‘The most frustrating’: Pundit singles out surprise United star for showboating vs Arsenal

Despite a catalogue of costly errors across the first half of the campaign, the goalkeeper has certainly convinced some – not all – of his doubters that he’s the man for the job long-term.

When looking at Onana’s maiden term statistically, the most significant red flag is that he’s conceded 80 goals across all competitions thus far. 56 of those have come in the Premier League, where United have faced the same amount of shots (630) as Derby County did in 2007/08 when the Rams notoriously finished on 11 points.

Onana, who signed on a £47 million deal from Inter Milan last summer, has also had to navigate an ever-changing defensive line in front of him. This season’s debilitating injury crisis has undoubtedly hit the backline the hardest, and it’s led to Casemiro deputising at centre-half while partnering 36-year-old Jonny Evans in recent outings.
