Manchester United broke the record for the longest unbeaten streak away in English football league history on Sunday.
The Red Devils made it 28 away games without a defeat as they won 1-0 at Wolves with Mason Greenwood’s strike in the 80th minute.
They had equalized Arsenal’s 27-game run in the ‘Invincibles’ 2003-04 season with a 1-1 draw at Southampton last week.
United’s last away defeat in the Premier League was against Liverpool at Anfield on 19 January 2020. They have won 18 and drawn 10 matches on their travels since then.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men have scored 50 away in that time and have only closed 18. Their top scorer in that race was Bruno Fernandes with 15, more than twice as many as any other United player.
Solskjaer has now overseen 100 league games with responsibility for United and became only the ninth manager in the club’s history to reach the milestone. Only Ernest Mangnall (54) won more of his first 100 managers than the Norwegian (53).
