How Manchester United Beats Top Premier League Sides in Front of Goal This Season

Second placed English Premier League (EPL) side Manchester United have netted more goals that any other side this season, surpassing their historical record set eight years ago.

Bruno Fernandes's goal on Sunday against West Bromwich Albion that earned the Red Devils a point at the Hawthorns, made them the first premier side to score 50 goals this season.

The Reds are seven points behind league leaders Manchester City, who also have a game in hand.


But despite United's shortfalls that saw them slip off the top of the premier league, statistics show Ole Gunnar has the best lethal goalscoring squad, that has racked up more goals than any other side in the 2020/21 season.

United's leaky defense, however, which has conceded 31 goals this season, erodes their attacking power as they try to keep cleansheets in matches. 

And in 24 matches, united has scooped just 46 points against league pacesetters The Citizens with 53 points, however, the Reds have a four goal lead against in form Pep Guardiola's side.

Defending champions Liverpool sit third with 45 goals, while Leicester (42) and Leeds (40) hold number four and five respectively as the Premier league's top scorers.

In form Chelsea who now sit 5th in the premier league after back to back wins inspired by new coach Tuchel, have only managed to score 38 goals in their race to win the title this season.

And to round up United's most opposing sides and the Premier league's football powerhouses, Arsenal now position 10 in the table, have struggled in front of goal this season having netted just 31 goals and bagging 34 points.

The last time in 2013 under Sir Alex Ferguson when united topped the premier league goal chart in 20 matches with the same goals, they proceeded to win the title.

Ex-Sporting Lisbon man Bruno Fernandes has found the back of the net 14 times, with Marcus Rashford(8) and Edison Cavani (6) all topping as The Red Devils prolific goal scorers.
