2015 is drawing to a close - so what better way to celebrate that by a generic sport-based feature?

Over the last 12 months we've seen some of the most dramatic and memorable moments imaginable - from Lionel Messi's moment of magic in the Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich to Usain Bolt being wiped out by a cameraman on a Segway, every single moment has been caught on camera for millions to watch and see.

And then illegally uploaded to YouTube. And then taken down. Then put back up again. You get the idea.

That copyright wrangle has left behind a trail of oddities and PR videos that have racked up millions of views between them.

Being the kind-hearted souls that we are here at GiveMeSport, we've waded through the, and we will use the words, utter crap, to dig out the most-watched videos on YouTube for some of the biggest teams in Premier League and Europe.

Check them all out below. Enjoy.

Manchester United

Man Utd v Freekickerz penalty challenge - 4.3 million views

Yep, the most watched Manchester United video involves a player who's no longer there, Angel di Maria, one who doesn't want to be there, David de Gea, and one the manager doesn't want, Marcos Rojo. Falcao is somewhere in the background as well. Maybe this article is a bad idea...

The maligned group take on the 'Freekickerz' group in a penalty challenge. Given the amount of 'Bwin' advertising around, it's safe to assume there's an army of PR types behind this.

Chelsea

David Luiz vs Diego Costa - FIGHT- Chelsea vs PSG - 2015 HD - 4.4 million views

Ignoring the fact that there's a popular doll called Chelsea who muddies the waters when it comes to searching for the most popular video, this good ol' fashioned scrap between Diego Costa and David Luiz is top of the charts. At least when it comes to football and not plastic toys.

The two went head to head in the Champions League in more ways than one back in March. We'll make Luiz the winner given that, 'y'know, his side won.

Arsenal

The dirty side of derby Chelsea vs Arsenal - Fights, Fouls, Dives & Red cards | Part 1 HD - 1.8 million views

Arsenal really should have thought, when they were naming their club, to go for a name that isn't associated with guns because articles in 2015 might be difficult to write given then ambiguity of their name. Is it really so hard?

Anyway, it seems the Gunners' faithful love nothing more than a spot of violence, especially when it comes to Chelsea as they've made this collection of spats, handbags and shoves their most watched video of 2015.

Liverpool

Liverpool FC - A Free Kick Masterclass - 4.5 million views

Ah Liverpool, you corporate shills, you. You have such a rich history to draw upon, have so many greats to have graced the grace of Anfield - yet a promo video from Betfair is top of the pile. Bah humbug.

To be fair, the video isn't half bad; it stars Dutch free kick chubby funster YouTuber Bas teaching Liverpool 'stars' such as Mario Balotelli, Lazar Markovic and Fabio Borini. What is it about these YouTube promo videos and picking out doomed stars who are destined to be sold?!

Best of the rest

Tottenham - Referee Mike Dean celebrating Tottenham goal v Aston Villa (2.2 million)

Real Madrid - Real Madrid vs Granada 9-1 All Goals 5/4/2015 HD (4.8 million)
