How many penalties have Manchester United been awarded this season?


Marcus Rashford Manchester United 2019-20

Manchester United ended their 2019-20 campaign on Sunday with yet another penalty as they lost to Sevilla 2-1 in theEuropa League semi-finals.

Though another season without a piece of silverware for United, it proved to be a successful one in terms of penalties won, with the clubawarded a remarkable22 penalties acrossall competitions.

That number is the most penalties won in a single season by a club in Europe's top five leagues since 2015-16 when Barcelona were awarded 24.

The Red Devils' recent fortune from the spot saw them wina season-high 14 penalties in the Premier Leaguewith Solskjaer's side managing to convert 10 of those. In comparison, league champions Liverpool were awarded just five spot-kicks, while Everton, Newcastle United and Sheffield all won just one each.

Fernandes has personally taken14 penalties in all competitions this season, while playing for both Sporting and United, with the Portuguese star converting all of them as he enjoyed a successful season in front of goal.

Prior to Fernandes' arrival at Old Trafford, Marcus Rashford was generally the player that stepped up to spot, with both he and Anthony Martial missing penalties earlier in the season in a game against Norwich.

In the Europa League, the Red Devils won five penalties and managed convert all of themas they progressed to the final four.

Solskjaer's side only managed to score via spot-kicks in theirfinal two games in the competition with their 46 shots across the two matches failing to convert on scoresheet.

Speaking after the loss against Sevilla, Solskjaer admitted that the club will need to make signings over the summer if they are compete for silverware next season.

"We need to strengthen the squad depth of course because it's going to be a long season and only a couple weeks rest until we get going again,” Solskjaer said.

“Of course we'll keep pushing and keep demanding more of players we have but we're looking to improve. It's a strange one. The league starts very quickly but the market's open for so long. We've got to be good, smart and clever.
