Arsenal have finished the Premier League season with the most goals scored in a single campaign after their 5-0 win over Wolves on the final day. Mikel Arteta’s side had already secured second place before the game, with Manchester City retaining their status as champions. However, the 5-0 win at home to Wolves meant that Arsenal managed to break their own personal Premier League record by finishing the campaign with 88 goals. Arsenal‘s previous best in the Premier League was the 87 goals scored in the 2004-05 season where they finished runners-up behind Chelsea. Granit Xhaka, who potentially played his last game for Arsenal, scored two early goals for the Gunners before Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus, and Jakub Kiwior completed the win.
Mikel Arteta addressed Arsenal‘s supporters on the pitch after the game and urged fans to “enjoy the journey” as the club still waits for its first Premier League title since 2004. “Together we have reconnected the soul of this football club, and the soul of this football club is you guys,” Arteta said. “We know what our destination is to bring success, joy, and trophies to this club, but in the meantime, please enjoy the journey.”
The five Premier League teams with the most goals scored in a single campaign include Manchester City in 2017-18 with 106 goals, Chelsea in 2008-09 with 103 goals, Manchester City in 2019-20 with 102 goals, Manchester City in 2013-14 with 102 goals, and Liverpool in 2013-14 with 101 goals.
Overall, Arsenal is celebrating their win over Wolves and the realization that they broke their own personal Premier League record by scoring the most goals in a single campaign. Arteta is urging Arsenal fans to enjoy the journey and wait patiently for the club’s next big success.
