Portsmouth vs Reading 7-4 (Sep. 2007)
The game between the Pompey Boys and the Royals did not seem as it was going to end up with so many goals. In fact, the scoreline was leveled at 2-2 in the 48th minute when Kitson scored an equalizer for Reading.
But then came a rapid-fire of seven goals where Benjani scored a hat-trick and we even had two own goals from both sides.
Tottenham vs Reading 6-4 (Dec. 2007)
It seems that Reading was not able to catch a break in the 2007/2008 season as only three months after the first they were involved in another game for the record books. This time they lost against the Spurs by 6-4 in an away game.
Berbatov was the man of the match as he was able to bag four.
Tottenham vs Wigan 9-1 (Nov. 2009)
The 9-1 game will not only be remembered by the fact that Tottenham got their most decisive victory in the Premier League, nor by the fact that Wigan also suffered their most devastating loss in the EPL.

Manchester United vs Arsenal 8-2 (Aug. 2011)
This is probably one of the most favorite games for the fans of the Red Devils. Wining against Arsenal is always sweet. But winning in such a spectacular fashion is unforgettable. It seemed that Arsene Wenger’s men did not want to do anything with the game that day.
Rooney scored a hat-trick while Ashley Young bagged two. One of them even came late in the 91st minute of the game as a cherry on top.
Arsenal vs Newcastle 7-3 (Dec. 2012)
This time around, the Gunners were firing on all cylinders. In a 10-goal affair against the Geordies, Theo Walcott bagged a hat-trick, with two more coming from Giroud. Newcastle tried to fight back but what they only managed was to keep the scored leveled for a brief period at the halftime mark.
WBA vs Manchester United 5-5 (May 2013)
