When Manchester United played Hull earlier this week, we were reminded of the five players on their books who started their football careers at United’s academy. Research from the CIES Football Observatory shows that Manchester United have produced more professional footballers than any other English club, but whilst we know our players have gone to have successful careers at other clubs, just how many Premier League games are our own players getting at United?
