David Moyes Record Breaker: Here are some of the most unwanted stats of the Moyes era
David Moyes is no longer the manager of Manchester United. We look back at some of the unenviable records achieved during tenure
David Moyes will leave Old Trafford with plenty of records to his name, however there are very, very few that he would want to have. Below are some of the stand out statistics that show where it all went wrong for the former Manchester United boss:
- West Brom win at Old Trafford (pic below) for the first time since 1978. Not one of the West Brom squad was born when they last won here.
- Everton win at Old Trafford for the first time in 21 years by a score of 1-0 with a goal from Brian Oviedo. They then went on to complete the double over United by winning at Goodison Park. It's the first league double over United for Everton since 1970.
- Newcastle United are having a wretched season, but they managed their first win at Old Trafford in 41 years by beating United 1-0 with a goal from Yohan Cabaye.
- Swansea secured their first ever win at Old Trafford by beating United in the FA Cup 3rd Round, and thus sent them out at the first hurdle for only the second time in 30 years.
- Following the first leg defeat to Sunderland in the Capital One Cup semi-final, it became the first time that United had lost three matches in the month of January for over 30 years.
- Stoke City beat United in a league match for the first time in 30 years.
- The first leg defeat to Olympiacos in the Champions League was their first defeat ever to Greek opposition.
- After 34 matches, United have a total of 57 points which is 27 points fewer than this stage last season. They also suffered more defeats at home this season (with six defeats) than in the previous three seasons combined, where they only lost five.
- And finally, Marouane Fellaini.
