Every year, the Premier League table (also known as ตารางพรีเมียร์ลีก in Thai) changes its ranking position continuously because of its high-class performances and dramatic matches. If you are a football enthusiast, you will surely know the matches that go down in Premier League history that we will talk about below.
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal (February 5, 2011)
Newcastle is often remembered with the image of a team that easily give up and lost its advantage when faced with adversity. But in the game against Arsenal in early 2011, they proved otherwise. Newcastle was led 4-0 by Arsenal at the break. But in the second half, when Arsenal had to play without people, Newcastle rose and did the unthinkable. The man who sealed a 4-0 win for Newcastle was Cheick Tiote, with a perfect long shot. It was the player’s only goal in seven seasons at Newcastle.
MU 4-3 Man City (September 21, 2009)
Without this match, perhaps many MU fans would forget that Michael Owen had time to play for them, even wearing the number 7 shirt. The former prodigy of English football will live forever in the history of football. The Manchester derby with a goal in the 90+6 minutes of the confrontation took place in September 2009. It was a perfect combination: Giggs’ pass was perfect and so was Owen’s drop and jab into the far corner.
Liverpool 4-4 Arsenal (April 21, 2009)
At the time of welcoming Arsenal, Liverpool was experiencing the most brilliant season under coach Rafa Benitez. Winning for them is extremely important, because if they beat MU, they will become the leaders of the table. And that seems to be an easy task when Arsenal is almost out of motivation (above Aston Villa in 5th to 7th place). What Liverpool failed to count was Andrey Arshavin’s incredible form. The Russian player alone scored all 4 goals for Arsenal at Anfield, contributing to breaking the will of The Kop.
Arsenal 2-4 MU (February 1, 2005)
This match is remembered by an “incident” in the tunnel. Roy Keane swore violence at Patrick Vieira for daring to “struggle” with Gary Neville. However, it is also because of that incident that people forget that this is one of the highest quality matches in Premier League history. Arsenal took a 2-1 lead after the break, but in the end, MU was able to leave Highbury with all three points thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliant performance in the second half.
Tottenham 3-5 MU (September 29, 2001)
One of the matches that most clearly showed the so-called “MU spirit”. The home team of White Hart Lane had a jubilant first half and took the lead to 3-0. Entering the break, no one believed that MU could get even 1 point. But the unbelievable happened. In the second half, MU scored a circuit of 5 goals by … 5 different players including Andy Cole, Laurent Blanc, Van Nistelrooy, Veron, and Beckham. However, coach Ferguson after the game was still very angry.
Some side stories and tensions occur during the game, but there is no denying the quality of expertise and the dedication of the players until the last minute to bring satisfaction to the viewers. In your opinion, are these the best Premier League matches?
