Ranking Man Utd’s squad by their minutes per goal or assist in 2019-20
While Manchester United have improved defensively under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, it’s their talented forwards that stole the headlines in 2019-20.
The front three of Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are exciting to watch and capable of putting opposing defences to the sword.
Bruno Fernandes has also been in fantastic form since joining United in January, averaging 2.29 points per game in the Premier League.
We’ve ranked the United squad by their minutes per goal or assist in all competitions in 2019-20, from worst to best.
Note: we’ve only included players that have registered at least five goal involvements for United in 2019-20.
12. Harry Maguire – 914.4 mins per G/A
United signed Maguire for his defensive skills, but the 27-year-old has also provided three goals and two assists in all competitions.
11. Fred – 564.1 mins per G/A
Fred has never been noted for providing goals and assists from midfield and the Brazil international contributed just six goal involvements in 46 appearances.
10. Scott McTominay – 408.8 mins per G/A
McTominay has one assist and five goals for United in 2019-20, including memorable strikes against Arsenal and Manchester City.
It’s been 93 days since we last heard Old Trafford erupt into noise as McTominay’s goal in added time secured the double over City. Just 10 days to go until we’re back. Can’t wait! pic.twitter.com/WNJpZGxtq5
