Manchester United reach Premier League landmark, first to win 700 games

Manchester United’s 4-2 victory away to Leeds United on Sunday was the club’s 700th win in the Premier League and we are the first to reach that tally.

Second-half goals from Fred and Anthony Elanga sealed the three points for Ralf Rangnick’s side, after goals from Rodrigo and Raphinha had cancelled out first-half headers from Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes.

And United supporters will be pleased that Rangnick’s side reached this historic landmark in such a significant fixture.

Sunday’s match was the first time Reds supporters have visited Elland Road for a Premier League match for 19 years, with the last top-flight clash in Yorkshire occurring back in October 2003.

On that day, Roy Keane grabbed the winner in the closing stages to give Sir Alex Ferguson’s side a vital three points.

United did play at the ground last season but supporters were not permitted due to coronavirus restrictions.

Recent history suggested that there would be goals at Elland Road this afternoon. United have now scored 15 and conceded five in the last four fixtures against the Whites.

United’s first-ever Premier League win came back in August 1992, when Dion Dublin’s 88th-minute goal settled a game with Southampton at the Dell.

Of our 700 successes, 399 have come at Old Trafford, meaning the next three points secured in M16 will usher in another landmark.

We host Watford at the Theatre of Dreams on Saturday, after the Champions League trip to Atletico Madrid in midweek.

ALL-TIME PREMIER LEAGUE WINS

United – 700
Chelsea – 611
Arsenal – 610
Liverpool – 598
Tottenham – 492
