Biggest winning Premier League margin 

Liverpool matched the record of Manchester United and Leicester City, for the margin of the largest Premier League win, when they beat Bournemouth 9-0 at Anfield in August 2022.

However, it was the Red Devils who first held the record with their 9-0 victory over Ipswich in 1994. Whereas, Leicester equalled it when they scored nine goals past Southampton in October 2019. United then repeated the feat in 2021 when they dismantled the Saints at Old Trafford.
