Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes the team have dominated opponents this season, but have simply been unlucky.

Jose Mourinho's men have collected only 20 points from 13 games this season, which is United's worst start to a league campaign for 17 years.

The Red Devils were held to a fourth consecutive Premier League draw at home at the weekend as they were held to a 1-1 result by West Ham.

Herrera believes United's points total is not a fair reflection of their performances.

"I don't know what to say," the Spain international said, according to Sky Sports. "At the moment, luck is completely against us. We are playing very good and we deserve eight more points than we have.

"Yes. We feel it because we are better than every opponent.

"I don't know when the luck will change, but it's not even luck - it's just [what is] fair. We are looking for fair. We are looking to score maybe half of the chances we create and we will win 4-1 every game."

He added: "We play intense, we win the second balls, we create chances, we move the ball, we control the game, we have more possession than the opponents, we shoot on goal.

"I remember last season everyone said, 'shoot, shoot, shoot', and now we shoot I don't know how many times each game but we are not scoring.

"It's unbelievable that we don't have six or eight points more than we have but hopefully the luck will turn in our favour."
