1. United suffered their first defeat to Newcastle at Old Trafford in 41 years as they went down 1-0 to the Magpies in December.

2. Everton's victory at the weekend confirmed their first league double over the Reds since 1970.

As a result of that defeat, United have won just one of their 12 meetings with the Premier League's top eight sides this term.

3. Swansea claimed their first ever win at Old Trafford earlier this season as they knocked the Reds out of the FA Cup.
It was only the second time in 30 years that United had exited the competition at that stage.

4. The loss to the Swans followed a first home defeat to West Brom since 1978.

5. Losing at Goodison Park mathematically confirmed that United won't play Champions League football next season for the first time since 1995.

6. They are now also certain to finish behind rivals Liverpool for only the second time in the Premier League era.

7. City's win at Old Trafford for this season was the first time they had pulled off three consecutive away wins over the Reds since earning five between 1968 and 1972 (not all Moyes' fault, of course).

8. City and Liverpool had, in fact, never both done the double over United since the Premier League began.

9. The club are also destined to post their lowest points total in the rebranded English top-flight.

10. And finally, the 2-2 home draw with Fulham in February saw the hosts make the most crosses (81) ever seen in a Premier League fixture.
