Manchester United equal Arsenal Invincibles record, the red devils have become only
the fourth team in English top-flight history to go a full season unbeaten away from
home. Anthony Elanga netted his first senior goal for United to open the scoring at
Molineux but Nelson Semedo’s equalizer pulled Wolves level.
On the stroke of halftime, United were awarded a penalty following a VAR check and
Juan Mata stepped up to score and restore the visitors’ lead.
United were able to hold out for the win to ensure that they finished the season without
suffering a defeat on the road.
What an achievement,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, told BT Sport after the game.
“Then again, our home form hasn’t been that great. But to go a season undefeated,
something we’ll be proud of.”
Arsenal are the only club to have achieved the same feat in the Premier League era
as they finished the season unbeaten away from home in 2001/02 and in their 2003/04
Invincibles campaign. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side finished the current campaign in
second place, 12 points behind champions Manchester City.
