Where Hull’s 6-goal win stands among lopsided Premier League results this year

A 6-0 win is always going to be a head-turner. What makes Saturday’s big rout at the KC Stadium particularly eye-catching is that it wasn’t a team from Manchester or even an Arsenal or Chelsea – clubs traditionally more blessed with attacking riches – doing the 6-goal spanking.

This was little Hull!

So where did the Tigers’ 6-0 win over defensively challenged Fulham rank among lopsided Premier League results this year?

There’s only been one that was a more thorough beating: Manchester City’s 7-0 smashing of Norwich.

Four-goal margins have approached commonplace this year, with four matches landing on the “4-0” number. Two others finished at 5-1. So they are demonstrative wins, to be sure, but hardly anything to write books about. Past that … well, here are the matches with more than four goals scored by one team:

  • Manchester City, 7-0 over Norwich
  • Manchester City, 6-0 over Tottenham
  • Hull, 6-0 over Fulham (today)
  • Liverpool, 5-0 over Tottenham
  • Manchester City, 6-3 over Arsenal
  • Liverpool, 5-1 over Norwich
  • Newcastle, 5-1 over Stoke

    Hull scored all their goals in the second half…..that stands out as a feat of blitz football.

    Six goals in about thirty minutes – call it “Avalance ball.”
