United Manchester On May 16, 2009, Manchester United secured the Premier League title with a 0-0 draw against Arsenal. It was their 11th Premier League triumph and 18th overall, tying them with close rivals Liverpool, who finished second. It was also United's first championship since 2002 and their third in four years.

The club had been leading the table for most of the season but could not keep up its early pace; however, they did manage to win every match after New Year's Day when they lost 1-3 at home to Chelsea. This is when Sir Alex Ferguson decided to replace David Moyes with his former player Ole Gunnar Solskjær as manager. The Norwegian made several key transfers during the winter months including buying Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid for $100 million. He helped Man United regain their form and finish as champions.

Although they were defeated by Barcelona in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, this loss no longer counts as United won 3-1 on aggregate. This means that they will receive a £44 million ($67 million) prize if they win the Europa League. Finally, they reached the FA Cup final but lost 1-5 to Chelsea at Wembley Stadium. However, this victory does count as United won the treble (league cup, europa league, and FA Cup).

Manchester United had previously held this record after doing so in 1998-99 and 1999-2000 but it is now shared with Chelsea.

Both clubs have qualified for the group stage of the UEFA Champions League every year since its inception in 1992-93. However, only Chelsea have been able to progress further than the quarter-finals due to their greater financial strength.

United failed to advance beyond the group stage for five consecutive seasons from 1993-94 to 1997-98. During this time, they went through four managers. Their last game before the start of the 2009-10 season was a 0-3 home loss to Aston Villa where Roy Keane announced his retirement as a player. No club has ever played more games in a single season than United's 309 in 1995-96.
