Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick bemused by toothlessness from corners

By Daily Sports on February 7, 2022

Manchester United have not scored directly from a corner in the Premier League for a year - so what is causing the barren run?

"This is really a little bit weird." That was Ralf Rangnick's assessment of the statistical quirk which places his side bottom of the pile for goal threat from corners.

"In the end, this is a question of training time, but is also a question of deliveries," he added. "We have players who should be technically able to deliver the balls in the right way.

"We still need to improve in those areas [and] be more dangerous and effective from set-pieces. It's a question of training but it's also a question of quality of deliveries - even more so when it's free-kicks from the side or corner kicks."

On paper, United have been attributed two league goals from corners over the past 12 months, but one of those came from a Craig Dawson own goal against West Ham in March and the other came one phase after a corner against Burnley in April.

Data provider Opta registered the strike as a goal from a corner because the defending team were still in their defensive shape from the initial dead-ball delivery and United's centre-backs were also still in the box.
