Manchester United ran out 3-0 victors vs Aston Villa and rightfully received praise for their incredible recent run.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men became the first team in Premier League history to win by a three-goal margin in four consecutive matches.
It has come against the likes of Sheffield United, Brighton and Bournemouth but is an impressive feat nonetheless.
United need to win all their remaining fixtures to qualify for the Champions League and their form of late suggests they could go the distance.
In doing so they can potentially match a 55-year-old record and it should be something they aim for as well.
The last time we had three players who all scored 20 goals each in all competitions in a single season was in 1965.
Denis Law (39), David Herd (28) and John Connelly (20) made up the scorers.
There are many seasons with a third player getting close to 20. https://t.co/TPZdCaL1Qk

Given Mason Greenwood’s own form, it doesn’t seem to be a farfetched target as he’s only four goals away from achieving it.
The young prospect has been absolutely sensational since the resumption of the league and has cemented his position on the right-wing.
Greenwood has looked unstoppable and undroppable so it’s difficult to imagine him suddenly running out of gas.
Young players tend to burn out quicker than more experienced players but Solskjaer has done well to protect the academy graduate so far.
Greenwood will also benefit from the ability to temporarily switch positions with anyone in the front-four, as evidenced by his goal vs Villa.
18-year-old Mason Greenwood has been setting the world on fire for Manchester United this season. But how much do you know about other teenage stars that have played for the Red Devils over the years? Take our quiz below to find out.
