Anthony Martial’s strike in Manchester United’s 1-0 win against Everton was the Red Devils’ 1,000th Premier League goal at Old Trafford.

United become the first side to achieve the feat, with Arsenal on 912 and Chelsea on 896 their two nearest rivals. Liverpool are fourth on 868 while Manchester City are way back in eighth in 636.

The landmark has been reached in 458 matches since 1992 when Denis Irwin opened United’s Premier League account in a 1-1 draw with Ipswich.

Wayne Rooney is top goalscorer in that period with 99, while Paul Scholes (59), Cristiano Ronaldo (57), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (53), Andy Cole and Ryan Giggs (49), Ruud van Nistelrooy (48) and Eric Cantona (37) have also made considerable contributions.
