Jose Mourinho's men have recorded a clean sheet in 26 of their 51 Premier League matches since the start of 2016-17 - more than any other side.

Manchester United have scored 28 goals in the Premier League this season, averaging 2.2 goals per game.

They are also the second most efficient team in front of goal, as they require just 6.7 shots per goal in the Premier League this season.
