What is the biggest win in Premier League history?

Manchester United has secured two of the three biggest Premier League wins in history, with Old Trafford securing both the first and last of the nine-goal victories, 26 years apart. Manchester City has an 8-0 victory (2019) and a 7-0 victory (2021). The world-famous league runs from August to May, with teams playing each other at home and away throughout the season, for a total of 380 matches, with each team receiving 38 games. A win is worth three points, a draw is worth one point, and a defeat is worth none, with the team with the most points at the end of the season winning the Premier League title.

The Premier League’s great success is that it manages to be the best league in the world despite not having the best players. The Premier League’s power and enduring appeal stem from the excitement it provides and its inherent competitiveness, rather than the quality of its football. Take a  look at the Premier League’s biggest wins.

Biggest Premier League Win

1. ManUtd 9-0 Ipswich Town, 4 Mar 1995

Manchester United defeated Ipswich Town at Old Trafford in March 1995, coming off a 1-0 defeat to lowly Everton at Goodison Park the week before. United was missing the talismanic Eric Cantona, who had inexplicably kicked a fan in the chest in their 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace five days earlier. Before the incident, Cantona had scored 18 goals in 21 Premier League appearances for United, and the club was dealt another blow when league top-scorer Andrei Kanchelskis (13 goals) handed in a transfer request on the eve of this match.

Sir Alex Ferguson was forced to start out-of-form Mark Hughes, who had only five goals in 22 league appearances in 1994-95 before the game, alongside new signing Andy Cole. Cole had only two goals in six league appearances for United after joining from Newcastle for a then-British transfer record fee of £6 million. Cole had scored twice in 12 Premier League games before this match, including his time at Newcastle, and the pressure was on him to find the goals in Cantona’s absence. He did exactly that, finding his scoring boots and netting five goals in this game. The route was completed by Roy Keane, Hughes (two), and Paul Ince.

2. Liverpool 9-0 Bournemouth, 27 Aug 2022

Liverpool 9-0 Bournemouth, 27 Aug 2022

Liverpool knew they needed a positive result against Bournemouth in their fourth match of the 2022-23 Premier League season after winning just two points in their first three games. Winning 9-0 certainly gave their fans a good feeling. For the first time since September 1989, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool team scored nine goals in a single Premier League game against Crystal Palace (9-0). This was their second-largest margin of victory in league history (also 9-0 v Crystal Palace in 1989 and 10-1 v Rotherham Town in 1896).

After the first 45 minutes, the signs were ominous for Bournemouth. At halftime, the Reds had scored five goals in a single half of top-flight league football for the first time since October 1927, when they defeated Portsmouth. Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino had a fun afternoon at Anfield as Scott Parker became the first Premier League manager to see his team concede nine goals while wearing a cardigan. In the rout, the Brazilian scored two goals and assisted on three more, making him only the third Liverpool player to have a hand in five Premier League goals in a single match, joining Mohamed Salah against Watford in March 2018 and Luis Suárez against Norwich in December 2013.

Further good news for the Reds came in the form of goals from Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho (both 19), marking the first time in Premier League history that two different teenagers scored in the same game.

3. Manchester United 9-0 Southampton, 2 Feb 2021

Manchester United 9-0 Southampton, 2 Feb 2021

Manchester United’s second appearance on this list, despite sandwiching the two thrashings with a 7-0 victory over Barnsley in 1997 and an 8-1 demolition of Nottingham Forest in 1999. As if one 9-0 thrashing by Leicester City wasn’t enough for Southampton and Ralph Hasenhuttl, they were subjected to a repeat nightmare just 15 months later. Old Trafford saw its second 9-0 scoreline in Premier League history, but this time United was greatly aided by a red card to Alexandre Jankewitz just one minute and 22 seconds into the game. He didn’t get a single touch of the ball before attempting to tackle Scott McTominay, and he didn’t get a single touch of the ball after the tackle.

On the night, seven different United players scored, matching a Premier League record for a club in a single game set by Chelsea against Aston Villa in December 2012. Southampton defender Jan Bednarek also scored for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in this thrashing. With a penalty conceded and a red card (later rescinded), he later completed a one-of-a-kind hat trick in the game, becoming the first player in Premier League history.

With Bednarek’s own goal, it was the first time in Manchester United’s history that eight different players scored in a competitive match, surpassing seven in their 10-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1892. Remember their midfielder James Ward-Prowse, who was the only player to play the entire two 9-0 losses just 15 months apart.

4. Southampton 0-9 Leicester City, 25 Oct 2019

Leicester City had never won a Premier League match before October 2019, with five defeats in those seven games. They’d lost more games on that day of the week than any other team in the competition’s history. They were about to put an end to that run in grand style. Only two teams in Premier League history have had two hat-trick scorers in the same game. Robert Pires and Jermaine Pennant both scored trebles for Arsenal in a 6-1 win over Southampton in May 2003, and Saints suffered the same fate in a 9-0 loss to Leicester City in 2019.

This time, Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez scored hat tricks in the win at St Mary’s Stadium, which was the biggest away win in English top-flight league history. Perez’s hat trick gave him trebles in two Premier League games against Southampton, having previously done so for Newcastle United six months earlier. In doing so, he became the first player since Luis Suarez against Norwich City in September 2012 to do so in back-to-back Premier League appearances against the same opponent. Leicester City led 5-0 at halftime, similar to Manchester City’s 8-0 win over Watford. This was the 91st game of the 2019-20 season, and a team-leading 5-0 at halftime had already happened twice this season, something that had only happened twice in the previous Premier League season’s history.
