Manchester United title defence over in 233 days

Published Add your comment

Manchester United's title defence came to an end just 233 days after winning the Premier League title - due to arch-rival Liverpool's narrow 2-1 win over West Ham on Sunday.

The Red Devils have failed to seriously challenge for the Premier League title this season as they have failed to adapt to life without former long-serving manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Their defence of the Premier League title is the second lowest in the history of the prestigious competition.

Blackburn Rovers' defence of their Premier League title win in the 1995/96 season remains the worst as they held onto the crown for just 225 days.

Manchester United's campaign has been so bad that they could even miss out on a spot in next season's Champions League as they are currently sixth in the Premier League.

Moyes' side are seven points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and face a tough Champions League tie against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
