Have you ever wondered what the biggest losses in the Premier League seem like? The Premier League is the most admired soccer League in the FIFA ranking of European Leagues. The league is full of iconic moments with talented stars bagging multiple and sensational goals for their teams.
However, on the other hand, the Premier League rarely has a team to go ruthlessly against another team in a game.
Well, even though it is rare to see a shocking scoreline in the Premier League matches as opposed to Bundesliga matches, there are still notable ones that I will be listing as the biggest losses in the Premier League such as Manchester United losing 7 – 0 to Liverpool in the just concluded season.
Top 10 Biggest Losses In The Premier League
1. Liverpool 9 – 0 Bournemouth (2022)
Liverpool is arguably one of the best teams in the world and we have seen them prove themselves in England, Europe, and the world.
The Merseyside club has won a total of 19 EPL titles, 6 UEFA Champions League, and another double figure of the FA Cup title. Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp has emerged as one of the best teams as they proved it again against Bournemouth in 2022.
Despite having a worst Premier League season, the Reds successfully scored 9 goals against Bournemouth with the help of their German tactician, Jurgen Klopp
Moreover, the match rounded up with seven different scorers with their key player, Mohammed Salah missing from the scoresheet.
2. Manchester United 9 – 0 Ipswich Town (1995)
Manchester United is a Premier League club with the most EPL titles, EPL match wins, and UEFA Champions League match wins.
The 20th-time winner of the EPL title followed by Liverpool is arguably the first EPL side that went ruthlessly in delivering a shocking scoreline of 9 – 0 in a single EPL game which was against Ipswich.
In the 1994 – 95 season, Manchester United brutally whipped Ipswich Town, their stars, Roy Keane, Mark Hughes, Paul Ince, and Andy Cole were the scorers of the 9 goals.
Also, Manchester United are on the list of teams with the heaviest defeat in the EPL.
3. Manchester United 9 – 0 Southampton (2021)
2021 was one of the best years Ole Gunnar Solskjaer managed at Manchester United before the legendary United boss stepped down on his role as Manchester United manager following losses that the team faced.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was building the United team into going ruthless against EPL teams and we saw that against Chelsea which he defeated 4 – 0 and Southampton which was a heavy 9 – 0.
On 2 February 2021, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side trashed Southampton 9 – 0 using 8 different scorers.
However, the match helped Manchester United gain more chances to win the Premier League that season but Manchester City was a better side.
4. Leicester City 9 – 0 Southampton (2019)
It saddens most fans including me that Leicester City has been relegated to the championship following a woeful season by the Foxes.
Well, I am pretty sure that they will return even as a better side. Leicester City came from Championship into the Premier League, and within that space, they successfully lifted the Premier League and Carabao Cup which seem as something impossible for a team coming from Championship.
Despite losing key players such as Riyad Mahrez, N’golo Kante, Harry Maguire, and others, Leicester City displayed their brilliance in the 2019/20 season against Southampton by thrashing the Saints 9 without getting a reply. Former Leicester defender Ben Chilwell opened the scoring and Ayoze Perez wrapped up the match with a hat-trick.
5. Tottenham Hotspur 9 – 1 Wigan (2009)
Tottenham Hotspur has always been a better EPL side although the team often gets mocked by fans for always ending most of their seasons without having a trophy to show to their fans.
In 2009/10, arguably, Tottenham was on fire. They finished fourth that season, qualifying for the UEFA Champions League campaign after they last did in 1962.
Still, in that season, Tottenham Hotspur went all against Wigan by scoring 9 goals with the help of Peter Crouch, Jermaine Defoe, Aaron Lennon, David Bentley, and Niko Kranjcar. Luckily, Wigan Athletic replied with a single goal which was not worth celebrating.
6. Manchester City 8 – 0 Watford (2019)
Before being relegated to the championship, Watford’s most suffered defeat was against Manchester City in 2019.
On the list of heaviest defeats in Premier League history, Manchester City also have been in this situation. Well, this time around the team turned out to be the one trashing their opponent 8 goals to nil.
On 21 September 2021, Manchester City went ‘beast mode’ against Watford as they ruthlessly scored Watford 8 goals without getting a single reply. Riyad Mahrez, David Silva, and Sergio Aguero scored some amazing goals against the Hornets.
7. Newcastle United 8 – 0 Sheffield Wednesday (1999)
Before trying to be back to their best, Newcastle United in the late 90s was one of the teams that dominated the Premier League.
In Alan Shearer, the Magpies bagged multiples of goals in a single match and their game against Sheffield Wednesday on 19th September 1999 is a memorable one.
Newcastle went all against Sheffield Wednesday to score 8 goals without getting a single reply from the opponent. In this match, Alan Shearer scored 5 goals to help the Magpies register one of their biggest victories in the Premier League.
8. Chelsea 8 – 0 Aston Villa (2012)
The just concluded season happens to be a season Chelsea fans will always remember as they fought for one point to stay off relegation.
However, the immediately ended season can not define Chelsea, the best London side. On the list of biggest victories in the Premier League, Chelsea have managed to write their name twice.
Under Rafa Benitez on 23 December 2012, Chelsea went ruthlessly against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea produced 7 different scorers which included Eden Hazard, Oscar, and David Luiz.
9. Chelsea 8 – 0 Wigan Athletic (2010)
Before moving on with Carlos Ancelotti due to bad days, Chelsea also had some memorable days they can not easily forget with the present Real Madrid boss, Carlos Ancelotti.
In 2010, Carlos Ancelotti’s side, The Blues turned it all against Wigan Athletic in a single EPL game by destroying the opponent with 8 goals to nil under their fans’ watch at Stamford Bridge.
That season was one of the best seasons Chelsea had under Roman Abramovich. The Blues grabbed 103 points in that season which made them the most terrifying EPL side.
10. Middlesbrough 8 – 1 Manchester City (2008)
It might be surprising to see Manchester City on the list of Premier League teams with the heaviest defeats if you just started to watch EPL after 2008.
During the 2007/08 season, Middlesbrough scored goals against the Citizens. Alfonso Alves was the star of that match, scoring a hat-trick. Well, the show did not end with Middlesbrough scoring 8 goals, Manchester City scored a consolation goal though.
In the just concluded season, the heaviest defeat a team has faced in the EPL is Bournemouth facing a 9 – 0 defeat against Liverpool.
Well, it was only shocking that Liverpool who started the season roughly scored 9 goals against helpless Bournemouth.
Still, in the just concluded season, Liverpool returned by scoring 7 goals against Manchester United at Anfield. Liverpool recorded the most victories in the 2022/23 season despite failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
