After Newcastle United's emphatic 8-0 win against Sheffield United on Sunday, we have taken a look at the biggest victories in Premier League history.

Man Utd 9-0 Ipswich

Andrew Cole was in ominous form as Manchester United became the first team to register a 9-0 victory.

He scored five goals in the rout at Old Trafford against Ipswich Town which included a Mark Hughes brace and strikes from Roy Keane and Paul Ince.

Though Man Utd were pipped to the Premier League title by Blackburn Rovers, their incredible triumph will be fondly remembered by their supporters.

Southampton 0-9 Leicester

There would be a 24-year wait for the next joint-biggest victory in the top flight, but when it happened, Leicester City supporters revelled in their Friday night triumph at St Mary's Stadium.

Ayoze Perez and Jamie Vardy both claimed a match ball after scoring hat-tricks as the Foxes moves up to third in the table at the time.

Their trebles also meant it was only the second time in the competition's history that two players scored three goals each in the same match, with the other being when Jermaine Pennant and Robert Pires netted three times apiece in Arsenal's 6-1 win over the Saints in May 2003.

Leicester's 9-0 success on the south coast is the biggest away victory to date.

Man Utd 9-0 Southampton

Two of the clubs involved in the first two 9-0 scorelines featured in the third as Man Utd enjoyed their second victory by that margin, while Southampton, for the second consecutive season, were on the wrong end.

United raced into a 4-0 half-time lead thanks to goals from Aaron Wan-Bissaka, one of only two Premier League goals he's scored for the club, Marcus Rashford, a Jan Bednarek own goal and Edinson Cavani.

A double from Anthony Martial, along with goals by Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes and Daniel James, rounded off the scoring.

At the time, the result put Man Utd within three points of leaders Manchester City.

The Red Devils went on to end the campaign in second place, their highest finish since they won the title in 2012/13.

Liverpool 9-0 AFC Bournemouth

Though Liverpool endured an indifferent 2022/23, they still had some memorable moments, including this outstanding success against AFC Bournemouth at Anfield.

TV Info

Having come into the match without any wins from their first three Premier League matches, Jurgen Klopp's side ensured it would not be a nervy afternoon as they raced into a 5-0 lead at half-time.

Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho scored their first Premier League goals for the club while Roberto Firmino produced a hat-trick of assists.

The match would also prove to be Scott Parker's last in charge of Bournemouth.
