Another unwanted statistic for Moyes following United's loss to Liverpool

David Moyes Interview - 23/02/2014

It was the first time in 13 season that Manchester United failed to register a league goal against their fiercest rivals.

There have been several statistics banded about this season about Manchester United this season – notably about the unwanted records broken by them under David Moyes this season.

Following their 3-0 defeat at home to Liverpool, it meant that not only had their fiercest rivals had done the double over them this season, but they had also failed to register a goal against them in the league.

Though some people will feel that it is nothing to be ashamed of by not being able to score against a side that is second in the table – but they have two of the most prolific strikers in the Premier League in their ranks, and most of the other teams in the Premier League have managed to find the net against them this season.

18 teams in total. Every team barring Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have registered a league goal against Liverpool this season.

Spurs will have the opportunity to get on the scoresheet against Liverpool when they visit Anfield at the end of the month as they look to avenge their 5-0 defeat inflicted upon them by the Reds in December.

The last time United didn’t score against Liverpool in the Premier League was in the 2000/01 season when Gerard Houllier was in charge at Anfield, but they wouldn’t have lost sleep over it then as they were running away with yet another league title.

The only crumb of comfort to Moyes is that United have managed to beat Liverpool this season in the League Cup, only the player that scored that day - Javier Hernandez - wasn't available for Sunday's match.
