In this article, a fully discrete finite element method is considered for the viscoelastic fluid motion equations arising in the two-dimensional Oldroyd model. A finite element method is proposed for the spatial discretization and the time discretization is based on the backward Euler scheme. Moreover, the stability and optimal error estimates in the $L^2$- and $H^1$-norms for the velocity and $L^2$-norm for the pressure are derived for all time $t>0.$ Finally, some numerical experiments are shown to verify the theoretical predictions.
