27 November 2010 - Another Bad Day To Be A Goalkeeper

On 27 November 2010, the Premier League saw its greatest ever goal tally for a single day as teams found the net a record 36 times.

Sixteen teams played that day and every one of them scored at least one goal. There were a handful of debuts as West Ham's Victor Obinna and Arsenal's Jack Wilshere got their first league goals (in wins over Wigan and Aston Villa, respectively), while Villa midfielder Ciaran Clark netted the first and second goals of his career.

But the day's best performance came from Dimitar Berbatov, who struck five times for Manchester United in a 7-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers. In doing so, the Bulgarian became only the fourth Premier League player to score five in one match, following Jermain Defoe, Alan Shearer, and Andy Cole.
