Records which Manchester United can script this season
After a disappointing 2018-19 season, Manchester United have serious work to do under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. United have got off to a decent start in the Premier League 2019-20 season. However, they have a long campaign ahead and besides a top-four finish, the club will be eyeing a trophy at least. Can Manchester United conquer new heights? Here's more.
Manchester United have registered 649 wins in the Premier League. That's the most by any club in the competition's history. Another victory on Saturday against Crystal Palace will see the club register a special feat of 650 wins in England's top division. Arsenal (567) and Chelsea (558) hold the second and third spots respectively.
The main target for teams in any league is to score plenty of goals and win games. Ole's side has already netted five in the first two games this season. United, who have won the EPL a record 13 times, has scored 1,994 goals in the competition. The club needs six more goals to become the first team to register the mark of 2,000.
United will aim for a 13th FA Cup honor this season. They last won the trophy in 2015-16. If United win the FA Cup then they will equal Arsenal's tally of 13 (a record). The club has also pocketed five League Cups. If they manage to win the trophy then they will equal Manchester City's tally of 6. Liverpool (8) hold the record.
United won their maiden UEFA Europa League honor in 2016-17. The club will be eyeing this competition this season. A second title will see them equal the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Real Madrid (two titles each).
Goal-keeper David de Gea has 101 clean sheets in the Premier League. The Spaniard needs 16 more to surpass Tim Howard (116) and 14 more to get past Pepe Reina (114). If De Gea achieves this feat then he will have the third-most clean sheets in EPL history after Petr Cech (161) and Joe Hart (127).
