Vidic pointed to statistics that suggest the runaway Premier League leaders are the most dominant team seen in the more than 20 years of the Premier League as his reasoning, with United becoming the first team to win 25 out of 30 games when they beat Sunderland by a single goal last weekend.
United are currently 15 points clear of defending champions Manchester City and victory in Monday’s Manchester derby – to be played at Old Trafford – would extend the advantage to 18. At their current rate, United would beat the record of 95 points set by Chelsea under Jose Mourinho in the 2004/05 season.
Vidic said: “ This is a great achievement. If you have those stats, you cannot argue, adding: “ I think we’ve played well this year, we’ve scored many goals. Okay, maybe we can improve certain things, but if you look at the team performance this year I think it is better than any other season.”
United are currently on an 18-game unbeaten run and if they beat City to extend the streak to 19 games, it will be the equivalent of going unbeaten for a full half of the season.
