Manchester City Becomes 2nd Club to Reach 100 Premier League Goals in 1 Season

Bleacher Report MilestonesB/R StaffMay 9, 2014

With a 93rd-minute goal by Yaya Toure to cap off a 4-0 rout of Aston Villa on Wednesday, Manchester City became the second club in the Premier League era to score 100 goals in a season, according to ESPN FC.

City still have a shot at tying or breaking the Premier League record, which is 103 goals scored by Chelsea during the 2009-10 season.

In addition to Manchester City, Liverpool also have a chance at reaching the current record, as The Reds have scored 99 goals heading into Sunday's season finale against Newcastle. While the four goals needed to tie Chelsea's mark is a tall order, Liverpool have scored at least that many 11 times this season.

The goal-scoring dominance of Manchester City and Liverpool becomes clear when considering that Chelsea have scored the third-most goals this season with 69.

Unsurprisingly, the two teams have five of the seven leading scorers this season, with Liverpool's Luis Suarez topping the list with a 38-game single-season, record-tying 31 goals, followed by teammate Daniel Sturridge with 21. Toure is currently third with 20, while teammate Sergio Aguero is tied for fourth at 17, and Edin Dzeko is tied for sixth with 16.

The two clubs each go into Sunday's final with a shot at the Premier League title. If Manchester City beats or draws with West Ham United, the title is theirs. If they lose and Liverpool defeats Newcastle United, The Reds will win it all for the first time in the Premier League era.
