Biggest win: 6-0 v Bradford City (H)
In doing so, United recorded a first ever hat-trick of league titles with Sir Alex becoming the first manager to win three in a row.
The turning point came in October after a 1-0 defeat at Arsenal. United bounced back and went on a run of 15 wins from the next 19 games which took them 13 points clear. The Reds then smashed the Gunners 6-1 at home at the end of February.
Party time came on 14 April when United’s 4-2 home win over Coventry, coupled with Arsenal’s 3-0 slump at home to lowly Middlesbrough, sealed the title with five games to spare.
