It’s been long since Manchester United have made any record-breaking headline. But their recent famous 9-0 goal battering of Southampton brought back the memories of the record-breaking United we used to know.
United are seated second in the English Premier League table. But, they would have to up their performance if they are to chase Manchester City for the league crown.
This weekend United can set a personal record that was last reached during the time of Sir Alex Ferguson if they score a goal against West Brom.
Manchester United have been prolific in front of goal despite scoring 3 in the last game they were held to a 3-3 draw by Everton.
If United scores a goal at the Hawthorns, it would be the earliest they have reached 50 goals in a season from 24 or fewer games since Ferguson retired.
The legendary manager won his 13th top-flight title in the 2012/13 campaign as his side finished a comfortable 11 points clear at the summit.
That dominant team netted 50 goals in just 20 games as they had the likes of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney terrorizing defenders.
West Brom has conceded 54 goals and United’s away form has been blistering. So the likelihood of United getting a goal is high.
