In England, as is true for the rest of the world, football is the uncontested, most popular sport, dominating sports fandoms and pubs. The English, however, have a far deeper relationship with the sport, as its origins can be traced to mid-19th century, in Cambridge. While kickball games similar to football have existed since the ancient era, the game proper, as we understand it today, is largely agreed to have begun in 1848, when Cambridge University drafted up the, so-called, Cambridge rules.
Since then, the spot has spread far and wide, becoming the most popular sport in the entire world, with over five billion fans. Not only is football the most popular played and watched sport in the world, it is only the most popular betting sport. Bookies at online betting sites like www.betstation.com have reported that football is by far their most profitable sport.
In England, the highest tier of football is the English Premier League, where 26 of England’s top teams face off against one another for 10 months. The 2021/22 Premier League is currently on-going, and the top teams and players that have stood out are some of the most popular English teams. But in this article, we will take a look at the teams that have scored the most goals.
Chelsea is currently ranked third in the official Premier League rankings, and they are also third in terms of scoring in the current Premier League. Chelsea have, thus far, played 25 games, out of which they have won 13, lost only three, and have tied the remaining 9. During these 25 matches, Chelsea have scored a total of forty-eight goals, placing them behind only two other teams, and ahead of some of England’s most popular teams, most notably West Ham Utd., Manchester United, Arsenal, etc.
Manchester City, thus far, have played 23 games in the current Premier League, and thus far, they’ve only lost 2, tied three, and won a staggering 18 games. This track record has landed them at the top of the Premier League ranking for the second year in a row. However, Manchester City is not the highest scoring team of the season. So far the team have scored 55 goals overall, placing them second, in terms of goals, behind only Liverpool, and ahead of their rival team, Manchester United (who have scored 36 goals overall during the season).
One of England’s most popular teams, Liverpool has always been considered among the best English football teams. They have been in the top performing clubs in the Premier League for the past decade, and have truly earned themselves the title of one of the best. As of now, their last game in the Premier League was against Crystal Palace, a match that Liverpool won, securing their rank as the number one, highest scoring team in the 2021/22 Premier League, with 58 goals. As of now, Liverpool are ranked 2nd in the Premier League, behind Manchester City, and even though they’ve scored more overall, it doesn’t seem that the club will overtake Man City as the number one.
