute to goals.
He has played 847 minutes but managed a disappointing one goal and one assist compared to the 17 and five he got last campaign.
Ten Hag clearly does not know his best front three with Antony, Alejandro Garnacho, Anthony Martial and Rasmus Hojlund all coming in and out the team.
None of the quartet have taken their chance in the starting XI with all yet to get on the scoresheet or even register an assist.

Meanwhile, exiled Jadon Sancho also has the unwanted record with zeros across the board.
Fans can't believe the shocking stats, one said: "That’s relegation level performance."
Another added: "Is this binary code?"
A third joked with a vital Champions League game in mind: "Bayern Munich must be quaking in their boots."
Others commented those who also have no goal contributions this season, writing: "Spongebob's Patrick Star has the same stats this season as Antony."
The goalscoring problems are further highlighted by the fact Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United team scored 20 more goals in his final 48 games than Ten Hag managed in the same amount of fixtures.
