Manchester United slipped to 11 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, and eight behind the top-four, with a 1-1 draw against West Ham in a result that brings around an unwanted statistic for the Red Devils.
Jose Mourinho hasn’t quite cracked the nut at Old Trafford this season, securing just 20 points from his opening 12 matches, and a run of four consecutive draws at home has seen Manchester United set their longest run of drawn matches at Old Trafford in 36 years.
1980 – Man Utd have drawn four consecutive league games at Old Trafford for the first time since December 1980 (a run of five). Sketchy.

West Ham, Arsenal, Burnley and Stoke have all been able to take points away with them following a trip to Old Trafford, which isn’t a good omen for United as three of those sides are in the bottom-half of the Premier League standings.
With Tottenham, Sunderland and Middlesbrough to visit Old Trafford in the next month, there’s a strong chance that United’s woeful run at home will continue as Spurs have lost just once this season whilst Middlesbrough have already taken points from their trips to face Arsenal and Manchester City.
