While there’s a debate to be had over which of Europe’s top leagues is the best in terms of quality, there’s no denying which league is the most popular.
The Premier League has a huge following across the world, with millions of people tuning in for every televised game.
Where would we be without it?
Premier League matches are often dramatic, unpredictable and frantic.
The stadiums are almost always full, which creates a fantastic atmosphere, and many of the games feature some of the world’s best footballers.

There have been countless classic games since 1992. Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle from 1996, Manchester City 3-2 Queens Park Rangers from 2012, Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal from 2011 - the list goes on and on.
But it’s a bizarre Premier League match that football fans on social media are currently reminiscing over. You may have forgotten all about it.
In October 2014, Liverpool travelled to Loftus Road and recorded a 3-2 victory over QPR - but the scoreline only tells part of the story.
The match featured a host of missed sitters, some atrocious defending, four goals in the final eight minutes (all coming over 86 minutes of normal time) and three own goals.
We also witnessed a disasterclass from Mario Balotelli.
Watch the video here…
Richard Dunne put Liverpool ahead with an own goal before Eduardo Vargas levelled the scores in the 87th minute.
Philippe Coutinho then put the visitors back in front with a well-taken goal before Steven Gerrard turned the ball into his own net.
Gerrard’s blushes were spared, however, when Steven Caulker diverted a cross into his own net in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
This was one of the most dramatic - if not *the* most dramatic - finishes to a Premier League fixture that we can remember.
While technical brilliance may have been in short supply that afternoon, we were treated to drama in abundance.
And it’s dramatic games like this which made us all fall in love with the Premier League in the first place.News Now - Sport News
