Man Utd are BOTTOM of league table on goals scored by strikers as shocking stat lays bare huge Ten Hag problem | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED’S torrid form could be down to their misfiring forwards.
A shocking stat has revealed that their strikers have scored the least goals in the Premier League this season with just ONE goal.
The Red Devils have struggled in front of goal so far this term scoring just 11 times in their first ten league games.
And despite dropping £72MILLION on new star striker Rasmus Hojlund, he and those around him are yet to find the back of the net.
It’s only Marcus Rashford from the Man Utd attackers who has managed to register a Premier League goal this season.
Mega money Antony has drawn a blank alongside Hojlund while Anthony Martial hasn’t found his shooting boots either despite eight appearances.

In fact even bottom of the table strugglers Sheffield United have managed to feed their strikers enough times to register two goals.
Erik ten Hag will be concerned over his teams lack of a clinical front line which has been emphasised with recent results.
Man Utd have failed to score in both of their last two games while shipping three goals in each match too.

"On the pitch the players in shock, the performances woeful and a manager struggling in front of our eyes.
“We’ve seen it before, we know how it ends and we’ve had enough."
And Ten Hag himself has said he feels sorry for fans after the clubs Carabao cup exit at the hands of Newcastle.
It’s a tough trip to Craven Cottage to face Fulham up next for Man Utd as they try and re-track their off the rails season.
