The scoreless draw against Southampton ensured Jose Mourinho's side will record their fewest victories in the modern era

Manchester United will set a new low in wins in a Premier League season when the club close out their 2016-17 campaign Sunday.

The Red Devils played out a scoreless draw against Southampton on Wednesday, keeping them stuck on 17 wins this season.

Even a win against Crystal Palace on Sunday will only take United up to 18 wins on the campaign, leaving them one short of the previous low of 19, set under David Moyes in 2013-14 and equalled last season by Louis van Gaal’s side.

Rather than racking up the wins, Jose Mourinho’s team have excelled at playing out draws this season. The scoreless affair at St. Mary’s was United’s 15th share of the points this year, which is also the club’s most in their Premier League history.

And it has also been a season of scoreless draws for the Red Devils. Wednesday’s was the sixth of the season, which is the highest number United have had in the Premier League era alongside the 2004-05 campaign.

Despite the setbacks, Mourinho’s side can qualify for the Champions League for next season if they can defeat Ajax in the Europa League final on May 24.
