Manchester City fans will certainly remember 2017 for a long time, after Pep Guardiola’s side reached 100 top-flight league goals over the last 12 months in their 4-0 win over Bournemouth this afternoon.
A brace from Sergio Aguero, along with strikes from Raheem Sterling and Danilo, means that City have become the first top-flight side to score a century of goals since Liverpool did in 1982.
Not bad at all.
The Reds totalled 107 goals back then, and with two games remaining this year (away trips to Newcastle and then Crystal Palace) there’s every reason to believe that high-flying City can surpass that total as well.
If that wasn’t enough to brag about, City have also gone the entire year unbeaten at home.
26 matches at the Etihad, zero defeats – winning 21 and drawing 5.
Some notable home wins for Guardiola’s side in 2017 include the 5-3 result against Monaco in last season’s Champions League, as well as league games against Liverpool (5-0), Stoke (7-2), Arsenal (3-1) and Tottenham (4-1).
Thanks to their win today, City are currently 14 points clear of neighbours Manchester United in second-place, who play Leicester on Saturday evening.
That’s a whole lotta New Year cheer for Guardiola and co.
Sergio Aguero also had a reason to smile, after notching his 100th goal at the Etihad Stadium – all despite all the recent talk of discontentment at the club.
