Manchester United have only been behind for TWO MINUTES in league matches this season.

Any fans who left early to beat the halftime bar queues at United’s away game against Stoke will have missed the only time their club have been trailing in a league game this season.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s 43rd minute goal for the Potters on September 9 was the first and currently last time Jose Mourinho’s side went behind in a domestic game in 2017/18. It was cancelled out in the 45th minute by Marcus Rashford, meaning United have spent a grand total of two minutes chasing games.
