Manchester United are better than their record, but not good enough

Jose Mourinho says he will be happy as long as Man United continue to progress each match they play.

Manchester United are currently sixth in the Premier League. After 14 games they're sitting on 21 points, a total that puts them closer to 20th-place Swansea (nine points) than first-place Chelsea (34).

Sixth place might seem bad enough, but it's the point total that's the real concern for United. They're averaging exactly 1.5 points per game, at this pace they'd finish with 57 points come season's end. Last year, 57 points got you ninth place, the year before eighth. In fact, the last time 57 points was good enough for sixth place in the Premier League was the 2003/04 season when Newcastle and Aston Villa finished tied for fifth and sixth on 56 points. If United don't start putting more points on the board, then even holding on to sixth seems unlikely.
