Manchester United are the first team to snap the record-breaking milestone of hitting 2,000 goals in the Premier League.
The goal has also come during the journey to Carrow Road to face Norwich City and was hit by Scott McTominay as he began the scoring with not so high morale, hard finish after the Canaries failed to get away from their lines from a corner.
McTominay joins an elite list of United stars who have hit landmark goals in the Premier League.
United’s first-ever goal in the league was bagged by Mark Hughes in the same game in which Brian Deane scored the league’s first-ever strike.
The 500th was snapped by Andy Cole in the 8-1 humiliation of Nottingham Forest in 1999.
Cristiano Ronaldo was the man to score goal number 1,000 as he burst in with a header versus Middlesbrough in 2005, although it ended up in a 4-1 defeat in the North East.
After that, it was Dimitar Berbatov who had United’s 1,500th goal in a 3-2 loss to Blackburn Rovers in 2011.
United then became the first team to hit 1,000 goals at home – when Anthony Martial scored against Everton in 2016.
These landmarks can help motivate a Manchester United who is facing a huge identity crisis. Ole’a boys have been on the end of some miserable results in the league.
However, the past couple of weeks have been very positive for the Mancunian side. They have to build on this momentum and not slip any further if they intend to reach the top 4.
With Martial and Pogba returning from their injuries, the side will get the well-required push as far as offense goes.
The defense has been relatively positive. United need to score and score and reach new goal related landmarks to stand a chance in today’s high octane football.
