David Moyes to be sacked: The damning statistics that tell the tale of Moyes' painful season at Manchester United

Another week gone, and another miserable result for Moyes

It was a been a season of despair for David Moyes at Manchester United, with the manager facing the sack  after a campaign full of painful records.

United's woeful 2-0 defeat on Moyes' return to Everton on Sunday produced another unwanted statistic - it was the first time since 1969/70 that the Toffees did the league double over United.

It was the latest in a long line of records that beleaguered Moyes, in his first season at Old Trafford as the great Sir Alex Ferguson's replacement, has unfortunately broken this season.

The champions have 57 points from 34 league matches this season, a massive 27 points fewer than they had at this stage last season (84).

The 57 points at this stage is also their lowest total at stage in a league season since 1990/91, when they had 56 points in the old Division One, they finished that season in sixth place.

And what next for Moyes...United (999) are only one loss away from their 1,000th top-flight league defeat.

There is not even the FA Cup left to provide a ray of light for Moyes' season - his side have already been knocked out of the competition in the third round for only the second time in 30 years, by Swansea City in January.
