EPL stats: Which clubs have scored the most goals from outside the box in Premier League history?

It goes without saying that the level of the Premier League is such that there are no easy games in the division. Be it against the big sides or the bottom-half teams, every game is a challenge in the EPL. It is largely due to the huge TV revenue in the league, which has allowed the clubs to build competitive squads across the top division. This is what makes the Premier League an extremely interesting watch for its supporters across the globe.

Which club has scored the most goals from outside the box?

The team at the top of this list is Manchester City. It is a bit of surprise to see City at the top of this table. In recent past, Man City have undoubtedly been the most successful side in the division. However, it has not always been the case throughout the Premier League era. There were large portions in which City have even struggled to maintain their status in the top division. Hence, it is an eye-opener to see them topping this unique table.

Overall, Manchester City have scored 207 goals from outside the box in the Premier League history till now, as per the premierleague.com (some stats are only available since 2006-07 season). They are closely followed by another unexpected side in the division in Tottenham Hotspur. Unlike Man City, Spurs have never been able to break the established order. They have had positive spells under various managers but were never able to establish them at the top end of the table. Overall, Spurs have found the back of the net 181 times from outside the box in the EPL era.

Chelsea and Liverpool share the third spot in this list with 177 goals from outside the box in the Premier League history. These two have constantly been one of the heavy weights in the division and have always made life difficult for their opponents. Chelsea started its dominance in mid 2000s and have since been a force to be reckoned with in the division. Liverpool waited patiently for their turn which finally arrived in recent years after the arrival of Jurgen Klopp.

Manchester United are placed fifth

The most successful side in the Premier League history, Manchester United, are fifth in this table. The Red Devils have scored an incredible amount of 166 goals from outside the box in Premier League era. Man United might have enjoyed the most success in EPL for long periods, however, their fortunes have changed massively since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
