Manchester United broke a Premier League record yesterday by crossing the ball an incredible 81 times against Fulham on Sunday.

The Red Devils continuously tried to get the ball wide before playing a long ball into the box in hope that the likes of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney would be able to get onto the end of a cross.

However Fulham's centre-back pairing of the gigantic Dan Burn and the brilliant John Heitinga managed to deal with the majority of the 81 crosses.

Manchester United did not have a plan B - despite the fact that they had the likes of Juan Mata, Adnan Januzaj, Javier Hernandez, Rooney and Van Persie on the field during the later stages of the game.

And David Moyes was made to pay for failing to instruct his players to change their style of play as Darren Bent scored a last-minute equaliser to help his side claim a point.

You can watch a compilation of Manchester United's crosses, which was brought to our attention by the Metro, above.
