Manchester City are the new Goal King


They say that the most competitive league present is the English Premier League. And they also say that Spanish La Liga is the league where most number of goals are scored by two top teams – Barcelona and Real Madrid. While Spanish La Liga is offensive-minded, it is the Italian Seria-A which is defensively mastered.

Over the years it has been either Barcelona or Real Madrid with the most number of goals at the end of seasons. This time also the result would have been either of the two if the new kings would not have announced their arrival into the league. A team that used to be a pawn in football history until 2011, is now the new king of goals in football era.

Manchester City have been exponentially mastered by Pep Guardiola and impacted by his Tiki-Taka style of play. The manager loves his side to be dominating against any opponent they come through and hold maximum position as possible( their average being more than 60-65).
