Fans vote Liverpool’s top 5 Premier League matches – with 1 surprise inclusion

Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Man United last season has been voted their greatest Premier League match in a new poll.

Fans were given the opportunity to vote for the greatest Premier League matches Liverpool have been involved in via LFC’s official Twitter page, with the final top five now revealed.

The Reds have been involved in some incredible games in the Premier League era, particularly since Jurgen Klopp‘s arrival in 2015, and four of the five matches that ranked top came during the German’s time in charge.

It’s no real surprise to see last season’s victory at Old Trafford rank top, but some of the other games to make the top five may raise some eyebrows!


5. Liverpool 3-1 Man City – 2019/20

Coming in at No.5 is the 3-1 victory over Man City in November 2019, on a day that further suggested a long-awaited league title was close.

Fabinho‘s long-range strike was the memorable moment from the game, although Mohamed Salah‘s header to finish off a slick move was also a joy to watch.


4. Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle – 1995/96

In at No.4 is arguably the most entertaining Premier League match in history, as Liverpool beat Newcastle 4-3 back in April 1996.

Stan Collymore’s last-gasp winner was truly iconic – back when Martin Tyler knew how to commentate! – And the end-to-end nature of the game summed up both sides’ style of play at the time.


3. Liverpool 4-3 Man City – 2017/18

Next up in third place is another triumph over Pep Guardiola’s City, this time the 4-3 epic on Merseyside in January 2018.

At that point, you could feel that Klopp was creating a special team, and the win showed they were a match for anyone in Europe, as they ended the visitors’ unbeaten run.

A few months later, Liverpool would also dump City out of the Champions League in thrilling fashion.


2. Liverpool 9-0 Bournemouth – 2022/23

Rather strangely, and with recency bias playing a key role, this season’s 9-0 annihilation of Bournemouth at Anfield takes the runner-up spot.

Granted, it was a great performance during what has been a largely below-par campaign to date, but there have surely been many more impressive all-round displays and victories against better opposition.


1. Man United 0-5 Liverpool – 2021/22

There can be few disputes over No.1, however, as the 5-0 masterclass at United last October takes the top spot.

Salah struck a hat-trick, at a point when he was surely the world’s best player, while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also got in on the act.

To win so convincingly away to your biggest rivals is the stuff of dreams – the Reds were 4-0 up at half-time – and it was so brutal that the home supporters streamed out of the exits at the break.

It doesn’t get any better than that, does it?
