Manchester City Went Past 100 Goals For The Season


With Danilo’s first-half strike during their 3-0 victory over lowly Huddersfield Town on Sunday, they’ve become the first side in Europe to hit the 100 goal threshold across all competitions this campaign.

Caretaker boss Mark Hudson stepped in after Wagner's departure this week and oversaw a battling display, albeit from a team 10 points from safety at the foot of the table.
Pep Guardiola’s side have been helped to that milestone by some extraordinary form in 2019 so far, with a seven-goal FA Cup rout of Rotherham and a nine-goal demolition of Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup helping them to leapfrog their continental rivals.

Danilo's deflected long-range effort brought up that landmark, achieved across all competitions, after 18 minutes but Pep Guardiola's side were some way from their fluent best during the first half.

Raheem Sterling headed home the crucial second early in the 54th minute before fellow winger Leroy Sane got in on the act, puncturing a buoyant Huddersfield crowd that came to celebrate David Wagner's tenure.
More so, counting the three scored in their previous Premier League victory over Wolves and their efforts at the John Smith’s Stadium this weekend, with Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane both getting in on the action, they’ve now notched up 22 successful efforts in four games.

However, Manchester City might not be top of the Premier League this season, but that hasn’t stopped them from finding the back of the net with impressive frequency.
