Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has blamed luck for his team’s recent results. The 27-year-old feels that the Red Devils are overdue a run of victories.
“I don’t know what to say. At the moment, luck is completely against us. We are playing very good and we deserve eight more points than we have.” Herrera said, according to ESPN.
Manchester United have made their worst start to a Premier League campaign in 17 years. The Red Devils have collected just 20 points from 13 matches so far.
United drew 1-1 with West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday. This was their fourth consecutive home draw, a feat the club has not repeated since 1980, according to Sky Sports.
However, it was Darren Randolph, West Ham’s goalkeeper who received the man of the match award. The 29-year-old made a series of outstanding saves for The Hammers contributing in his team’s solitary point.
United has suffered similar scenarios against the likes of Burnley, Stoke and Arsenal. Herrera pointed this out while claiming that the Red Devils should have had eight more points in the Premier League table.
“It’s unbelievable that we don’t have six or eight points more than we have but hopefully the luck will turn in our favour.” The former Athletic Bilbao midfielder added.
The man from Bilbao, Spain claimed that if United were able to convert half of the chances it creates during matches, then they will win every game 4-1.
However, Herrera feels that United creating a lot of chances is a good sign for the club. Things will soon turn around for the Red Devils if they continue doing good things.
