Manchester United made history with Saturday’s 2-0 win over Watford, as the first Premier League club to reach a landmark total of 2000 points.
United have topped the all-time table for a long time, having won the championship in the competition’s first season, 1992/93. Nearest rivals Arsenal are a long way behind on 1797 points and 2016/17 league leaders Chelsea sit in third place on 1755.
After playing 949 games, the Reds have reached 2000 points with 599 wins and 203 draws. The win ratio after the Watford match stands at 63 per cent.
United, one of only six teams to play every single game in the Premier League since its inception, also sit top of the standings when it comes to points-per-game with an average of 2.11. No other club has an average of more than 2.
The Reds can become the first club to achieve 600 Premier League victories by winning the next top-flight fixture, when Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth visit Old Trafford on 4 March, but for the time being, Jose Mourinho’s side will prepare for four cup matches across three competitions in the remainder of February.
