MANCHESTER CITY SCORED their 100th goal of the season on Saturday when Edin Dzeko opened the scoring in their Premier League game at home to Cardiff City.

Dzeko struck in the 14th minute at the Etihad Stadium, meeting David Silva’s cut-back with a low shot that bobbled over the line despite Kevin McNaughton’s attempted last-ditch clearance.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have been in free-scoring form this season, putting six goals past Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, outclassing Manchester United 4-1, and crushing Norwich City 7-0.

With 59 goals from 21 games, prior to kick-off, City are on track to surpass the Premier League goal-scoring record set by Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea, who scored 103 goals en route to the title in 2009-10.
