Manchester United just pulled level with Liverpool as England’s most successful club

Manchester United beat Southampton 3-2 in a thriller on Sunday, winning the EFL Cup thanks to a fantastic showing from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and yet another cup final goal from Jesse Lingard. With the win, United draw level with their bitter rivals for the title of England’s most successful club, Liverpool, on 41 trophies.

United have won 20 Premier League titles, 12 FA Cups, and three European titles in addition to their latest cup victory. Their neighbors to the west have won 18 domestic titles, seven FA Cups, eight League Cups, and five European cups in their history. That’s 41 trophies each.

Manchester United fans still come out of this one with bragging rights though.

If both the Club World Cup and European Super Cup trophies are included in the reckoning, United pull ahead of Liverpool on total trophies won. Officially though, they sit even with a total haul of 41 “major” trophies.
