Manchester United set unbeaten record with unwanted 36-year highest draw tally

Manchester United have set a new club record of
25 successive games without defeat in a single
top-flight season.
Jose Mourinho's side reached the milestone as
they drew 1-1 at home to Swansea City in the
Premier League on Sunday.
Their last league defeat was the 4-0 thrashing by
Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on October 23.
The milestone is unlikely to be celebrated too much
at Old Trafford, however, given that the draw means
United failed to grasp the chance to move into the
top four.
They remain in fifth place, behind Manchester City,
and can now be caught by Arsenal from sixth
should the Gunners win their two games in hand.
Indeed, the latest stalemate was United's 10th at
home in the league this season. The only time they
have drawn more often on their own turf in a single
domestic campaign was back in 1980-81, when
they were held on 11 occasions.
