The teams of the English Premier League had a very productive performance on the 23rd game day of the championship.

The 23rd round of the English Premier League of the 2023/24 season has gone down in the history of the competition. According to the league’s official website, a record number of goals were scored in ten matchday matches, meaning 45.

The previous record for the number of goals scored in 10 matches was 44. This figure was achieved twice: first in the 2nd round of the 2020/21 season, and then in the 34th round of the 2022/23 season.

It is also reported that this season teams have scored 730 goals in 228 English Championship matches. On average, fans see 3.2 goals per match.

If everything continues like this, then the Premier League participants will be able to break the record of the 2022/23 season, when 1084 goals were scored in 380 matches. With the current performance, the victory will exceed 42 goals.

It should be noted that the most goals scored in a Premier League season was scored in the first campaign, 1992/93. Then the teams scored 1222 goals (2.6 goals per match), but in that championship there were 22 clubs, not 20 like today.

Let’s remember that Manchester City’s victory over Brentford through Phil Foden’s hat-trick was a decisive step towards a new record.
