3. Tottenham Hotspurs 9-1 Wigan Athletic
What was the first of the two eight goal margin defeats for Wigan Athletic, turned out to be the biggest win for Tottenham in the premier league. Starting with Defoe and Crouch up front, Tottenham just held a 1 goal lead at half-time thanks to Peter Crouch.
The second half saw nine goals being scored, including eight by Tottenham (which became a record for most goals in a half by a team). Six players (including one from Wigan) were on the score sheet. Defoe was the hero, scoring five goals. If there was any consolation for Wigan, they denied Spurs a clean sheet thanks to Paul Scharner. 2009/10 was the first time Spurs would finish 4th and reach the Champions League.
