Records in danger: Penalty mark near for Milivojevic

Serb could equal most spot-kicks scored in a single season if Crystal Palace get penalty against AFC Bournemouth

There are many Premier League records that could be equalled or broken on Sunday. Here we look at which marks are under threat.

Most penalties in a season

If Crystal Palace are awarded a penalty at home against AFC Bournemouth, Luka Milivojevic will have a shot at matching a record held by a former Eagles player. 

Milivojevic has scored 10 penalties in 2018/19, the joint-second most there have ever been in a PL campaign. 

A converted spot-kick at Selhurst Park this weekend would move him level with the 11 scored by Andrew Johnson, for Palace, in 2004/05. 

Most goals from the spot
Season Player Club Penalty goals 
2004/05 Andrew Johnson CRY 11
2013/14 Steven Gerrard LIV 10
2009/10 Frank Lampard CHE 10
1994/95 Alan Shearer BLB 10
2018/19 Luka Milivojevic CRY 10
2002/03 Ruud van Nistelrooy MUN 8

Only two teams have ever won more penalties in a single season than Palace's 11 this term: Chelsea in 2009/10 and Manchester United in 2018/19, who were both awarded 12. 

So Milivojevic will be hopeful of getting the chance to match, or even surpass, Johnson's total.

And he only needs to look back at Matchweek 10 for further encouragement.

That's because the Serbian midfielder successfully netted two penalties in one match against Arsenal, a feat that would make him a record-breaker if repeated on Sunday.
