In four Europa League games this season, have had three different players on the scoresheet. In 11 Premier League fixtures, they've had four. 

That surprising statistic is an indicator of just how much Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have struggled in front of goal this term, but it gets worse than that.

With just four scorers in the top-flight since the campaign kicked-off back in August - Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Daniel James and Scott McTominay - the Red Devils are joint bottom of the pile.

Only Crystal Palace have found the back of the net via so few players, with Norwich and Southampton, who are both in the relegation zone, above them with five each.

In fact, there is a clear correlation between the amount of different scorers a club has and their position in the table.

Liverpool have the most with 12 and currently sit six points clear at the top, while second place Manchester City are also second in the scorers table with 11.

Leicester and Chelsea, who find themselves third and fourth going into the weekend, both have nine different scorers so far this term, the joint-third best return.
