But it could be a lot more embarrassing for the Red Devils, as the current runners-up should be sitting outside the Champions League positions in fifth place, reckons former Premier League referee Mark Halsey.
The new statistic is part of a new ‘True Table’ initiative by You Are The Ref, which has seen Halsey rate every Premier League match so far and judge where teams should actually be on the ladder.
United consequently gained an advantage, edging a win against West Brom at the Hawthorns despite Ashley Young appearing to foul James McLean in the penalty area.
