Manchester City equal Premier League wins record, first to century of goals twice

LONDON -- Manchester City have set yet another record, becoming the first club to score 100 goals in a Premier League season twice.

The 4-1 victory over West Ham also saw them equal the record for most wins in a season (30) while three more points would break the record for most points in a campaign (95).

They reached 100 goals in 35 games -- the quickest an English top-flight side has reached the milestone in a single campaign since Everton in 1931-32, who achieved the feat in 32 games.

Pep Guardiola's side are now on 102 goals for the season -- matching the total when they won the title in 2014. Second-placed Liverpool also scored 101 goals that season.

They are now within touching distance of the record of 103 set by Chelsea in their title-winning season of 2010 and have another three games to achieve the record. They host relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town next Sunday and could set new records then.

City brought up three figures in not quite the way they expected when Kevin De Bruyne's low cross deflected off Hammers keeper Adrian and onto Declan Rice then Pablo Zabaleta for an own goal off the ex-City player.

City are the only English top-flight side ever to score and concede a century of goals in a single season. In the 1957-58 Division One campaign, they scored 104 goals and conceded 100 -- then over a 42-match season.

Leroy Sane had opened the scoring at the London Stadium to bring up double figures for the first time in his career.

He's the fourth City to pass 10 goals in the Premier League this term-- along with Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus -- the first time four players from the same club have passed the mark in the same season since 2012-13. David Silva, who was given time off against the Hammers, also has nine goals.

Sterling got three assists against the Hammers to move onto 11 for the season -- and it means City now have the four leading players for assists -- De Bruyne (15), Sane (12) and Silva (11) also featuring.
