Newcastle United could smash 100 goals on Sunday
Sunday could see Newcastle reach 100 goals for the season and surpass one total that was achieved in 2009/10.
That last promotion team managed 99 goals, 90 in the Championship and 9 in the Cups.
This time, Newcastle stand on 97 goals after 52 games – 45 in the Championship, as well as 4 League Cup matches and 3 FA Cup games.
So 3 or more against Barnsley will see that 100 goals target reached since the season kicked off in August.
As for the people who have got the goals, the overall total of goals is on the left and then on the right is how many FA and League Cup goals are included in the overall totals.

Back in 2009/10, the top scorers (all competitions) that season saw four players carry most of the burden.
Andy Carroll (19) just pipping Kevin Nolan (18), with then Peter Lovenkrands (16) and Shola Ameobi (11).
The four of them scoring 64 of the 99 goals between just that quartet.
In comparison, the top scorers this time see the top four scoring 66 of the 97 goals so far – with Gayle (22), Ritchie (16), Perez (11) and Gouffran (7).
