Tottenham's 9 Biggest Wins in Premier League History

Tottenham have been Premier League mainstays since the competition's beginning in 1992 but are now considered heavy hitters after an age of mid table mediocrity.


Thanks to the emergence of goalscorer Harry Kane and creative outlets Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli, Spurs are an attacking force to be reckoned with, with Mauricio Pochettino's side grabbing hefty wins in recent seasons.


Here are Tottenham's nine biggest ever Premier League victories.

9. Wimbledon 2-6 Tottenham - May 1998

Selhurst Park was the venue for this fine Tottenham victory as 25,820 fans looked on as they were treated to a Jurgen Klinsmann masterclass.


Spurs took the lead in the 18th minute through Les Ferdinand, scoring just his fifth goal of the season on the penultimate weekend of Premier League fixtures.


Wimbledon responded in fine fashion, flipping the scoreline in ten minutes to take a 2-1 lead through Peter Fear's double before Klinsmann began his dismantlement just before half-time to send the sides in level.


Klinsmann scored three more in just six second half minutes to give Spurs a 5-2 lead, before Moussa Saib capped off the scoring with ten minutes left to give Tottenham their ninth biggest Premier League victory.

8. Tottenham 5-0 Oldham - September 1993

Despite a convincing win here, Spurs struggled in the 1993/94 season and finished the Premier League campaign in 15th position, their worst ever finish.


Teddy Sheringham ended the season as Spurs' top goalscorer with 15, despite only featuring in 19 matches due to injury, leaving some to wonder where Spurs would've finished if they had their talisman fit throughout the year.


It is fair to say Oldham were still in the dressing room for the first ten minutes of the game as Spurs raced into a 3-0 lead within seven minutes, through a Steve Sedgley strike and Sheringham's double to put the game beyond doubt in the early exchanges.


Spurs added a further strikes goals late on as Gordan Durie and Jason Dozzell scored their first goals of the season in the convincing 5-0 win.

7. Tottenham 5-0 Burnley - September 2009

The second of four 5-0 thrashings belongs to Robbie Keane as Spurs finished in the top four above Manchester City and Liverpool during the 2009/10 season.


Keane opened the scoring in the 18th minute as he stepped up to slot home from the penalty spot before Jermaine Jenas doubled the lead.


It was in 13 second half minutes that Keane really made his impact as he doubled his tally on the 74th before sealing his hat trick just moments later, Keane wrapped up a dominant performance as he scored a fourth before the game was out.


The fourth goal put him the Spurs record books, accompanied by Harry Kane, Jermain Defoe, Dimitar Berbatov and Jurgen Klinsmann as one of five players to score four or more Premier League goals in a single match for Spurs.

6. Tottenham 5-0 Newcastle - February 2012

Louis Saha and Emmanuel Adebayor showed a telepathic partnership as the pair upstaged Newcastle to record a comfortable 5-0 win.


In fact, Adebayor had a hand in all five goals, recording four assists and capping off a fine performance as he got on the scoresheet himself.


Benoit Assou-Ekotto got the ball rolling as his fourth minute strike set the tone for proceedings. Saha then sealed a quickfire brace as Adebayor registered his third assist of the match in the opening 20 minutes as Spurs surged into a convincing 3-0 lead.


In the 34th minute, Adebayor grabbed his fourth assist by setting up Niko Kranjcar to become the joint record holder for the most assists in a single Premier League game, alongside Cesc Fabregas, Dennis Bergkamp, Jose Antonio Reyes, Santi Cazorla and Dusan Tadic.


Adebayor then capped off proceedings as Saha set him up for his tenth Premier League goal of the season, sealing a captivating victory for Spurs.

5. Tottenham 5-0 Swansea City - December 2016

For Tottenham fans, the 2016/17 season represents one of the most successful campaigns in recent years as Mauricio Pochettino lead his side to a second place finish.


Spurs recorded many important victories along the way and only a few were better than the 5-0 trouncing of Swansea, who ended the campaign in 15th.


Over 31,000 were in attendance as Spurs took sword to the Swansea City backline as Kane, Dele Alli and co registered 23 shots, with 15 between the posts as Swansea failed to register a sole attempt.


Kane got the scoring underway as his 40th minute penalty broke the deadlock and Swansea's backbone. Son added a second before half-time to make it 2-0 before Kane immediately scored a third as play resumed for the second half.


A Christian Eriksen double salvo condemned Swansea to a nightmare evening in north London as Spurs ran out 5-0 winners.

4. Leicester 1-6 Tottenham - May 2017

Spurs ran riot at the King Power Stadium over 2015/16 Premier League champions Leicester as Harry Kane scored a ridiculous four goals.


In typical fashion, Kane opened the scoring courtesy of a Son assist before Alli set up Son to give Spurs a two goal cushion going into half-time.


However, Leicester responded through Ben Chilwell just before the hour mark, which threatened to make the game interesting as City fans hoped the game could yet be saved.


Kane soon settled the affair as he scored and then assisted Son to regain the two goal cushion before writing himself into Spurs history, netting his third and fourth of the game to join the previously mentioned quartet in scoring four goals in a single Premier League match.

3. Tottenham 7-2 Southampton - May 2000

Despite losing 7-2, Southampton actually scored the opening goals in this game, as Jo Tessem put them one up before Dean Richards fired into his own net to level the scoring only for Tahar El Khalej restored the one goal five minutes later.


Clearly frustrated about the lack of their own scoring prowess, Spurs completely flipped the scoring as three goals in six minutes sent them in 4-2 up at half-time to a completely stunned White Hart Lane crowd.  


Spurs proceeded to score a further three goals in the second half as they finished the game as 7-2 winners.

2. Hull 1-7 Tottenham - May 2017

Harry Kane finished off a superb year at Spurs when he was awarded the Premier League Golden Boot after a 7-1 victory against Hull in the season that Spurs finished second.


Opening the scoring in the 11th minute, Kane quickly added a second just two minutes later to set himself on course for a hat trick in Tottenham's final Premier League game of the 2016/17 season. 


Dele Alli added a third before Hull City bit back through Sam Clucas as the hosts tried to salvage something from the game. Victor Wanyama continued the scoring in the 69th minute as his strike restored the three goal lead before Kane sealed his hat trick and 29th goal of the season just moments later.


Ben Davies and Toby Alderweireld scored their first goals of the season as the defensive duo got in on the action to fully wrap up a more than convincing win.

1. Tottenham 9-1 Wigan Athletic - November 2009

The second biggest victory in Premier League history behind Manchester United 's 9-0 win over Ipswich Town, the Spurs boys really turned up the heat in this one. 


Defoe was particularly prolific as he became the only Tottenham player in Premier League history to score five or more goals in a solitary Premier League fixture.


Amazingly, this game only saw one first half goal, as Peter Crouch opened the scoring in the ninth and wasn't until the 51st that the ball found the back of the net again as Defoe began the snowball movement.


In just seven second half minutes the scoreline had transformed from 1-0 to 4-1 as Defoe sealed a hat-trick, with a goal from Paul Scharner sandwiched in the middle. 


Aaron Lennon added a fifth in the 64th before Defoe scored his fourth and fifth goals of the game as Spurs charged into a 7-1 lead.


Chris Kirkland then decided Spurs deserved another goal, fumbling David Bentley's whipped free kick into his own net before Kranjcar rounded off the scoring deep into extra time to finish one of the Premier Leagues most convincing victories.
