Man Utd would be joint-top of table with Liverpool if games ended at half time.. highlighting major issue for Solskjaer – The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED sit second of the table, level on points with Liverpool and ahead of champions Manchester City.

It sounds idyllic compared to the current predicament Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in – and it would be the reality if matches ended at half-time.

That's right, if all 100 of this season's Premier League matches were cut in half with the score taken at the break, United would be challenging for the title.

In the first half, the Red Devils have scored eight goals and conceded just twice and would have 22 points from ten games.

But the actual table tells a far different story.

Manchester United sit seventh with three wins, four draws and three defeats.

They have scored 13 goals, conceded ten and have a total of just 13 points instead, 15 adrift of leaders Liverpool.

That is in part due to surrendering half-time leads against Wolves, Southampton and Arsenal – games they ended up drawing 1-1.
