So far this season we've committed the second highest number of fouls/game in the Premier League. Watford top the table. Spurs are 5th. Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and City are occupying four of the bottom six places. In 2015/16 we topped the table of thuggery. More fouls/game than any other team in the league. The season before that we were in 5th place. Interestingly, Mourinho's Chelsea were second from bottom in that season. You have to go all the way back to 2013/14 to find a United team that's outside the top 10 (14th place) and the previous season was the most recent time we occupied the moral highground of the bottom five (6th from bottom in 2011/12, 3rd from bottom in 2010/11). What's going on? Are Manchester United the new Stoke? Discuss. Stats from here.
