6. Newcastle 8-0 Sheffield Wednesday (1999)

Ruud Gullit resigned after Newcastle lost four of their first five games in the 1999/00 campaign, paving the way for Bobby Robson to arrive on Tyneside in September. The Magpies had lost two more before this game, but made Bobby’s St. James’ Park debut against Sheffield Wednesday one to remember as the Gallowgate Godfather pulled off a famous victory.

Five goals from Alan Shearer (including two penalties), plus efforts from Aaron Hughes, Kieron Dyer and Gary Speed helped the Geordies kick-start their season. They eventually finished 11th.

One of four 8-0 wins in Premier League history – but this time City was on the right end of a trouncing.

Their opening salvo was astonishing at the Etihad Stadium: David Silva scored after 52 seconds, and within 18 minutes they were 5-0 up after goals from Sergio Aguero, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and Nicolas Otamendi.

Mercifully for Watford, there was a breather – but the Hornets crumbled again within three minutes of the second half and allowed Bernardo his hat-trick by the hour mark. Kevin De Bruyne put the cherry on top with five minutes remaining to cap a masterful individual display.

Chelsea knew a victory on the final day of the season would secure them their first title since 2006. Suffice to say, they didn’t muck about in getting it done.

Didier Drogba got a hat-trick and Nicolas Anelka added two more, while Ashley Cole, Salomon Kalou and Frank Lampard were also among a beleaguered Latics’ nemeses. Unsurprisingly, Wigan ended the season with a goal difference of -42… and this wasn’t even their worst humbling of the campaign.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea became the first team in English history to score seven or more goals on four occasions in a league season. They also became the first Premier League side to bag 100 in a season after putting away a club-record 103 in the campaign.

Paul Lambert’s Aston Villa suffered their biggest Premier League defeat in December at Stamford Bridge – and it could have been even worse had Lucas Piazon not seen an 89th-minute penalty saved.

After a smashing 3-1 away win at Anfield a week earlier, the Villans went into this game full of confidence; confidence which was quickly shattered when Fernando Torres opened the scoring within three minutes. David Luiz and Branislav Ivanovic added more before the break, while Frank Lampard, Ramires (two), Oscar and Eden Hazard all got among the fun before full-time.

It was the first – and still the only – time that seven players from one team have scored in a Premier League match. The result was Rafa Benitez’s biggest victory in English football, eclipsing the 6-0 win he achieved with Liverpool over Derby in 2007.

3. Tottenham 9-1 Wigan (2009)

Tottenham finished fourth in 2009/10, meaning they qualified for Europe’s elite competition for the first time since 1962. This result certainly did that achievement no harm as they ended the campaign three points ahead of Manchester City.

Let it be remembered that Spurs were only 1-0 ahead at half-time in this obliteration of a carefree Wigan. Forty-two minutes passed between Peter Crouch’s ninth-minute opener and Jermain Defoe’s first of five goals on this most profitable of afternoons at White Hart Lane. Aaron Lennon, David Bentley and Niko Kranjcar were also on target in north London.

It was only the second time that a Premier League side had scored nine goals, and the third that a player had netted five in a Premier League match. Wigan still finished six points above the relegation zone.

Unlike a lot of the trouncings in this list, goals here were neatly spread throughout the game.

Andy Cole helped himself to five, Mark Hughes plundered two, while Roy Keane and Paul Ince both added solitary strikes in what was United’s biggest victory for 103 years. Blackburn claimed the title that season, though, with Fergie’s men finishing second.

1. Southampton 0-9 Leicester

A remarkable way to honour a remarkable man. About a year ago, Leicester City lost their beloved chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after a horrific helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium. Here, with the visiting fans holding aloft white scarves in his honour, Foxes players did him justice with this devastating display on the south coast.

Southampton were onto a hiding in the 10th minute when Ben Chilwell slotted Leicester ahead, and in the same passage saw Ryan Bertrand sent off via a VAR-assisted decision. It was 3-0 inside 19 minutes courtesy of efforts from Youri Tielemans and Ayoze Perez, who ended the game with a hat-trick. James Maddison netted a wonderful eighth with a free-kick, sandwiching hat-trick goals from Jamie Vardy – the last, a stoppage-time penalty which befitted this all-time biggest Premier League away win.
