Manchester United’s running stats for 2018/19 season revealed
Manchester United’s running stats for last season have been revealed after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was critical of his players’ fitness levels.
The Norwegian criticised his players more than once for their fitness levels and the game against Everton exposed United’s running when the Toffees ran 8km more than United across the 90 minutes.
“We know our fitness is nowhere near good enough,” Solskjaer said after the 4-0 defeat at Goodison Park.
