Man Utd’s win over Leicester City in the Premier League extended their unbeaten run to 15 matches.
Sunday’s victory over Leicester City extended Manchester United’s unbeaten league run to 15 matches, taking them halfway towards breaking the club record.
It is currently the longest undefeated streak throughout all of Europe’s top five leagues, one ahead of Barcelona.
Since the 4-0 hammering at Chelsea at the end of October, United’s run has propelled them back into Champions League contention, despite a number of frustrating draws over the period.
The current club record stands at 29 matches and has been achieved twice – unsurprisingly by the Treble-winning team, but also more recently in the 2010-11 season.
In the latter case, the opportunity to eclipse 1999’s heroes was wasted when Sir Alex Ferguson’s side unexpectedly lost to bottom-of-the-table Wolves after a 24-match unbeaten start to the season on the way to their record 19th league title.
The current run is the club’s best since 2012-13, when Ferguson recorded 16 wins during an 18-game unbeaten period in his final season.
