For many, the Premier League is the most exciting football league to watch in the world, and by looking at the quality of the teams, players and stadiums, it is difficult to argue against that. Quality teams bring quality football, so almost every week we are treated with goal fests thanks to the attacking nature of the Premier League.

With all that being said, let’s take a look at the biggest wins in Premier League history.
Liverpool 9-0 Bournemouth
Liverpool started the 2022/23 season in a sluggish form, and the Bournemouth game at Anfield followed a draining 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford from the fierce rivals Manchester United. The Reds were under severe pressure to deliver, and they did so in an emphatic manner.
Luis Diaz started and finished the goal show with goals in the 3rd and the 85th minute. Between those goals, Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Roberto Firmino, Virgil van Dijk, Fabio Carvalho, and an own goal from Chris Mepham helped secure a historic win.
This game has also had negative repercussions for Scott Parker, the Bournemouth manager, who was sacked right after the game.
Manchester United 9-0 Southampton
Old Trafford witnessed a 9-0 thrashing on 2 February 2021, when Ralf Hassenhutl’s Southampton were the visitors. The hosts were heavily helped by the Alexandre Jankewitz red card after just 2 minutes in the game. Prior to the red card, he didn’t even touch the ball, that is how bad the game started for the visitors.
Seven Manchester United players got on the scoresheet, so it was a great day for all Red Devils around the world.
Southampton 0-9 Leicester
Before 25 October 2019, Leicester never won a Premier League match on a Friday, but that unlucky trend was about to end in style. The Foxes played more games on Friday without winning than any other team in the Premier League, with 5 defeats in 7 games.
However, hat-tricks from both Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez ensured that St Mary's crowd witnessed the biggest away victory by an away side in Premier League history.
Manchester United 9-0 Ipswich
We are back with the Red Devils once again, this time we go back in time. Second-placed United hosted the 19th-placed Ipswich on 4 March 1995. Sir Alex Ferguson was without the services of Eric Cantona, who served a 5-match ban, but that didn’t stop his team from thrashing the visitors.
This defeat surely had a big impact on Ipswich’s confidence, as they went on to win just 4 points from the remaining 11 games, and they finished bottom of the league, 18 points from safety.
Manchester City 8-0 Watford
It is perhaps a bit strange to mention Manchester City only once in this list, as they have been known for their free-flowing football for the past decade. The 8-0 victory against Watford came on 21 September 2019, with the visitors already having their second manager of the season.
City were 5-0 up after just 18 minutes, and perhaps Watford can consider themselves lucky not to concede even more than the 8 games after 90 minutes.
Southampton 8-0 Sunderland
In the build-up to this game, Ronald Koeman, who was the Southampton manager at the time, said that it will be a difficult game as Sunderland is a very strong and organized team. Even he couldn’t predict what was coming at St Mary’s in October 2014.
Sunderland were not helped by the three own goals scored in the game, and it was a day to forget for them.
Chelsea 8-0 Aston Villa
This was the second 8-0 by Chelsea in the space of just two and a half years. In 2010, the Blues won against Wigan with this scoreline, and in 2012, Aston Villa were the victims.
Aston Villa were a team in form prior to visiting Stamford Bridge, with them being unbeaten in five games, and just a week before this game, they won 3-1 away at Anfield. However, things quickly turned bitter for Paul Lambert’s team, as they were thrashed 8-0 in a fabulous Chelsea performance.
