A big club certainly draws a huge crowd.

In the same light, United's record attendance to date in the Premier League came during the 2006-07 season, when they were up against Blackburn Rovers at home in Old Trafford.

A capacity crowd of 76,098 saw United maul Blackburn 4-1, as legendary players Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, Ji-Sung Park and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer netted one each.
