Leicester City: Enjoy their crowning moment

Leicester City: Enjoy their crowning moment

The Premier League is back in business this weekend – and to celebrate we want to know your favourite top-flight moment.

England’s top tier has delivered drama, passion and some magic moments down the years – but what is the one that stands out for you the most?

Here are some moments to consider…


It’s the final seconds of the season. You’ve been in charge in the title race all season but have somehow managed to let it slip out of your grasp with your most fierce rivals primed to pick up the pieces and steal the Premier League trophy at the death. What do you do?

Well, when Manchester City found themselves in that exact position in 2011/12, they found themselves a hero and crafted a timeless piece of Premier League history. Sergio Aguero’s injury-time winner at home to QPR will long live in the memories of all that lived it.

Rooney’s dream winner

Of course, Manchester City were no strangers to being on the receiving end of dramatic late goals. Back in 2011, Sir Alex Ferguson’s “noisy neighbours” were really starting to gather momentum as title challengers. They got there in the end, but United certainly didn’t make it easy for them.

Having forced a second-half equaliser from David Silva, City were swatted back into their place by a brilliant Wayne Rooney overhead kick winner before falling to a gut-wrenching 2-1 defeat.

Collymore closes in…

Newcastle United and Liverpool have given the Premier League more than their fair share of brilliant moments, but none have endured more than the 4-3 Liverpool win they played out in 1996 at Anfield.

Kevin Keegan’s Magpies – dubbed then ‘the entertainers’ because of their gung-ho attacking football – were challenging for the title and were slogging it out with Liverpool in a veritable feast of end-to-end football. In the end, Stan Collymore’s last-gasp goal settled it, but it remains the¬†poster-boy game in Premier League history.


Mourinho v Wenger

Arsene Wenger branded Jose Mourinho “disconnected with reality and disrespectful”, a man whose ‘success has made him more stupid’. Mourinho has declared Wenger “a specialist in failure”. It’s no secret that the two men are diametrically opposed when it comes to personality and football philosophy.

So when Wenger snapped and laid his hands on Mourinho to spark some touchline shenanigans in 2014, it may not have surprised anyone – but boy was it entertaining.

Foxes rule the roost

There is a reason why the Premier League is such a prolific producer of magic memories: because anything is possible. And no one reminded us more of that that Leicester City last season!
