Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City will go down as one of the best attacking teams the Premier League history breaking the 100-goal mark twice during his tenure.

They’re not letting up any time soon and during the 2021-22 season the Citizens have been part of one of the most lopsided and one of the highest-scoring matches in Premier League history — with both happening in the same month.

Man City beat an undermanned Leeds United 7-0 on Dec. 14, a result which was two goals shy from tying the all-time record for most goals scored by a team and for widest margin of victory.
