5 - Wolves 4 Leicester 3 (2003/04)

The Foxes were rock-bottom when they headed to Molineux in the autumn of 2003, while the hosts were hardly faring better, precariously placed just above the drop-zone.

With form desperately thin on the ground and this being a Midlands derby and a relegation six-pointer rolled into one, a tight, terse encounter was expected. But against the betting odds, a thriller erupted. 

Thirty-five minutes in, Leicester were three up, the points all-but-secured, that was until a rare Colin Cameron double after the break made things extremely interesting. 

Once Alex Rae equalised late in the game there was only going to be one winner, Henri Camara poking home from close range with moments to spare. 

4 - Everton 3 Wimbledon 2 (1993/94)

The Toffee’s proud forty-year stint in the top-flight was seemingly coming to an end on the final day of the 1993/94 season, with victory needed against Wimbledon, while Sheffield United had to lose at Stamford Bridge.

Half an hour in, the Blades were ahead, and Everton were two down to the Dons.

The Yorkshire side were ultimately defeated while at Goodison, an exceedingly generous penalty gave Mike Walker’s side hope.

Then, in the second half, all hell broke loose.

Wimbledon continued to carve out chances, but at the other end the woodwork was twice struck before a Barry Horne humdinger nearly took the Gwladys Street roof off. 

The stage was set for Grham Stuart to notch only his third goal of the campaign, his last-gasp act of salvation prompting a mini-crowd invasion. 

3 - Newcastle 4 Arsenal 4 (2010/11)

Imagine the odds in the football betting on Newcastle clawing back a four-goal deficit against Arsene Wenger’s Gunners.

With Arsenal at their breezy best and Robin Van Persie among the goals, the contest was over after just 26 minutes. 

All that was left was for the Magpies to avoid an outright massacre and Abou Diaby seeing red after half-time at least helped them in that regard. 

A Joey Barton pen soon-after made the score-line more respectable, before a Leon Best effort had optimists believing in miracles. 

When Barton again converted from the spot with seven minutes to play, St James’ Park was suddenly full of converts. 

With momentum having swung to the hosts and Arsenal panicked, the ball was cleared to Cheik Tiote a full 25 yards out. A sweet, perfectly-struck volley will forever be the midfielder’s legacy. 

2 - Crystal Palace 3 Liverpool 3 (2013/14)

A thoroughly gripping title race in 2013/14 saw Liverpool and Manchester City swap top spot on an almost weekly basis.

With two games to play however Brendan Rodgers’ side knew that the points might not be sufficient at Selhurst Park. Goal difference could prove key.

Which explains why on a blustery Monday evening, three up and coasting, Luis Suarez and company continued to drive forward, leaving gaps at the back that could potentially be capitalised on. 

In 11 crazy late minutes, Palace famously did precisely that.  

1 - Man City 3 QPR 2 (2011/12) 

We will never again witness such a perfect storm of pandemonium as what occurred at the Etihad on May 13th, 2012.

Needing to win against the Hoops to secure their first league title for 44 years, Roberto Mancini’s Blues instead self-combusted, going 2-1 down to the delight of Manchester United fans the world over, certain that yet another Premier League crown would be theirs. 

Two minutes into injury-time that felt like the only conceivable outcome, barring a comeback of all comebacks.

A 92nd minute Edin Dzeko header brought City level but was there even enough time to mount another attack? 

There was, producing a goal and a moment that is seared into every memory. Aguerooo!
