Manchester United’s record-equalling start

Manchester United have so far proven to be the side to beat this season.

The Red Devils have brushed away sides standing in their path, scoring 21 goals and conceding just two.

But not only have they dominated, they’ve made a record-equalling start, equaling their already joint record.

Manchester United 4-0 Crystal Palace

Whilst Manchester United make the league’s best ever start, Palace continue to make the league’s worst-ever start.

Romelu Lukaku has been on fire since his move from Everton in the summer.

The Belgian has now scored seven Premier League goals in seven appearances for United.

This equals Andy Cole’s club record of the number of goals scored in his first seven Premier League appearances for the club.

Goals also from Juan Mata and a brace from Marouane Fellaini secured the Red Devils a crucial three points.

Marouane Fellaini was hugely impressive this afternoon and was even voted the Man of the Match.

Jose Mourinho said on Fellaini:

“He played really well.

He has been doing it a long time.

He is confident, he is happy with his contribution to the team.”

Record-equalling start

Manchester United have equalled their record of most points achieved after seven Premier League games.

In 1998/99 and 2011/12, under Sir Alex Ferguson, United won 19 points from a possible 21.

This season, under Jose Mourinho, they have equalled that record.

To show how they are crushing sides, United have won 4-0 on four occasions in the Premier League this season.

Even their own official Twitter page recognized just that.
