The current Premier League season has become the most goal-laden 20-team campaign in the competition’s history, with Harry Maguire the unlikely man to seal 2023-24’s place in history.

Maguire scored Manchester United’s first equaliser as they twice fought from behind to clinch a 4-2 win over Sheffield United on Wednesday, with Bruno Fernandes netting twice in the second half.

The centre-back’s 42nd-minute header was a significant moment, representing the 1,085th goal scored in the Premier League this term.

That is the most ever scored in a season containing 20 teams, since 1995-96.

The 2022-23 season saw 1,084 goals scored, a tally that was reached on the final day to surpass the previous 20-team record of 1,072, set in 2018-19.

It was somewhat fitting for the record-breaking goal to be conceded by Sheffield United, who have certainly played their part in making 2023-24 the most goal-laden season to date.

The Blades have now shipped 92 goals this term, the most ever conceded in a 38-game Premier League campaign.

With four games to come, including a rematch with a Newcastle United team that thrashed them 8-0 earlier this campaign, the prospect of Chris Wilder’s men bringing up triple figures is a realistic one.
