Man Utd, Liverpool, Spurs: Who has won the most away games in PL history?

Man Utd, Liverpool, Spurs: Who has won the most away games in PL history?

Following their 3-1 victory over Brentford on Wednesday evening, Manchester United became the first club in history to register 300 away wins in the Premier League.

Goals from Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford at the Brentford Community Stadium saw United pick up three points at a record 55th Premier League ground.

Since the competition was established back in 1992, a total of 49 other teams have played Premier League football alongside the Red Devils. However, only two of them – Huddersfield and Swindon – managed to stay unbeaten against United at home.

The 13-time Premier League champions may only have won five of their 11 games on the road this season, but they are the most successful travelling side in the history of the English top-flight by some distance.

Their 300-win milestone sees them 41 victories ahead of their nearest pursuers. It becomes all the most impressive when you consider that only 10 teams (including United) have managed to record 100 away wins in the Premier League era.

In recognition of the achievement, we’ve taken a look at the away records of all 50 teams to have played in the Premier League via Stat Bunker – ranking each in terms of the number of matches they’ve won. 

As dominant as United have been overall, the fact that there are nine teams on this list that haven’t managed to break into double figures for victories proves just how tough it can be to grind out a Premier League win.

The majority of United’s triple century of wins came under the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson as the legendary Scotsman led the Old Trafford outfit to no less than 13 Premier League titles.

In terms of Premier League supremacy in Manchester these days, it is Pep Guardiola’s City who led the way, looking poised to claim a fourth title in five years this season.

Let's start easy: What was Tottenham's old ground called?

They’ve got a long way to go to match United in terms of historical away day successes, though, trailing by 112 wins, nearly six full seasons of away games.

The likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea are also several seasons from breaking the 300-win barrier. 

In reality, no side looks set to come near United’s number one spot for quite some time. Current interim boss Ralf Rangnick would no doubt love his side to replicate some of the consistency shown in the early years of the Premier League, though.
