How many gift goals does Manchester United score? How many conceded?



Manchester United fans will like this interesting display of who’s been the luckiest when it comes to receiving the most “gift” goals. And also what Premier League teams have been hurt by gift goals the most. I saw this on Deadspin, who got it from SportsMatrix.

They went through the Premier League season to this point and counted every time a team made an obvious mistake that led directly to a goal. And there’s charts and graphs. Numbers, stats and ratios.

As you can see from the chart (via Sport Matrix with a h/t to Deadspin) below Manchester United was given five gift goals and conceded three.
