The 2021/2022 Premier League season has resumed following the short international break. While some clubs continued their impressive form, others fell off the pace. With Manchester City and Liverpool scoring 5 goals each in their matches, both clubs have added to their total number of goals scored in Premier League history.
While they and other clubs are scoring many goals at the moment, they are not the highest scoring club in Premier League history. The good news is they are on the list of the 10 highest scoring teams in Premier League history.
In this article, let us take a look at the 10 teams who have scored the most goals in the history of the Premier League.
It is worth mentioning that the current Premier League system started in the 1992/1993 season, when the Old First Division was rebranded.
10. West Ham.
Starting this list at 10th position is London club West Ham United. The Hammers as often called have scored 1,189 goals in their Premier League career.
9. Aston Villa.
Aston Villa have scored over 1000 goals in the Premier League. In fact, they have scored a total of 1,225 goals. The club just sold their star player Jack Grealish. However, they have still continued to score goals.
8. Newcastle United.
Newcastle have scored around 1,341 goals in the Premier League. The northwest club has just been bought by new owners. We could see them scoring more goals in the near future as they will look to challenge like Manchester City.
Everton are next on this list with a total of 1461 goals scored. Although they don't challenge for the title and haven't won it before, they have been ever present.
6. Manchester City.
Manchester City are arguably the best team in the division at the moment. On their day, no defence can stop them from scoring. This position on this list was probably aided because of how successful they have been since 2008. The Sky Blues have scored 1,578 in Premier League history.
5. Tottenham Hotspur.
London club Tottenham has scored a total of 1,682 goals in the Premier League. While the club is yet to win the league, they have finished second some seasons back.
Chelsea is the 4th highest scoring team in Premier League history. The blues are so dominant at the moment. So far, 1,913 goals scored places them in fourth at the moment.
Liverpool just won their first Premier League title two seasons ago. However, the club have always challenged for it since the rebranding. In that time, they have scored so many goals. In total, they have scored 1,945 goals in the Premier League.
Just like the club occupying first position here, Arsenal really enjoyed their presence in the Premier League before 2005. The year before was the one in which they won their last Premier League title.
One good thing is that they don't find it hard to score goals. In the history of the competition, Arsenal have scored a total of 1,961 goals. This only falls short of Manchester United's tally.
1. Manchester United.
There are no doubts that Manchester United is the greatest club in Premier League history. With 13 triumphs to their name, the club have dominated the league before the last decade. Under the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson, they were a joy to watch.
In the Premier League, Manchester United have scored a whooping 2,144 goals. This includes the 2 scored against Leicester City on Saturday. Wayne Rooney is the club's higher goals scorer in Premier League history.
Will the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool be able to outscore Manchester United in the near future? Have your say.
