It has been a mixed first season so far for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, with some excellent results overshadowed by a few disappointments.
Another such let-down arrived on Wednesday with a tepid 0-0 draw at home to Hull City, a result that left the Old Trafford faithful decidedly restless at the final whistle.
A win would have taken Mourinho's men within touching distance of the Champions League places; as it is, they remain in sixth place, four points shy of Liverpool in the final qualifying spot.
And part of the reason the club lie stagnant can be explained by an undesirable low coming with Wednesday's goalless stalemate.
2 - Man Utd have failed to beat 2 newly promoted clubs at home in a PL season for the 1st time since 1994-95 (Forest & Leicester). Struggle. — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) 1 de febrero de 2017
Failure to beat Hull means that United have fallen short against two newly promoted opponents at Old Trafford for the first time in 22 years.
An issue for the Red Devils has been their inability to create and put away scoring chances, despite enjoying control of the ball.
85 - Despite attempting 85 shots at home vs the three promoted sides this season, Man Utd have mustered just two goals. Bluster. — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) 1 de febrero de 2017
In 85 shots fired at home against Premier League new boys, a measly two have hit the net.
