Talking Points: Aston Villa v United


Goal difference boost

Not only did the Reds close the points gap on Leicester City, we further ate into the Foxes’ goal difference advantage reducing the gap to just six. United, now on +26, have netted 15 goals in the league since the restart and lost just three. Brendan Rodgers’ men meanwhile have scored six and conceded four, and currently sit on +32, with that last-day meeting between the two sides continuing to look hugely important in the race for a top-four spot. Chelsea, who currently lie third in the table two points ahead of us, are on +17 goal-difference wise.

Spot on

United were awarded a 13th penalty of the campaign when referee Jonathan Moss blew for a foul by Ezri Konsa on Bruno Fernandes, before the midfielder scored from the spot himself. That total is the most to be awarded to any team during a Premier League season, only matched by Leicester City in 2015/16 and Crystal Palace in 2004/05.
