Proof Man United have no title chance

With 22 points from the last 24 available, Manchester United have quietly crept up the Premier League table after a poor start to the season. Although top four is the ultimate aim for Louis van Gaal – despite the £150m summer spend – a number of Old Trafford fans, and even some ex-professionals, have begun to outline the Red Devils as shock title contenders.

Even with a ten-point gap from the summit, occupied by Chelsea, a lack of European football may be a factor that plays into LVG’s hands, who might even be out of the FA Cup as well next week. However, this stat shows that United have no chance, with Jose Mourinho the king of Christmas number ones…

Any side managed by ‘The Special One’ has never failed to lift the trophy when top on the 25th of December. Good luck, Louis.
