Despite having numerous depressing losses under their belt, this season, Manchester United have still somehow managed to place amongst the teams with the most goals scored in a game. On day one of the EPL, United beat Leeds at 5-1. Unfortunately, this streak didn’t last long because they continued a losing streak when they lost 4-1 to Watford on Matchday 12. Luckily, they’ve had a management change-up that will hopefully see them rise to their former greatness. At the time of writing, Manchester United sits 7th on the Premier League table. If they wish to place at the top, they must continue winning matches under their new manager, Ralf Rangnick.
West Ham United
West Ham sits just above Manchester United in 6th place on the EPL table. Their highest goal count was against Newcastle, where they scored 4-2 back on Matchday 1. Unfortunately, they haven’t been on the ball recently – drawing a couple against Brighton and Burnley followed by a defeat in hands of Southampton.
Liverpool got off to a mediocre start to the season, with their highest goal count sitting at just 3. However, when they played Watford on Matchday 8, the tables turned, and they thrashed them 5-0. Currently, in terms of goals scored across the league, Liverpool is out in front with an impressive 50 spread over 18 matches.
Since Lampard departed and Thomas Tuchel took over, Chelsea has been on a winning streak that saw them secure a title win in the 2020/2021 season. This season, they are currently 3rd on the scoreboard and have the joint-highest goal count in a single game with 7-0 against Norwich City. Unfortunately, this is the highest they’ve flown this season, with some of their games seeing them only score 1-3 goals. If they wish to continue with their winning streak, Tuchel needs to bring back the thunder and turn things around. However, hats off to the blues for staying strong amidst a terrible injury crisis in midfield.
The Premier League is at full steam right now, with the race for the title leaving only a couple of points between a win and being a runner up. Will Chelsea manage to the occasion, will Manchester United return to form, or will the West Ham underdogs rise up the ranks? The only way to find out is to stay tuned and watch your favourite games.
