The record man utd break
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have not lost any of their last 28 away games in the Premier League.

Sunday’s clash was Solskjaer’s 100th match in charge of United in the Premier League.
United have won 53 matches in the league so far under the Norwegian,

Due to the upcoming international fixtures, United are not in action again until September 11.
They will take on Newcastle at home before turning their attention to the first match of the Champions League group stage against Young Boys on September 14.
