Manchester United badge

Manchester Utd is the Premier League’s most successful club. They have won the Premier League a record thirteen times and the top division a total of twenty times.

 

  • Stadium: Old Trafford
  • Stadium Capacity: 74,994
  • Location: Manchester
  • Founded: 1880 (as Newton Heath)
  • Nickname: The Red Devils
  • Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
  • Kit: Red shirts and socks with black shorts

Manchester was formed in 1880 but was originally called Newton Heath and played in green and yellow before they were renamed Manchester Utd in 1902 and then moved to Old Trafford in 1909. United have played in the top division for most of their history and they have only played one season (1974/75) in the second division in the last eighty years. United have won more trophies than any other club in English football. Here are the highlights:

  • League Champions: 20 times (a record)
  • FA Cup Winners: 5 times
  • League Cup Winners: 5 times
  • European Cup / Champions League: 1967/68, 1998/99 & 2007/08
  • European Cup Winners’ Cup: 1990/91
  • FIFA Club World Cup: 2008

Manchester Utd are English football's most successful team in terms of trophies won.

Three to Watch

Here are three Manchester Utd players to keep an eye on in the Premier League this season:

Romelu Lukaku

The Belgian striker was Manchester Utd’s top scorer with 16 goals last season. Lukaku is a strong, fast target man who has already scored over 100 Premier League goals. He is also the record goalscorer for his country. He has scored over 40 goals for Belgium and helped his country to their best-ever World Cup finish (third place) at Russia 2018.

Romelu Lukaku was Manchester Utd's top scorer last season.

Paul Pogba

Pogba was one of the stars of the French team that won the World Cup in Russia and became the first Manchester Utd player to score in a World Cup Final. Pogba is a powerful and creative central midfielder who can also score spectacular goals. Pogba will be one of United’s most important players this season.

David De Gea

De Gea is often described as one of the world’s best goalkeepers.  The Spaniard signed for Manchester Utd from Atletico Madrid in 2011 when he was just 20 years old and has now made more than 300 appearances for the club. He has won the Premier League’s Golden Glove and has been voted Manchester Utd’s Player of the Year three times.

David De Gea won the Premier League's Golden Glove last season.

Last season

Manchester Utd finished sixth in the Premier League last season, outside the Champions League qualifying positions and a disappointing 32 points behind their city rivals. However, after parting company with Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer, took over and started to play a much more attacking style and their fans will be hoping to see more of that change this season.

Paul Pogba won the World Cup with France and became the first Manchester Utd player to score in a World Cup Final.

Prediction 2019/20: 4th

Fans will be hoping to compete with Manchester City this season, but with few big signings this summer they may find themselves battling for a Champions League spot again. United will need to make a strong start if they want to keep pace with the teams at the top but we see improvements at Old Trafford that will see them in the top four next May.

"Manchester United's nickname is the 'Red Devils', and they have played at Old Trafford ever since 1910, apart from a few seasons in the 1940s when they played at Maine Road, the home of Manchester City, while Old Trafford was rebuilt. "
When we use the word "while" as a name meaning some time without specification how much, do we need "since" or "for"? For example, I say: I have left university since a while or for a while?

I'm not a Man United fan, but I admire the scotsman manager Sir Alex Ferguson
He had made it difficult for any manager that will follow him at Man Utd, Because of the success that he brought to the club and the british football in general.
I think it's impossible nowadayes for a manager to stay for that long as Sir Alex Ferguson, even Arsenals' current manager Arsene has charged for 2 decades!

Being in charge of a world-class club for 27 yers is unbelievable, thats more than a Silver Yobel
