Away record: How United made history

Sunday 29 August 2021 20:57

Record breakers! Manchester United have set yet another standard for English league football by achieving the longest run of away league games without defeat, a remarkable 28 matches in a row.

By avoiding a loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side went one fixture clear of Arsenal's also-impressive sequence of 27, registered under Arsene Wenger's management between April 2003 and September 2004.

The fact that the Reds did it by winning 1-0, thanks to a Mason Greenwood goal in the 81st minute, and in Ole's 100th Premier League game as United boss, made the feat even sweeter.


Here are some of the supporting numbers for that remarkable milestone of 28 away games without a defeat:

18: The Reds' tally of victories on the road in the Premier League since February 2020.

10: The number of draws in that run, the latest being last Sunday's 1-1 scoreline at Southampton.

13: How many clean sheets have been kept by David De Gea and Dean Henderson. Unlucky for opposition forwards.
51: United have scored that number of goals across the 28 unbeaten away games.

19: Only that many strikes have been conceded by the Reds during the record run.

19: The number of different clubs United have avoided losing to in the sequence.
