Football, as they say, is a funny old game and nowhere is that more apparent than in the Premier League.
Now 25 years old, the modern incarnation of the English top-flight has provided countless memorable moments down the years, both good and bad, as well as a fair few incidents of unexpected hilarity.
From botched penalty routines to rage-fuelled rants and with even a few punches thrown in for good measure – here are the 13 funniest moments in Premier League history.
Ronny Rosenthal’s Miss
Ronny Rosenthal must curse the day the Premier League came into existence. Were it not for the presence of Sky Sports’ cameras, his epically awful miss for Liverpool against Aston Villa in the 1992/93 campaign may have gone under the radar. Unfortunately for him, it’s gone on to become the stuff of Premier League legend and is a regular staple of blooper reels far and wide.
Peter Enckelman’s Own Goal
Much like Ronny, former Aston Villa shot-stopper Peter Enckelman managed to etch himself into Premier League history in the worst possible way. Collecting a throw-in from Villa teammate Olaf Mellberg, the goalkeeper failed to properly control the ball and could only watch as it trickled into the empty net. What made it worse was the fact it came against local rivals Birmingham.
