It goes without saying that premier League is the most competitive league in the world. Many great players and managers operate in this league. This league has produced many great matches over its history and today we will have a look at some of the best Premier League matches ever.
From Sergio Aguero’s last gasp title winning goal to Manchester United’s hammering of Arsenal, from Tottenham’s mauling of Wigan to Liverpool’s comeback against Norwich, this list has it all. Here are the 20 best Premier League matches ever.
20. Norwich 4-5 Liverpool (Jan,2016)
Adam Lallana’s injury-time strike saw Liverpool edge a nine-goal thriller at Norwich in one of the most dramatic Premier League games of the season.
The Reds went 1-0 ahead with Roberto Firmino’s goal but Dieumerci’s Mbokani’s back heel levelled and Steven Naismith’s debut strike put the home side in front.
Wes Hoolahan added a penalty before Jordan Henderson and Firmino struck,making it 3-3.Then James Milner put the away side ahead and though Sebastien Bassong netted in added time to send Carrow Road in wild celebrations as they thought Norwich have managed to earn a point,but Lallana scored in added time to win for the Reds.
19. Wigan 3-2 Arsenal (April,2010)
Arsenal went into the match still in with a shout of the title and after 48 minutes looked on course to stay in the hunt as well leave the hosts in relegation trouble following goals from Theo Walcott and Mikael Silvestre.
But then Wigan produced a turnaround to match any in Premier League history as they boosted their hopes of avoiding relegation by coming from two goals down in the last 11 minutes to earn a 3-2 win and leave Arsenal’s title aspirations in tatters.
With 80 minutes on the clock at the DW Stadium, Roberto Martinez’s Wigan Athletic were two goals down,but from absolutely nowhere Wigan staged a remarkable resurrection as first Ben Watson restored hope after meeting Victor Moses’ cutback from the byline and then Titus Bramble capitalised from a dreadful blunder from Lukasz Fabianski.
The drama was not done though and a minute into stoppage time, Charles N’Zogbia’s curling effort effectively ensured Wigan were safe for another year while all but ending Arsenal’s title hopes. This is undoubtedly, one of the best Premier League matches ever.
18. Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal (March,2014)
Arsene Wenger’s 1,000th game in charge of Arsenal turned out to be an occasion to forget for the Frenchman as his team were crushed by rivals Chelsea.
Arsenal were two behind after seven minutes, with first Samuel Eto’o and then Andre Schurrle benefiting from clinical Chelsea counter-attacking.
Eden Hazard’s penalty after a Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain handball all but finished the match as a contest.Oscar scored twice before Mohamed Salah inflicted more pain on the Gunners,making it 6-0 in favour of Chelsea.
17. Tottenham Hotspur 9-1 Wigan Athletic (Nov,2009)
Tottenham became just the second team to hammer in nine goals in a Premier League match, with an utterly ruthless second half display that left Wigan shell-shocked.
Jermain Defoe scored a seven-minute hat-trick and five overall as Aaron Lennon, David Bentley and Niko Kranjcar also piled in with goals to strengthen their charge for a Champions League place under Harry Redknapp.
16. Manchester United 8-2 Arsenal (Aug,2011)
Wayne Rooney was United’s inspiration with the sixth hat-trick of his Old Trafford career, but Ashley Young also made his mark with two stunning goals. Danny Welbeck, Nani and Park Ji-sung were the other scorers for United.
Theo Walcott reduced United’s three-goal advantage on the stroke of half-time but Robin van Persie’s strike late in the second half-represented no measure of consolation for a dispirited, broken Arsenal.
