Remembering Liverpool’s biggest ever Premier League wins

Last season’s title success may have been Liverpool’s first of the Premier League era, but the Reds have been one of the best teams in the division for much of the existence of the league.

One of the few clubs to have appeared in every Premier League season so far, the Merseyside club have given their fair share of beating with huge scores recorded over the years.

We decided to take a look back at some of the Reds’ most compelling wins, here are Liverpool’s biggest wins of the Premier League era.

Liverpool 6-0 Manchester City – 1995

The rivalry between Liverpool and Manchester City has intensified in recent years with the two sides’ regular rivals for large silverware, although the latter looked very different in outfit in the mid-1990s and found themselves falling victim to ‘a hammering at Anfield in 1995.

City had failed to win in their first 10 league games were heading for relegation when they made the short trip to Merseyside, a game that ended in a 6-0 victory for the hosts who scored twice in the first five minutes thanks to Ian Rush and Jamie Redknapp.

Liverpool had beaten City 4-0 in the League Cup days earlier and had done two better after a punitive second-half performance, Robbie Fowler shooting at home a third after a soaring run from Mark Wright.

Neil Ruddock powered a home header to make four before Fowler and Rush doubled their personal results for the afternoon, a resounding victory for the Reds over a City side that were relegated at the end of the countryside.

Ipswich 0-6 Liverpool – 2002

Liverpool had established themselves as major silver contender in the early 2000s under Gerard Houllier, winning a hat-trick in the UEFA Cup, FA Cup and League Cup in the 2000/01 campaign before finishing second in the Premier League the following season.

Houllier’s side saw their title push gain momentum after a visit to Ipswich in February 2002, hitting the home side in form for six with Emile Heskey and Michael Owen each scoring twice.

Ipswich entered the contest after winning seven of their previous eight Premier League appearances, but failed to prove a game for the creeping Reds, who moved closer to the top after securing a complete victory at Portman Road.

Abel Xavier – in his debut after signing at Everton – and Sami Hyypia were also on the scoresheet for the visitors, with the victory stopping Ipswich’s mini-revival as second season syndrome began for George’s outfit Burley.

Ipswich then traveled to Anfield on the last day of the season and was relegated following a 5-0 loss, falling to second place just a year after securing UEFA Cup qualification.

West Brom 0-6 Liverpool – 2003

Michael Owen enjoyed an afternoon to savor as Liverpool routed already relegated West Brom in April 2003, scoring four times and evoking a personal century of Premier League goals at The Hawthorns.

Liverpool led by a single goal at the break thanks to Owen’s streaked arrival, before two in two minutes at the start of the second half put the Reds in control, Milan Baros returned home a second before Owen reacts the fastest to score its 100th peak. flight goal.

Owen and Baros tormented the hosts throughout as a promising partnership blossomed, the latter kicking off the England international for their hat-trick after dribbling through West Brom’s defense.

Danny Murphy played Owen to make four for himself and five for Liverpool, with Baros rounding out the scoring and putting the shine on an emphatic result after running on Steven Gerrard’s long pass.

Liverpool advanced on a level playing field with Chelsea, fourth after the win, but missed out on Champions League football after a dramatic final day loss to West London at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool 6-0 Derby – 2007

Liverpool rose to the top of the Premier League for the first time under Rafael Benitez with this early season win in 2007, outscoring a Derby side that quickly found themselves out of reach in the Premier League.

Xabi Alonso’s 45-yard free-kick eluded everyone to open the scoring, before Ryan Babel doubled the home side’s advantage with a smart turn and a smart finish for his first Liverpool goal.

Fernando Torres continued his excellent start as a Liverpool player with a calm finish and Alonso scored a second with a fierce will to make four, with the dominant hosts adding a fifth as Andriy Voronin tapped home.

Torres marked his second and sixth for the Reds who taught the newly promoted side a lesson on Merseyside, an ignominious loss in the midst of the Premier League’s worst season, Derby was relegated after scoring just 11 points.

Newcastle 0-6 Liverpool

Newcastle and Liverpool have played in some of the Premier League’s all-time classic contests, but it was a far cry from the ding-dong battles of the mid-90s as the Reds won in style at St James’ Park.

Daniel Agger opened the scoring after just three minutes with a looping header, before former Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson clinched a fine final to give Liverpool their biggest win of the season.

Liverpool were without the suspended Luis Suarez after his 10-game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic, although they barely missed the influential Uruguayan as Daniel Sturridge’s quick brace put the visitors firmly in control.

Fabio Borini scored his first league goal of the season before Mathieu Debuchy was sent off for slamming Philippe Coutinho, Henderson stepping in to complete the next free kick and rack up more misery on the Magpies threatened with relegation.

Aston Villa 0-6 Liverpool – 2016

Liverpool’s indifferent league form had seen Brendan Rodgers sacked and replaced by Jurgen Klopp in the 2015/16 season, with the German enjoying a memorable away win in his first months at the helm.

Klopp’s side traveled to the Midlands and inflicted more misery on an Aston Villa side at the bottom of the division and rushed to relegation, scoring six unanswered times at Villa Park.

Daniel Sturridge – making his first start under Klopp – opened the scoring, before James Milner scored against his former club to give Liverpool a two-goal advantage at the break.

Emre Can added a third and Divock Origi scored just 37 seconds after coming in as a substitute to make four, the rout completed by an unlikely pair of scorers in Nathaniel Clyne and Kolo Toure.

It was the eighth time an away team has won 6-0 during the Premier League era, with Liverpool being incredibly responsible for half of those wins.

Liverpool 7-1 Southampton – 1999

Having started the 1998/99 season with the odd co-management of Roy Evans and Gerard Houllier, Liverpool advanced with the latter in charge towards the end of the campaign and hopes were high for a bright future after a record-breaking victory against Southampton.

The visiting Saints were dull and sad as the creepy Reds hit seven in Merseyside, with Robbie Fowler scoring a hat trick and surpassing a century of league goals for Liverpool.

Dominic Matteo came home a second after Fowler’s opener, before the latter spun and ended abruptly to score three goals for Houllier’s side before the break.

There was no slack in the second half as Fowler managed Michael Owen’s cross for his hat-trick and Jamie Carragher scored the rarest of goals after reacting first to a rebound.

Egil Ostenstad pulled out a goal for Southampton which ultimately mattered very little to the competition, with Owen and David Thompson scoring seven goals for the Reds – all of which were scored by Liverpool academy graduates.

Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool

Liverpool’s 7-0 at Crystal Palace in December was the club’s biggest Premier League win, with just nine games in the division’s history having been won by a bigger margin.

It was the first time the Reds have won with a seven-goal lead in a top-flight away game, the champions in sensational form as Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have each scored twice at Selhurst Park.

Takumi Minamino opened the scoring after just three minutes with his debut Premier League goal, before Sadio Mane and Firmino put Jurgen Klopp’s side on cruise control before the break.

Firmino notched a charming fourth and Jordan Henderson finished five with his first of the season, substitute Salah scoring twice in the last nine minutes to secure Liverpool’s biggest Premier League win.

The victory sounded like a declaration from the defending champions as they sought to defend the title, but inconsistent performances after the start of the new year saw Liverpool drift away.
