Manchester United are looking forward to welcoming Erik ten Hag as their new permanent manager - and it's clear the Dutchman will have quite a task on his hands.

United are languishing in sixth place in the table after their 4-0 thrashing at Brighton on Saturday and the season will end with their lowest points tally in the Premier League era.

Since the Premier League started in the 1992/93 season, United have been champions 13 times and runners-up six on six occasions in an incredible era of domination.

But after Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, United have struggled, with David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and now interim manager Ralf Rangnick all failing to lift the Premier League trophy.

Rangnick has been named manager of the Austrian national team but is set to continue in a consultancy role at United when Ten Hag arrives in the summer.

United's lowest tally of points came in the 2013/14 season, the year after Ferguson left, when they amassed 64 points. That campaign they were beaten by West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City among others at Old Trafford, and lost on the road to Sunderland and Stoke.

This season United have 58 points from 37 games, with only their final match at Crystal Palace away to come on May 22.
