After Manchester City dismantled a bewildered Swansea side at the Etihad, they moved a step closer to another Premier League title – and to breaking Chelsea’s goal record.
Under Carlo Ancelotti in 2009-10, Chelsea were a class apart, and although they won the title by a single point over Manchester United, the Italian’s side scored the most goals in a single season, with an impressive 103.
Didier Drogba ran riot, scoring almost a third of them with 29 goals, while Frank Lampard chimed in with 22 for the season.
But City, who were crowned champions last week, are on course to break Chelsea’s punchy record.
Pep Guardiola’s team battered the Swans 5-0 in another impressive display, taking their goal tally to 98. With four games left and a scoring rate of 2.9 goals per match, they’re likely to smoke the Blues’ record with time to spare.
