The Blades have written themselves into the record books thanks to their stunning away form.
This weekend’s draw at Spurs means United are unbeaten in six away games this season. Despite picking up just the solitary win on the road, Chris Wilder’s men have recorded five draws.
Four of those draws have come down in London. Spurs, West Ham, Watford, and Chelsea have all failed to see off the Blades. The other draw came on the opening day at Bournemouth while United took all three points at Everton.
Naturally, this sort of form has got people paying attention.
And it hasn’t taken long for the stats people in the game to dig out this stunning stat for the Blades.
Unbeaten in our opening 6 games away from home ✊

This latest nod to the Blades is just another sign of how far they have come under Chris Wilder. United’s manager has led the club from League One and it doesn’t look like he is done yet in terms of improving his team.
Stats don’t lie
This is quite a remarkable stat for the Blades. But, it’s just one of a number of interesting statistics that surround the club at the moment.
United have also not lost a game when leading at half time in over 80 matches. It’s a run that stretches back to even before Wilder was in charge of the club. It shows the resilience in the team and will to win. It is a mark of just how good things have gotten for the Blades in that they hold such a record.
Things get better still when you look at the games United have actually lost. It’s another amazing stat which says that the Blades haven’t lost a game by more than one goal in 60 matches now. The last team to beat Chris Wilder’s men by more than one were Middlesbrough, all the way back in August 2018.
With such stats and such brilliant away form, it’s little wonder then that the Blades are continuing to write themselves into the record books.
