As they say, Football is a beautiful game. Goals play a major part in calling it a football game. However true is the saying that attack wins you games, defence wins you titles; it is the goals and the sound of the ball striking the back of the net is something which excites the fans. High-scoring teams playing attack football have often been liked by neutrals as well.

The Premier League, one of the highest-scoring leagues, kicked off its 30th season the past weekend. Hence, we decided to take a look at the 5 teams who scored the highest goals in a Premier Season.

1. Manchester City – 106 Goals (2017-2018 season)

Leading the rankings with 106 goals are Pep Guardiola’s “Centurions.” After the arrival of Guardiola, City took the league by storm having breezed past to win the Premier League title. Sergio Aguero led the charge and ended up as the top scorer with 21 goals with Sterling following up having scored 18 goals.

On Matchday 37 against Brighton, City won 3-1 which gave them the honour of being the highest-scoring team in a Premier League season with 105 goals. They later added on 1 against Southampton to end the season with a record 106 goals and 100 points to cap off a brilliant record-filled season.

2. Chelsea – 103 Goals (2009/2010 season)

Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea became the first team to hit a century of goals in the Premier League era on the very last day with the 8-0 win. The thrashing of Wigan on the last day not only gave them the then record 103 goals but also a Premier League title. The Blues ended the season with a domestic double, having won the Premier League and FA Cup. It was the first domestic double in Chelsea’s history

Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard were exceptional for Carlo’s side as they racked up most of the goals. Didier Drogba ended the season with 29 goals which also made him the Golden Boot winner. Lampard contributed to 22 goals as the Blues stream rolled to the title.

3. Manchester City – 102 Goals (2013/14 season)

Manchester City, the only team to feature on this list twice were one of the most lethal teams in 2013-14. The Cityzens pipped Liverpool to the title having went on to score 102 goals. 2013-14 is the only season from which we have 2 teams on this list. Such was the close battle in that season with Manuel Pellegrini’s men playing free-flowing football.

Manchester City also ended up with a remarkable 156 goals in all competitions in that season. One of the in-form teams of the time, Manchester City went on to win their 2nd title in 2013/14 having won the first 2 seasons back in 2011-12. Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero and, Edin Dzeko all contributed to goals and hold the record for being three players from the same team to score more than 15 goals.

4. Liverpool – 101 Goals (2013/2014 season)

Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool was one of the most explosive sides at that time to exist in the Premier League. The Reds were known to play free-flowing football, the result of which they rank 4th on the list with 101 goals scored. However, there is an unwanted record too. This Liverpool side is the only team to feature on this top 5 list who did not go on to win the title.

The infamous Steven Gerrard slip came in this season which dearly cost the title for Liverpool. The goals were not a problem for Rodgers’ men as they inched closer to their first-ever Premier League title, only to end up 2 points behind the eventual champions Manchester City. The duo of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge ran riot, as they bagged a combined 52 goals having scored 31 and 21 respectively.

As a result of Suarez’s 31 goals, he also won the Golden Boot and eventually earned his move to FC Barcelona the following season, where he would go on to be one of the most lethal strikers and a part of the legendary trio ‘MSN’.

5. Manchester United – 97 Goals (1999/2000 season)

The treble winners from the previous season were an unstoppable force yet again as they marched their way to yet another Premier League title. Sir Alex Ferguson and his team Manchester United’s dominance continued with yet another record. They broke the goalscoring record with 97 goals as Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole lead the charge for the Red Devils.

The duo of Yorke and Cole bagged 49 goals amongst them. Manchester United ended the season, finishing 18 points clear of arch-rivals Arsenal, defending their league title in the process.
