Reigning champions Manchester United have been the most successful squad in the Premier League having won it 12 times. Their first win in 1993 came after a 26-year hiatus and on the watch of Sir Alex Ferguson arguably the most successful manager ever.
That win came on the back of a brilliant performance that season by Eric Cantona, signed from Leeds United, and he received able support from Paul Ince, Ryan Giggs, Denis Irwin and Gary Pallister.

United’s other Premier League triumphs came in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011. They also won the FA Cup in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2004, and the League Cup in 1992 and 2006.
The European Champions League trophy was added to the league title and the FA Cup in 1999, arguably United’s best season ever.
There was a brief period during the last decade when Arsenal won the Premiership in 2004 and Chelsea won it in 2005 and 2006, when the Old Trafford squad appeared to have been knocked off their perch. But Sir Alex’s wards fought back to regain the Premier League, in 2007.
In fact, the 2007/08 was even better, as the Red Devils enjoyed their best season since the treble in 1999. They not only trumped Chelsea and Arsenal to win the Premiership but also beat Chelsea in the Champions League final in a penalty shoot out after the sides played out a 1-1 draw in Moscow.
A year later, in 2008/09, United won the Carling Cup and came within a whisker of winning the Champions League, losing to Barcelona in a thrilling final.
They successfully defended their Carling Cup title, a year later, in 2010 but lost out by a point to Chelsea, in a thrilling finish to the Premiership campaign.
In 2011, United bounced back again to make the Premier League title their own, nine points adrift at the top of the points table, from second-placed Chelsea and Manchester City. In the process, they also set a new record of 19 league titles, ahead of Liverpool, on 18.
