Premier League: Bizarre final day scorelines

Stoke stunned the world by thrashing Liverpool 6-1 on the final day of the 2014-15 campaign.
Stoke stunned the world by thrashing Liverpool 6-1 on the final day of the 2014-15 campaign.

BettingOdds.com takes a look at five of the most bizarre final day scorelines in Premier League history.

Fulham 6-0 Norwich, 2004-05

Norwich travelled to west London knowing that they had to win to stand any chance of remaining in the top-flight back in 2004-05, and were backed by 7,000 loyal Canaries supporters who would have felt optimistic of their chances considering their opponents, Fulham, had nothing to play for after finishing the campaign just below mid-table.

However, Nigel Worthington's side completely capitulated at Craven Cottage and were victims of a 6-0 thumping courtesy of goals from Brian McBride (2), Steed Malbranque, Papa Bouba Diop, Zat Knight and Andy Cole. Norwich were subsequently relegated from the Premier League alongside Crystal Palace and Southampton, while West Brom clinched survival by a single point.

Newcastle 5-1 Tottenham, 2015-16

This result must have been bittersweet for Newcastle fans. Yes they would have been overjoyed after thrashing a strong Spurs outfit at St James' Park, but they would have also been wondering why it took their side until the final day of the campaign - when they were already relegated - to start performing. Tottenham battled Leicester for the title all season long but ended up finishing third after this disasterclass in the north east, made worse by the fact that arch-rivals Arsenal were the team to finish above them after the Gunners beat Aston Villa 4-0.

The Magpies were given just a 20% of beating Mauricio Pochettino's side four years ago, while the 5-1 correct score was priced up at a whopping 400/1 before kick-off.

Man Utd 5-5 West Brom, 2012-13

Sir Alex Ferguson's final game in charge of Manchester United was never going to be normal. The Red Devils had already sealed the title and Steve Clarke had guided West Brom to their highest ever finish in the Premier League (8th), so were always going to put United to the sword. After just 30 minutes of action, the hosts led 3-0 thanks to goals from Shinji Kagawa, Jonas Olsson (og) and Alexander Buttner (remember him?) and looked to have the game wrapped up. James Morrison clawed one back for the Baggies just before half-time, though, before Romelu Lukaku made it 3-2 five minutes after the break; game on.

Robin van Persie then extended United's lead back to two goals on the 53rd minute, before Javier Hernandez made it 5-3 just after the hour mark. Sir Alex's final game in charge looked to be ending in victory until the 81st minute, when Lukaku and Youssouf Mulumbu both found the net in the space of a minute. Lukaku completed his hat-trick on the 86th minute to level the game, and it ended 5-5; the highest scoring draw in Premier League history.

We couldn't actually find the price for a 5-5 correct score as it looks as though it was that audacious, the bookies didn't even price it up. A 4-4 correct score that day was 250/1, though, so it would have been gargantuan!

Stoke City 6-1 Liverpool, 2014-15

Looking back at this result now, it seems even more absurd than it did at the time. Liverpool were enduring a pretty bleak time of it under Brendan Rodgers and finished the season in the sixth-place, but were still 6/5 favourites to defeat Mark Hughes' Potters on the final day of the 2014-15 campaign. Stoke had just finished ninth so had nothing to play for, but ran riot over the Reds, with goals from Mame Biram Diouf (2), Jon Walters, Charlie Adam, Steven N'Zonzi and Peter Crouch cancelling out Steven Gerrard's solo attempt at the Britannia Stadium. 

Bookmakers priced up the correct score at 500/1, giving it a miniscule 0.2% chance of actually landing. I doth my cap to anyone who backed this particular football bet..

Middlesbrough 8-1 Man City, 2007-08

Manchester City are one of the best teams in world football these days, but that wasn't always the case. Pre-takeover back in 2008, the Sky Blues were known as a mid-to-lower table side in the Premier League and often found themselves on the wrong end of large scorelines. None more so than this one, however, against Middlesbrough at the end of the 2007-08 season.

Driven by Alfonso Alves, who netted a hat-trick at the Riverside that day, Boro provided one of the most bizarre thrashings in top-flight history. Stewart Downing, Adam Johnson, Fabio Rochemback and Jeremie Aliadiere also helped themselves to goals during a miserable afternoon for a depleted City side, who sacked manager Sven-Goran Eriksson shortly afterwards.
