Sheffield United's start to this Premier League season has been worse than any other Premier League contestant in its history, having now picked up just two points from a possible 51 and losing an almighty 15 games and scoring just eight goals.
This has meant they've also conceded 29 goals in 17 games, which whilst not the most in the league, it does mean they have a dismal -21 goal difference and could end up breaking all the records set by Derby County in that infamous season of 2007/08.
In that year, the Rams accumulated the least points since the introduction of three points for a win and ended the season with 11 points from a possible 114, which remains a league record. At the same time, Derby went on a 32 match winless streak, scored the fewest goals (20), and were also relegated by March 29, which is the earliest of any Premier League team ever.
At the current ratio of points per game, Chris Wilder's men won't just break Derby's record, but smash it out the park, as their two points from 17 games is the worst of any team after this point in the season. Now, with 21 games left to go (61 points), Sheffield United need to find eight points to avoid breaking this record and will likely need to find another 10 from somewhere to avoid relegation.
Right now, both seem near impossible.
