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.
4. Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle – 1995/96
Voted fourth place as your best Premier League match… ?

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
— Liverpool FC (@LFC) November 25, 2022
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
— Liverpool FC (@LFC) November 26, 2022
There can be few disputes over No.1, however, as the 5-0 masterclass at United last October takes the top spot.
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?
