Having existed since 1888, the Football League Division One was disbanded when all 24 clubs decided to break away to form a new league at the start of the 1992/1993 season.

Since then, the Premier League has gone on to become the most followed football league in the world, with viewership running into billions from every corner of the globe.

Other than being the most followed league in the world, the English top-flight also prides itself on being the most competitive and while this opinion might be open to debate, it cannot be argued that the Premier League's very open nature means that it provides more than its fair share of shocks and surprise results.

However, like other leagues, the Premier League is not immune from the odd scandalous scoreline and every now and again, a club is usually on the receiving end of a whitewash.

Here, we shall be having a rundown of the five biggest wins in Premier League history.

Honourable mentions: Newcastle 8-0 Sheffield Wednesday (19 September 1999), Chelsea 8-0 Aston Villa (23 December 2012), Southampton 8-0 Sunderland (18 October 2014)


#5 Manchester City 8-0 Watford (21 September 2019)

Manchester City have been transformed into something of an attacking behemoth under the management of Pep Guardiola and the Cityzens made history in the 2017/2018 season when they won the league title at a canter, setting records for most points, largest goal difference, most wins, and most goals scored.

They followed that up with another exhilarating display last term and went one further by becoming the first side in English football history to win all three domestic trophies in the same season.

They haven't been as clinical so far this season, but Watford were on the receiving end of a brutal display on matchday 6.

The defending champions had surprisingly lost to Norwich City the week prior and it was expected that they would respond in an emphatic fashion.

Their claim was further boosted by the fact that they had a recent good record against the Hornets, with the last fixture between the two clubs ending in a 5-0 victory for Manchester City in the final of the FA Cup last season.

It took less than a minute for David Silva to open the scoring and the Mancunians were 5-0 up inside the first 18 minutes.

At that rate, they seemed destined to obliterate the record scoreline in Premier League history, but a combination of factors including profligacy and stepping off the gas pedal meant that just three goals were scored over the next 70 minutes.
