Manchester United dropped vital points at home to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, severely denting their hopes of a top four finish in the English Premier League.
Without consistent performers Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Red Devils just couldn’t create the number of chances needed to break down the Baggies defence.
Tony Pulis’ side frustrated Jose Mourinho’s men throughout in a typically pragmatic fashion and the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford were unable to bang home a vital winner.
It leaves United four points adrift of fourth in the table and six points adrift of third, albeit with two games in hand on that third placed team, Liverpool.
While they’re on an impressive 19 game unbeaten streak in the Premier League, it’s the amount of draws that have been so frustrating for supporters.
As this stat from Squawka shows, it’s been a particular problem at home over the last few months.

That’s pretty dismal home form for a team with UEFA Champions League ambitions and something that has to change next season. If Mourinho doesn’t solve their Old Trafford blues, then it’ll be another disappointing season for fans.
