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.
Here are the 15 most iconic moments in the Premier league history –
2. Leicester Wins The Premier League (2015-16)
This was a season which captured the imagination of the world. Leicester City had started the campaign as 5,000-1 outsiders for the title after almost being relegated the season before and Claudio Ranieri was seen as an uninspired choice to replace Nigel Pearson, who was sacked prior to the start of the campaign.
But Ranieri and his team of bargain buys and journeymen started the season brilliantly and, incredibly, sustained their challenge. At the end of March they became odds-on favorites for the first time and, in May, won the first top-flight title in the club’s history. All of this was something we may never see again.
1. Aguerooooooooooooooo (2012)
There has simply never been a single moment in the entire Premier League history, that brought the season down to the literal last seconds and had the maximum possible significance: a goal that settled the title itself. No equivocation, no caveats, no time for anything else. Pure spectacle and pure pandemonium.
Manchester City and Manchester United started the final day of the season level on points. With minutes of their respective games remaining, United were set to become champions once more. But then came the twist: Edin Dzeko scored for City in stoppage time to level at home against QPR, giving Roberto Mancini’s men hope — but they needed to win.
With the last kick of the match, along came Sergio Aguero, dancing into the box… Mario Balotelli found the Argentine, who struck low into the bottom-left corner. Ecstasy for the men in blue. City won the title for the first time in 44 years.
We have repeated this in many of our articles, we will repeat it once more, ”City should build a statue of Aguero scoring that goal once he retires from football”.
