Manchester United have become the first team to reach the historic milestone of scoring 2,000 goals in the Premier League.
The goal arrived during the trip to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City and was scored by Scott McTominay as he opened the scoring with a low, hard finish after the Canaries failed to clear their lines from a corner.
McTominay joins a prestigious list of United stars who have scored landmark goals in the Premier League.
United’s first ever goal in the league was scored by Mark Hughes in the same game in which Brian Deane scored the league’s first ever strike. The 500th was bagged by Andy Cole in the 8-1 thrashing of Nottingham Forest in 1999. Cristiano Ronaldo was the man to score goal number 1,000 as he powered in a header against Middlesbrough in 2005, although it came in a 4-1 defeat in the North East.
Then it was Dimitar Berbatov who scored United’s 1,500th goal in a 3-2 defeat to Blackburn Rovers in 2011.
United were also the first team to score 1,000 goals at home – when Anthony Martial netted against Everton in 2016.
They are far and away the top goal scorers in Premier League history and it will likely be some time before another team reaches the 2,000 mark.
