Steven Gerrard's slip against Chelsea will always be remembered

The Premier League has seen innumerable incidents on the pitch, over the course of more than two decades, which are etched in our memories. From Gerrard's slip to Cantona's kung-fu kick, these incidents are simply unforgettable.

There's never been a dull moment in the Premier League and the players have always caught the eye for either good reasons or bad ones. The English top flight has seen unbelievable goals, goal celebrations and crazy antics on the pitch which have gone to the extent of fanboys and ballboys getting bullied or even physically assaulted.

The following slideshow includes 5 of these incidents from the Premier League which will be talked about for a long time.



#5 Cantona's kung-fu kick


Eric Cantona's kung-fu kick on a fan was one moment of madness which shocked football. Crystal Palace fan Matthew Simmons was abusing Cantona's mother and as soon as Cantona heard it, he launched his fierce kick right into the ribs of the fan.

"My best moment? I have a lot of good moments but the one I prefer is when I kicked the hooligan." Cantona said on the kung-fu kick. Cantona was banned for 9 months from football which was one of the longest bans in the league's history.

"When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea," Cantona said in a press conference post the incident.
