Manchester United set a new club record for away wins courtesy of their 3-2 success at Southampton on Sunday.

Manchester United have set a new club record for away wins, having recorded a 3-2 victory against Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils trailed 2-0 at the interval, with James Ward-Prowse adding to a header from Jan Bednarek to leave the Saints in a dominant position on home soil.

Bruno Fernandes halved the deficit just before the hour, though, before Edinson Cavani came up with a double to hand United their fourth straight victory in all competitions.

The 20-time English champions have now won eight successive top-flight away matches for the first time in their history, having also overcome Brighton & Hove Albion, Newcastle United and Everton on the road this term.

United are now just five points off Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur with a game in hand and will be looking to continue their impressive run away to West Ham United next weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will first switch their attention to the Champions League, though, as they prepare to welcome Paris Saint-Germain to Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
