Manchester United academy graduates have assisted or scored 31 of their 32 goals this season

Manchester United v Partizan: Group L - UEFA Europa League

Manchester United fans haven’t had much to shout about recently.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side sit 10th this season, picking up just 13 points from their 11 matches so far.

That they are closer to the bottom of the table than the top-four just about sums it up.

But despite their nightmare start to the campaign, the club can at least point to one positive.

Since October 1937, the club have named at least one academy graduate in every matchday squad. That’s 82 years of always picking a player that has graduated from their famous academy.

And this season, those academy graduates are carrying United.

Following their 3-0 win over Partizan Belgrade on Thursday, a stat emerged that 31 out of United’s 32 goals this season (including pre-season) have either been assisted or scored by an academy graduate.

And to prove that it’s true, we’ve taken a look at every single United match this season.
