3 best matches of the Premier League era

The Premier League is regarded as the most competitive league in the world. Every year, we get to see 20 best English clubs fiercely competing and giving a display of their great talent. At the top, best teams compete for the Premier League title and Champions League positions while lower ranked teams fight for survival to remain in the Premier League.

To have an idea about the competitiveness of the Premier League, just look at this year’s fierce competition between Manchester City and Liverpool for the title. Klopp’s team who lost only a single league game so far and are currently on a 15 games unbeaten run looks to be losing the title because their rivals are so perfect that they won’t even drop a single point through a defeat or a draw. That’s why Manchester City are priced at 1/2 for winning the Premier League title with Betway Sports. With Bet365, Guardiola’s side are priced at 8/15 for the league title. But for Liverpool, it’s not all over and they still have a chance. They are currently priced at 13/8 with Coral.

At the bottom of the table, the relegation battle is over for Fulham and Huddersfield but there is still some uncertainty as to who will be the third relegation team. Coral is offering a price of 8/1 for Brighton’s relegation while Betfred’s price for the relegation of Crystal Palace is 33/1.

1- Liverpool 4 Arsenal 4 (2009)
The Anfield encounter between Arsenal and Liverpool in 2009 is regarded as one of the greatest matches in the history of the Premier League. Liverpool was in contention with Manchester United for the Premier League title and so it was very important to win this match. And it didn’t look like a big challenge for Rafa Benitez’s side who had Torres, Carragher, Mascherano, and Xabi in their squad.

There was only one goal in the first half and that was delivered by Arsenal’s Arshavin. Liverpool were the better side after the break as Torres and Benayoun fired them ahead with two brilliant goals. However, Arshavin came to haunt the Gunners in the second half too as he struck twice in the space of 3 minutes. Anfield erupted as Torres hauled his team level, but Arshavin seemed to seal the fate of the game as he grabbed his 4th goal in the 90th minute of the game. But the game took one final twist as Benayoun scored. Liverpool didn’t win the league title, but at least they provided a great footballing display at Anfield.

2- Manchester United 4 Manchester City 3 (2009)
Manchester City had spent a lot of money in the summer of 2009. They had even brought Carlos Tevez from Manchester United. Yet, they failed to beat their fiercest rivals Manchester United.
Manchester City had done very well to strike back every time Manchester United got ahead. Goals from Barry and Bellamy canceled out the 3 United goals from Rooney and Fletcher. However, Manchester United had the last laugh as Michael Owen struck deep into stoppage time to get the victory for his team.

3- Tottenham 3 Manchester United 5 (2001)
This was probably one of the greatest comeback victories of Manchester United. It was simply an inconceivable scoreline after Manchester United went down 3-0 in the first half.

The Spurs’ £8m new signing Richards had a dream start as he grabbed the opener for his team. Then, Les Ferdinand and Christian Ziege scored to make it look like victory was at hand. However, the Spurs’ fans would never be able to forget what happened in the second half of the game. Not only Spurs were denied the victory, but that they were beaten comfortably in the end.

What Sir Alex Ferguson said during the break nobody knew but the United that came after the break were a totally different team. Within a minute of the restart, Andy Cole struck a goal for United. Then, Laurent Blanc headed a goal followed by one from Van Nistelrooy. To compound Spurs’ misery, Veron and Beckham also got on the scoresheet. This sort of a comeback is very rarely seen in the English football.
