10 Biggest Thrashings in Premier League History

By Danger Here | Blog, Goals, Video

It’s fair to say that most Premier League games are well contested and relatively close affairs but on the odd occasion we witness a team getting mullered and conceding 7 or more goals in a game.

Manchester United’s 9-0 win against Ipswich Town in 1995 leads the way as the biggest thrashing but other games have come very close to this scoreline.

United have come close twice more with big wins against Notts Forest in 1999 ending up 8-1 and the 2011 destruction of Arsenal 8-2.

Wigan fans and players would probably wish to forget the 2010/11 season where they were on the receiving end of two of the 10 biggest Premier league thrashings within a six month period.

So without further adieu, here we showcase the 10 biggest thrashings in Premier League history.

1. Manchester United vs. Ipswich Town

When Manchester United faced Ipswich Town in March 1995, the game was guaranteed to be high scoring.

Manchester United was competing to win the Premier League and Ipswich Town was just hoping to not finish with the worst record in the leagues history. Andy Cole had one of his better days scoring 5 goals that saw Manchester United win by a final score of 9-0.

2. Newcastle United vs. Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday struggled the entire 1999-2000 season to avoid relegation, and the 8-0 loss to Newcastle United in March 1999 really didn’t help matters. Alan Shearer scored 5 goals in one of the few highlights of the season for Newcastle United.

3. Chelsea vs. Wigan Athletic

If there’s a team that knows about thrashing its opponent, then it would definitely be Chelsea. They are the only team that appear in this list 3 times. Chelsea was able to easily defeat Wigan Athletic 8-0 in May 2010 on their way to winning the Premier League.

4. Tottenham Hotspur vs. Wigan Athletic

While Wigan Athletic were able to avoid relegation in the 2009-2010 season, they played some of the worst games in Premier League history. Just months before Wigan lost 8-0 to Chelsea, they were thrashed by Tottenham Hotspur 9-1 in November 2009. Jermaine Defoe led the scoring for Tottenham with 5 goals.

5. Chelsea vs. Aston Villa

The most recent game on this list is Chelsea’s demolition of Aston Villa by the score of 8-0 in December 2012. Chelsea has not been performing to their potential in the 2012-13 season, but they have had no trouble scoring goals. Six different players were able to get on the score sheet during this game.

6. Nottingham Forrest vs. Manchester United

The most impressive win on this list may be the thrashing that Manchester United gave Nottingham Forrest in February 1999. Manchester United became the first team in Premier League history to win by seven goals on the road when they defeated Nottingham Forrest 8-1.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored 4 goals, and all of his goals were score in the final 10 minutes of the game when he came on as super sub.

7. Blackburn Rovers vs. Nottingham Forrest

Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forrest were only separated by three points in the final league table during the 1995-96 season, but that did not stop the two teams from playing a lopsided game. Blackburn Rovers got seven goals from four different players on their way to a 7-0 victory in November 1995.

8. Arsenal vs. Middlesbrough

The great talents of Arsenal were on display in January 2006 when they defeated Middlesbrough 7-0. Thierry Henry was playing his best football in his career, and he was able to score three of the goals for Arsenal.

9. Middlesbrough vs. Manchester City

Middlesbrough are the only team on this list that both won and lost one of the biggest thrashings in Premier League history. Just two years after losing 7-0 to Arsenal, Middlesbrough was able to defeat Manchester City 8-1 in May 2008. Middlesbrough would also finish 13 points behind Manchester City in the league table despite this game.

10. Chelsea vs. Stoke City

The 2009-2010 season was very kind to Chelsea. They were able to win the Premier League, and they were also able to secure two thrashings. Chelsea was able to defeat Stoke City 7-0 in April 2010 just one month before their 8-0 victory over Wigan Athletic.

    Today has beyond question been a reasonably dismal day for Nintendo staff, shareholders and fans alike. As we tend to discovered earlier within the day, Nintendo area unit financially not in a very sensible place. With Satoru Iwata later adding that he has no intention of stepping down. Nintendo Feed takes an instant to explore Nintendo's choices now, wherever is the approach forward? Nintendo need to create some pretty drastic change.
