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.

I really fan of Man United since 1999. I'm Brazilian and when Manchester United won Palmeiras in the FIFA world of clubs in 1999. Then I became a fan this club.
My favorite player is Wayne Rooney.
I remember of the game against Chelsea in the final Champions League. When Cristiano Ronaldo score in the penalty kick and after lose yours penalty kick this was very exciting.
I love this club and one day I have sure I'll watch one game at Old Trafford.

Hi Davilillons and welcome to Premier Skills English!

Thanks for your comment, I hope it's the first of many! Your English is very good and using phrases like 'in fact' show that you have a good understanding of the language. However, there are a couple of things I could help you with:

1) 'I think as Jane' is incorrect. You could say: I think the same as Jane.

2) When you say 'they have signed to other defender and other midfielder' you say this as a fact but it hasn't happened yet, so it would be better to say: 'they need to sign another defender or another midfielder'  or 'they have to sign another defender or midfielder'.

Hope that helps!

Manchester United have already bought Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan(rumours that Pogba will reinforce their midfield become louder) and with new pragmatist manager- Jose Mourinho, they will definitely be one of the pretenders on the title. Very difficult task is making prediction, especially after previous amazing season, let say that Manchester United will be at the third position at the end.

Jane Lost is right when talking about Man spending during year 2015/2016. If I am not wrong it was worth more than 150 Millions pounds. The results for this year were not at the level. But there is a good point in making debut for youngs from its own formation center like Rasheford and some youngsters from outside like Martial. Its a good thing to make these efforts when losing in recruiting a substitute to the most ancient manager of the League. After two attempts do Morinho will succeed. I hope it will although I am not a Man fan.

I'd love to say something about my Man U expectations for new season,but it's pretty hard to predict,considering what's been this year.Well,with such a new manager and players they should be at least winners of season 2016/17,but as I said,it's hard to predict accurately,so anything's possible.I just hope Man U will do better next season :)

No doubt,Man Utd is th greatest club in football at all,but how they spent their money for transfers and how they're doing now isn't really exciting.Such high predictions for last season(and nlt only that one) and as a result- a place in Europe League and only 5th position in the PL.Very dissapointing.

I do not love Man United,but i can not say that they are weak, they are the most historic team in England sharing that with Liverpool.
