The Old Trafford outfit have become the first club to reach the landmark following Saturday's 2-0 victory over Watford

Manchester United's 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday saw them become the first Premier League team to amass a total of 2000 Premier League points.

Martial takes his chance for superb Utd

The Old Trafford outfit have regularly set new benchmarks since the Premier League's inception in 1992 and have now added another to the list.

Goals in either half from Juan Mata and Anthony Martial secured the points for United, with the win taking the club a single point behind local rivals Manchester City in fifth and extending their unbeaten league run to 16 matches.

The Red Devils are now 203 points ahead of second-placed Arsenal and 353 over fierce rivals Liverpool, with Tottenham and Everton pulling up the rear.

It was also United's 599th win in the Premier League era, meaning they will become the first team to reach the 600 mark if they beat Bournemouth at home on March 4.

Mata has now scored in successive Premier League games for Man Utd for the first time since September 2015, while Martial has been involved in more league goals for his side than any other player since his debut.
