According to OptaJoe, the outcome of the result means United have conceded three plus goals in three consecutive games for the first time since December 1978 under Dave Sexton.

Also, United have lost as many as four of their opening six games of a season in all competitions for the first time since 1986-87 under Ron Atkinson – the season in which Alex Ferguson would later take charge of the club.
Up next for United is a trip to Turf Moor to face newly promoted Burnley this weekend in the Premier League.
