United totals 26 points after their first 17 Premier League games, their worst debut of a season since 1990-91. They are 11 points away from the top four currently occupied by Liverpool, Manchester City, Totten ham Hotspur and Chelsea.

Following his report, speculations have arrived fever heights on the question of who will stir activities at Old Trafford.
