1. Tottenham 9-1 Wigan. 22/11/2009
One of the first times a Premier League side offered to reimburse the travelling fans for the cost of their tickets. To make matters worse, Wigan had only been 1-0 down at half-time before Jermain Defoe scored FIVE goals in the second half. Niko Kranjcar put the icing on the cake in injury time.
2. Middlesbrough 8-1 Manchester City. 11/05/2008
Oh, the days before the takeover. Richard Dunne’s red card left a gaping void in Manchester city's defence and Stewart Downing, Afonso Alves, Adam Johnson, Fábio Rochemback and Jérémie Aliadière exploited it. Elano scored a late consolation.
3. Stoke 6-1 Liverpool.24/05/2015
Liverpool's heaviest top-flight defeat since 1963 just happened to come in Steven Gerrard’s final game. What should have been a fitting send-off for the legendary skipper turned into a complete nightmare with his side falling to a 5-0 deficit by half-time. According to Ryan Shawcross, the Stoke players were so speechless in the dressing room they simply burst out laughing.
4. Manchester United 1-6 Manchester City. 23/10/2011
A result you might expect after Ferguson, but not when he was still in charge. It was United’s worst home loss since February 1955 and prompted Mario Balotelli’s legendary. But nobody could have predicted just how big a win it was for City,those three points helped them to the title, which was won over United on goal difference, just months later.
5. Manchester United 8-2 Arsenal.
Admittedly, Arsene Wenger was up against it with injuries and had to field a defence of Carl Jenkinson, Johan Djourou, Laurent Koscielny, and Armand Traoré. That’s no excuse for what happened though, with Ferguson visibly bewildered in his post-match interview. “When you play Arsenal you don’t expect a result like that,” he said. Well, quite.
6. Manchester United 9-0 Ipswich Town. 04/03/1995
For a long time, Manchester United's 9-0 mauling of Ipswich was unmatched as the record win in the Premier League era.
7. MK Dons 4-0 Manchester United. 26/08/2014
United have suffered plenty of dispiriting lows in the post-Fergie era but perhaps none more so than when they were thrashed by League One MK Dons. Louis van Gaal may not have fielded his strongest side, but it still featured David de Gea, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck, Jonny Evans, Anderson and Shinji Kagawa.
8. Newcastle 5-1 Tottenham. 15/05/2016
Having already caved in pursuit of the Premier League title, Tottenham needed to avoid defeat to ensure they finished above Arsenal for the first time in two decades. Easy, right, with a trip to already relegated Newcastle? The Magpies were also down to ten men.
