Manchester United could end up making history if they secure a win against Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Red Devils are all set to host the Cherries at Old Trafford in a crucial Premier League tie, wherein a win would take them above Liverpool and Arsenal, and onto the 4th spot in the league table (albeit the Gunners will still have a game in hand).

However, a win this weekend would have some historic consequences as well, as Manchester United would then become the first team to reach 600 victories in the Premier League.

The Old Trafford giants have been the most successful team since the Premier League era began, having won the PL title 13 times. Furthermore, the only team that comes close to United in terms of the number of games won in this era, is Arsenal, with 517 victories.

Jose Mourinho’s men have been in fine form recently, and they currently boast a 16-game unbeaten run in the league – the second highest in Europe’s Top 5 leagues, behind La Liga giants FC Barcelona (18).

But despite their unbeaten streak, and their EFL Cup triumph last weekend, Mourinho has insisted that a victory on Saturday won’t be guaranteed due to the quality their opponents possess.

The Portuguese talked about Bournemouth in his pre-match press conference, stating: “They are a very tricky, dangerous team, with quality and ambition, who are not afraid to play. They normally try to win matches and try not to draw.”
