Manchester United have conceded over 600 shots on their own goal this season, which is a statistic that sums up the side this season.

This season, Manchester United have conceded over 80 goals, which has not been fun for new goalkeeper André Onana.

The club is conceding an average of over 17 shots per game across the campaign, which is proof of the leaky defence that has been assembled at the club. Erik ten Hag must fix this problem.

This statistic has been mentioned many times over the last six months, and André Onana has had his say with Gary Neville about whether he thinks it’s a sign of a permanent issue or just a temporary problem.

“It’s a price to pay, and I would say everything is temporary,” Onana explained to Gary Neville on The Overlap when questioned on the statistic. “Last season, they didn’t face that, and I’m sure, 100%, next season, they will not face this amount of pressure.

Further, Neville then asked how this had happened, to which Onana said: Because it’s football. Because it’s football. Sometimes I think it’s just a moment. And we face a lot of injury crisis. We lost a lot of important players. But, of course, it’s not an excuse.

“It’s just a bad season for all of us. And we have to stay positive, as we are doing at the moment. And I know everything will be alright. Which is not this season. Of course, this season is difficult. It will be next one.

I don’t think it’s only for me, I think it’s for the whole club, the whole team, for the manager, for the staff, for the whole staff, for the medical part. Facing what we are facing is not nice for all of us, you know, but we are Manchester United, we don’t have, we cannot use this as an excuse, so we have to deal with the situation. It’s not only about me.
