Five-star travel!

Sunday's 3-1 success at Swansea made it five-successive away wins in the Premier League - our best run of successive away league victories for over 50 years.

Bill Nicholson's all-conquering double team set the standard.

They won 10 away matches on the trot in the old Division One from April, 1960 through to November, 1960.

In the double-winning campaign of 1960-61, they won their first 10 matches (home and away) until Manchester City picked up a 1-1 draw at the Lane on October 10.

However, the winning run on the road continued until the trip to Hillsborough on November 12, when a 2-1 loss against Sheffield Wednesday halted the sequence at eight matches in the season, 10 in total.

We put together four away wins on the trot for the first time in the Premier League with our victory at Old Trafford on New Year's Day.

Before then, we last managed four in a row on the road in Division One, from March to April, 1989.

Sunday's win at the Liberty Stadium sets a new best run of away victories in the Premier League.
