Man Utd aim to break Premier League record this season

Manchester United are set become the first team in Premier League history to score 2,000 goals.

The Reds are currently 17 goals away from that milestone, but there’s a good chance the record will be met before the end of the season should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team keep scoring at the rate they have been.

Solskjaer quickly changed United’s approach to games when he was made caretaker manager. Less pragmatic than José Mourinho, the Norwegian asks his players to get forward and take risks which has helped Marcus Rashford hit top form.

United have averaged 2.5 goals a game since Solskjaer was made interim boss, and if they keep that up we should reach the 2,000 goal mark by late April.

If United keep winning games and blowing teams away with big goal margins, it won’t be long before Old Trafford is recognised as a fortress again.

Solskjaer has already done an incredible job – unbeaten since taking the role – and this would be a nice record for him to achieve considering he already contributed 91 goals to the tally himself, sitting sixth in the standings of United’s all-time Premier League goal scorers. Wayne Rooney is the club’s all-time top scorer, so it’s hardly a surprise that he scored more goals (183) than any other Red in the league.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored United’s 1,000th Premier League against Middlesbrough in 2005, becoming the first team to reach the landmark.

Who will bag number 2,000?
