15 Most Iconic Moments In The Premier League History

most iconic moments in the Premier League history

Premier League , over the years , has seen many iconic moments in its history. From last minute title clinching goals to team mates fight on the pitch – it has seen it all. Let us have a look at some of the most iconic moments in the Premier League history.

15. Bust-up between teammates – Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer ( April 2, 2005 )

Teammates Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer took their frustrations out on each other in front of 50,000 plus fans at St James’ Park – not to forget the millions watching on TV. With Newcastle 3-0 down to Aston Villa, Bowyer took offence to Dyer not passing him the ball and the pair lashed out at each other. Three goals down and down to 10 men with eight minutes to go, things got even worse for Newcastle United at St James’ Park against Aston Villa as they were both sent off, leaving the Magpies with just eight players on the pitch. Both players had to later make a public apology in a press conference and were suspended.

14. Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira go head to head (1999-2000)

You can really take your pick from 1998-99, 2004-05 and so many other flashpoints between Keane and Vieira, but Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Arsenal at Highbury was probably the volcanic peak, not least because one of them scored twice to win the game and they so dictated it by going head to head as well as the fact this was when the rivalry – between the two clubs and two players – was at its most ferocious. The Premier League still hasn’t seen anything like it, and these two best defined the aggression and energy that has so characterised the competition.

13. Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle (April 3, 1996 )

This was a brilliantly entertaining match on a floodlit night at Anfield. Both teams were challenging for the title, neither could really defend. Newcastle desperately needed to win after seeing a 12-point lead over Manchester United at the top of the table swing into a three-point deficit.
From 1-0 to the hosts to 1-1; 1-2, 2-2, 2-3, 3-3 and then, in stoppage time, Reds striker Stan Collymore beat Newcastle goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek. Liverpool manager Roy Evans would later describe the game as “kamikaze football.” The teams would play out another 4-3 thriller the following season, but the first time is always the best.
