Manchester United have joined an elite club after going the entire season unbeaten away from home in the Premier League.
Remarkably, this is just the fourth time this has ever happened, with Arsenal managing it twice during the Arsene Wenger era, while Preston North End also did it back in the 1888/89 season.
See below for confirmation of Man Utd’s achievement…
Manchester United didn’t lose a single Premier League away game in 2020/2021. It’s just the fourth time a team has gone unbeaten away in English top-flight history:

United fans will no doubt have mixed feelings about this, as it’s frustrating to see how impressive they’ve been on the road, only for their home form to let them down in the title race.
Manchester City had a pretty easy time of winning the title in the end, and if United had been as consistent at Old Trafford as they have been on their travels, they surely could’ve got closer to their rivals.
It’s still highly impressive, however, so perhaps gives Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. hope for a better season next term.
