Manchester United boast best record in Europe, but still off pace in Premier League

Manchester United have an impressive record given that they have the current longest unbeaten run across the top five leagues in Europe, but their position in the Premier League is not quite reflecting that.

It was a difficult start to life at Old Trafford for manager Jose Mourinho as he struggled for consistency from his players.

The team dropped out of the title race fairly early on, but since the end of October they have gone 15 top-flight games without losing.

As the tweet from Squawka shows, United have gone one better than Spanish giants Barcelona, while Serie A outfit Napoli and the Red Devils’ Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur have the fourth-longest unbeaten run as it stands.

Despite United’s impressive ability to pick up points, they are still only sixth in the league standings and are a whopping 14 points adrift of leaders Chelsea.

They have closed the gap to top four, though, sitting just two points behind Arsenal, who occupy the final Champions League spot.
