5. Man United 9-0 Ipswich, 4th March 1995:
Man United were in second place chasing the title, where they were already premier league winners for the previous 2 years consecutively but this time behind table toppers Blackburn. Ipswich were the winners of the last fixture between them by 3-2, but this return fixture was a real surprise. Just after 16 minutes when Keane broke the deadlock, goal hungry A.Cole scored a double at the end of the first 45 minutes. Then came the disaster for Ipswich, when they got thrashed by 6 more goals in the second half where A.Cole ended up scoring 5 of the goals, Mark ‘Sparky’ Hughes clinching 2 and Paul Ince also in the list with one.
It ultimately resulted in relegation for Ipswich and Man United finished the season second with a difference of one point.
4. Man United 1-6 Manchester City, 23rd October 2011:
This is probably one of the most prestigious and heavy losses Man United has suffered ever against their neighbours’ City. ‘The noisy neighbours’, as quoted by Sir Alex, were doing much more than making noise. David Silva’s footwork just fuelled up the play more where just in the opening minutes, Mario Balotelli opened the book with the famous shirt reveal, ‘Why Always Me?’, followed by Johnny Evans being sent off, which made the reds more vulnerable. Balotelli doubled his tally followed by Fletcher getting one back for United, and then Aguero. Edin Dzeko was substituted for Mario where he scored a sublime goal, and later on Silva putting his name on the list which he deserved. Dzeko again put one in the back of the nets in ‘Fergie time’ with a low left-footed effort.
3. Tottenham 9-1 Wigan, 22nd November 2009:
Tottenham back in 2009 was known to be bold and in an upbeat of attacking play. Back in a cold night of 2009, no one would have even predicted this kind of a result. After the second have, came the goals, so did the thrashing for Wigan. Peter Crouch opened by heading one in the back of the net, followed by the deadly Defoe scoring a 7-minute hat trick, being the second fastest hat trick in PL history. Wigan keeper Chris Kirkland was in all time action where he had to work overtime and deliver some astonishing saves, otherwise, the score line would have been much worse.
Aaron Lennon scored the 5th one, Defoe scored twice after that, in 69 and 87 minutes. David Bentley put one in the back of the nets and later on Nico Kranjcar put a full stop with the finishing goal.
2. Man United 8-2 Arsenal, 28th August 2011:
Arsenal was a continual threat for glory alongside Manchester United, but this time they faced one of the heaviest defeats the Gunners have suffered ever since 1896.Danny Welbeck who is presently playing for Arsenal, broke the deadlock on 22 minutes with a header back into the net. The Gunners even missed a penalty and failed to level.
Ashley Young, just 2 minutes later, scored a cracker, followed by Wayne Rooney’s free-kick. Although Walcott took one back for Arsenal, Rooney hammered another free-kick in 68th minute, followed by Nani and Park both putting their name on the score sheet, before Van Persie pulled another back to make it 6-2.
Carl Jenkinson was shown a red card, which made the hard, even harder. Rooney completed his hat-trick from a spot kick and the goal flood was put to an end in stoppage time when Young scored another sublime curler in yet another 25-yard ambitious try.
1. Chelsea 8-0 Wigan, 9th May 2010:

Nicolas Anelka helped the blues take an early lead at just 6 mins.
After 32 minutes, Gary Caldwell was sent off as he hurled down on Lampard and he scored from the resultant spot-kick. Saloman Kalou and one more for Nicolas Anelka made it 2 more, before Didier Drogba headed in a 5th from a Lampard cross, with 2 more goals later on making it 7-0.
Ashley Cole put a full stop with his finish which made joy flow in masses in the blues’ stands. It is their biggest victory till date in their history and they finished the season scoring 103 goals – which is still a Premier League record.
