MANCHESTER UNITED are now in the midst of their worst start since the David Moyes horror show of 2013-14 after dropping yet more points last night.
Jose Mourinho and Co were forced to battle from behind to salvage a 2-2 draw at home to Arsenal.
After 15 games, United now sit eighth in the Premier League table, with just 23 points – a massive 18 points behind rivals Manchester City.
Not only that, the Red Devils even have a NEGATIVE goal difference, with -1 – the first time the club have suffered in this way since 1986-87.
The numbers make for hideous reading for United fans, who at the same stage last season were second in the league.
While post-Sir Alex Ferguson struggles are hardly new, the nature of this season is likely to perturb supporters.

Mourinho has been at war with his players, most publicly Paul Pogba – who once again was dropped last night – as well as his own board in a soap opera of a season.
The last time United were lower in the league after 15 matches was five years ago under "The Chosen One" – when they sat ninth.
That year they went on to finish a lowly seventh – 22 points adrift of winners City.
United also slipped to ninth at this point in the season in 2001-02 under Fergie, but recovered to finish third.
