Let's start in the Premier League, where Sunday's figure toppled the previous highest of 76,098 for Manchester United against Blackburn at Old Trafford in March, 2007.

Turning to Club stats, the attendance surpassed our previous league high of 73,587 against Chelsea at Wembley in August.

Previously, our highest crowd for a home league match was 70,882 against Manchester United at White Hart Lane in September, 1951.

Our record home attendance remains 85,512 against Bayer Leverkusen in last season's Champions League campaign.

That figure of 85,512 is an English club record. Indeed, both of our Champions League group matches against Monaco (85,011) and Bayer Leverkusen set new record figures, toppling the previous best of 84,569 held by Manchester City for an FA Cup tie against Stoke at Maine Road in 1934.

The 85,512 attendance is also the highest by an English club for a home match in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, our attendance of 80,465 against Gent in February set a new record mark for the UEFA Europa League, toppling the previous best of 75,180 for Manchester United against Liverpool at Old Trafford in March, 2016.
