2012-13 Manchester United last won the Premier League in the 2012-13 season. This is the only season that Manchester United has won the Premier League.
Thirteen titles Manchester United has won a record 13 Premier League titles since the top division of English football was renamed in 1992. The Red Devils are the most successful team in the history of the league with over $1 billion in revenue.
United's success can be attributed to their efficient scouting network and ability to identify young players who will one day become household names. The club is also known for its prolific goal scorers such as Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Ibrahimović. In fact, only three teams have scored more goals than United in the Premier League era: Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool.
Overall, the team is dominated by British players with only five foreigners having played major roles during their time at the club. These five men have won almost every award there is to win on the club level including two each of the PFA Players' Player and Footballer of the Year awards as well as the FWA Footballer of the Year award. They are Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Ibrahimović.
The latest addition to this elite group is Ole Gunnar Solskjær who took over from José Mourinho after he resigned following losing in the 2018 UEFA Champions League final against Juventus.
United Manchester Manchester United won the Premier League for the ninth time in fifteen years when Chelsea lost to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on May 6, 2007. With two games remaining, they were seven points behind United, securing the Manchester club as champions once more. This was their second consecutive season without a trophy after losing the FA Cup and League Cup.
The previous year, Chelsea had also been crowned English champions, but it was their first title in five years. They had also reached the UEFA Champions League final, but were defeated by Milan 1-4 on aggregate. As winners of the league, Manchester United were invited to participate in the 2008 UEFA Champions League season. It was only the third time that an English club has taken part in the competition.
Chelsea were declared champions on May 7, after Arsenal lost to Liverpool at Anfield. However, this wasn't enough to prevent manager José Mourinho from leaving Stamford Bridge after just one season.
It is the most successful period in the history of Manchester United who have won more titles than any other English club. The only other club to have won the top flight more than once are Liverpool, who have won four times. Everton and Leeds United have also won the league twice each.
The Football Association Premier League Manchester United's first season in the newly established FA Premier League and their 18th successive season in England's top flight was 1992-93. The season was highlighted by the club's first Premier League triumph, which ended a 26-year drought without an English league title. United won the league by four points over Liverpool.
This page is dedicated to that game and to Man U's first ever Premier League title.
Man U began the season by beating Queens Park Rangers 4-1 at Old Trafford. They then traveled to Elland Road to face Leeds United in their next match. The game ended 1-1 after extra time with Brian McClair scoring for Leeds late in the second half of the first period of extra time. In the end, it was Paul Scholes who won it for Man U as he scored a free kick goal in the 91st minute of the game to give his team the lead.
They closed out the regular season with three straight wins: 2-0 against Derby County, 3-0 against Southampton and finally 5-0 against Wimbledon. This earned them the title ahead of Liverpool by four points.
Man U started their championship campaign by drawing 0-0 away to Arsenal. They then got back on track by defeating Chelsea 1-0 at Old Trafford thanks to a last-minute goal from Ryan Giggs.
Manchester United has won the Premier League more times than any other team, finishing first 13 times. Manchester City, the Premier League champions in 2017-18, set the record for the most points with 100. The Premier League has included 49 clubs since its inception in 1992. There have been seven different winners during this time.
Before the creation of the Premier League, English football's top division was known as the First Division. The inaugural season of the Premier League began on August Monday, August 5, 1992 and ended on May Sunday, May 31, 1993. The championship was decided by way of the play-off system. In 1994, the Football League introduced a new promotion and relegation system between the First Division and the Second Division. This system remains in place today. However, because the First Division was considered to be of such quality, no club was forced to drop down a division.
After several years out of management, Alex Ferguson returned to Manchester United in 1986. Under his leadership, Manchester United became one of the most successful teams in world soccer history. He retired as manager at the end of the 2008-09 season. David Moyes was hired as his successor but was fired after less than a year in charge. Ryan Giggs, who had been with the club since 1971, took over as caretaker manager before Ferguson returned for a second stint at the club. He retired for a second time at the end of the 2014-15 season.
The first Premier League season began in August 1992, with Arsenal widely predicted to win. At the end of the season, Manchester United were declared champions. The following is how the Guardian predicted the 1992-1993 campaign: "The first season of the new Premier League will be a fascinating experiment. No club has yet proved it can survive and thrive in this climate. But there are signs that both Manchester United and Arsenal have learned from their failures of the past and will be able to cope with the increased competition."
United won the title by just one point ahead of Arsenal. Both clubs had strong campaigns - United finished with an average score of 2.53 points per game, while Arsenal scored 2.87 goals per match on average - but the fact that they were not separated by more than one point suggests that neither team was really dominant throughout the season.
Speaking after the season, Sir Alex Ferguson said he was pleased with his side's performance despite losing at Wembley to Crystal Palace. He also admitted that the championship was not enough to satisfy him and his players after they failed to win any of their last four games during the season. However, Ferguson did not want to be drawn on whether or not he would continue as manager next season.
Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood claimed that the title was enough to make everyone happy at the club.
