Scoring an own goal is every player’s worst nightmare.
And over the years, we have seen players with their head in their hands and in utter disbelief at what just happened.
Former Manchester City star Richard Dunne, who also played for Everton, Aston Villa and Queen Park Rangers, has scored the most own goals (10) in the Premier League. It’s something he probably isn’t proud of but very much comes with the territory of being a top-flight defender.
He did, however, appear in a staggering 431 matches.
Here’s a definite list of the Premier League’s top own goal scorers!
10 – Richard Dunne
=7 – Jamie Carragher, Martin Skrtel
=6 – Wes Brown, Phil Jagielka, Frank Sinclair, Rio Ferdinand, Gareth McAuley
=5 – Henning Berg, Zat Knight, Richard Rufus, Scott Dann, Phil Neville, Neil Ruddock, Michael Duberry
