Bukayo Saka hit the winner in Saturday's meeting with Aston Villa to bring up Arsenal's 2,000th goal in the Premier League. The England international rifled in a low 20-yard strike to give the Gunners a one-goal lead in the 30th minute.

Arsenal become only the third team to hit the milestone in the competition after Manchester United and Liverpool. Jürgen Klopp's side managed the feat in last week's win against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Arsenal, joint-fifth top scorers in this season's Premier League

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, who are aiming to secure Champions League qualification for the first time since 2016, took their tally to 44 goals in the league this season with Saka's opener at Villa Park.

Stats Perform breaks down the headline numbers from Arsenal's tally.

87 - Arsenal's 87-goal haul in 2004-05 remains their highest-scoring season to date, but they have hit the 80-goal mark on two further occasions, in 2002-03 (85) and 2009-10 (83).

300 - The Gunners are the only side to have netted at least 300 Premier League goals at two different grounds. They scored 538 while at Highbury and have now moved onto 605 at Emirates Stadium.

45 - The opposition ground at which they have scored most often in the Premier League is Goodison Park (45). Indeed, Everton are the only side against whom Arsenal have helped themselves to over 100 goals in the competition.

30 - Thierry Henry became the first Arsenal player to score 30 Premier League goals in a season, when he did so in the famous 'Invincibles' campaign of 2003-04. Robin van Persie is the only other Gunner to have hit that mark since, when he netted 30 in 2011-12, before going on to join Manchester United.

3 - Henry scored 25 goals or more in three separate Premier League campaigns (2003-04, 2004-05, 2005-06). The only other Arsenal player to ever score more than 25 was Van Persie in his final season at the club.

175 - Predictably, Henry is Arsenal's top scorer in the Premier League, with 175 goals. Ian Wright is second with 104, with Van Persie third on 96. Dennis Bergkamp tallied up 87, while Olivier Giroud scored 73.
