Find Out Where Man Utd Are Leading In The EPL

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has used more players in the first half of the Premier League than any other manager.

According to Prime Time Sport, Van Gaal has used 32 different players in the first 19 games of the season, and that’s four more than the second-placed Arsenal and Hull, who have used 28.

In third place we have the likes of Newcastle, Everton, Crystal Palace and Queens Park Ranger (26), while in fourth place you will see Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur, Sunderland and Leicester City (24).

Only four players have currently played 70 percent of the minutes played by United this year - though this isn’t the least, as Leicester City have just three players who have enjoyed that amount of game time.

Interestingly, Chelsea lead the way in this department with 10 players holding regular spots - and they have only used 20 players in the first 19 matches.

Van Gaal has ensured that the club has used the most home grown players too, which is 12 - four more than Arsenal.

If we take a look at the top five leagues in Europe, only Lyon and Barcelona have fielded more home grown players, while it’s hard to believe that four English clubs have fielded none.

Manchester United face West Ham United on Sunday and are currently sitting third on the English Premier League table.

Do you think that using so many players has been the reason for Manchester United not being consistent this season?
