Almost ten years since their last Premier League title, Manchester United sit seventh in the table, with a Champions League spot already looking beyond them.
Should Ralf Rangnick’s side remain where they are, it would equal their worst ever Premier League finish.
But where does Manchester United’s lowest position rank alongside their rivals?
Planet Sport looks back at the lowest league finishes for each of the ‘Big 6’ in the Premier League era.
Despite the duo, United looked tactically inept at times under Moyes. They found themselves in 12th place after six games, which included a humiliating 4-1 defeat at the hands of bitter rivals Manchester City.
Ironically, United finished below Everton, Moyes’ former club, despite poaching their top goalscorer from the previous season, Marouane Fellaini making the switch for £27.5million in the summer.
The January addition of Juan Mata was unable to prevent United’s lowest finish since 1990 and Moyes was sacked in the April, with Ryan Giggs taking charge for the final four games of the season.
Quite a few of these coaches came in to manage midway through the season, which can be extremely difficult, although their records suggest they were not the right choice to save their respective teams.
