Manchester United, Man City Or Liverpool? Who Has Been Involved In The Biggest Shock Of The Season?
We have seen a whole host of great Premier League games this season as we look to be in for one of the closest title races in recent years. Liverpool and Manchester City will be going head-to-head all the way until May as they battle their way towards that glittering trophy.
This season we have seen routine wins as well as huge shocks across the season but which did the bookies price up as the biggest shock of the season. We take a look at the top five biggest shocks of the season.
5th - Leicester 0-1 Cardiff
Cardiff were not fancied at the end of December when Neil Warnock’s side travelled to the East Midlands to take on Leicester. Coming off the back of two incredible wins Leicester were well-backed keep up their good form but Cardiff had different ideas. A 92nd-minute winner from Victor Camarasa gave the Welsh the win at a tasty 13/2 with the bookies.
4th - Spurs 1-3 Wolves
Tottenham at Wembley were a tasty prospect having hit five past Bournemouth and six past Everton in the two games prior to this one. Wolves travelled to London and put in one of their finest performances of the season, slamming three-goal past Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal. Harry Kane had actually given the hosts the lead before a stunning second-half showing gave Nuno Santo all three points. A huge price at 15/2.
3rd - Leicester 2-1 Man City
Manchester City had just been beaten by Crystal Palace at home and it was unimaginable that Pep Guardiola’s men would lose two in a row. However, that is exactly what transpired at the King Power as goals from Marc Albrighton and Ricardo Pereira sank the visitors despite Bernardo Silva putting the champions in front. At 9/1 this was a huge win.
2nd - Chelsea 0-1 Leicester
The Foxes strike again! Like vermin near a bin they cannot stop sniffing out these upsets and a solitary Jamie Vardy goal was enough to sink the Blues who simply could not find a way through the dogged defence. It was a fantastic away showing from Claude Puel’s men as they take second and third spot in this list. A huge 10/1 this was.
1st - Man City 2-3 Crystal Palace
Man City were unbeaten at home all season heading into this game and Crystal Palace were having a Palace-ish season under Roy Hodgson. This would be an easy home win you would think. Yet at a whopping 20/1 Crystal Palace cooked up the shock of the season with a wonder goal from Andros Townsend setting them on their way to an incredible win. I do love playing away.
