Manchester United's insistence on playing possession football under manager Louis van Gaal means they take far more passes for every shot than any other Premier League team, statistics released Monday showed.That is the fewest in the league while United's 131 passes is the most.Damningly, United have managed just seven shots on target in their last four home games – also the worst record in the league – leading to regular chants of "attack, attack, attack" from the Old Trafford crowd.In the past two months United have played five goalless draws at home, against Manchester City, Middlesbrough, CSKA Moscow, PSV Eindhoven and West Ham.Under Van Gaal this time last year it was 30, with goals conceded also higher.
