UEFA Champions League returned on Tuesday night and it delivered great surprises. Real Madrid lost 1-0 away against CSKA Moscow; Manchester United continued boring with a 0-0 draw against Valencia and Bayern Munich narrowly escaped an embarrassing defeat in a 1-1 draw against Ajax at home. Manchester City limped forward with a narrow 2-1 win away against Hoffenheim but Paulo Dybala grabbed a hat-trick against Young Boys in Turin. Tottenham faces Barcelona at Wembley tonight as Liverpool entertain Napoli in Italy. Today, as we wait for more football, we want to look at the six most boring teams in Premier League history.
6. Watford – 2006/07
The current Watford side in the Premier League can’t learn anything positive from the team that finished 20th in 2006/07 season. This is because they were boring, predictable and poor. They scored only 29 goals all season as compared to 11 netted in 7 matches played so far this season.
5. Sunderland- 2001/02
Same old Lee Cattermole then…
The Sunderland man showed he isn't a completely changed man.

Sunderland continues to drop down the divisions like manna from heaven. The Black Cats were playing in Premier League two seasons ago but now they are in League One. They relegated from the Championship at the end of last season. The current side is bad but not as bad as the 2001/02 team. The side narrowly escaped the drop by finishing 17th on the log. They had one of the best strikers in the League Kevin Philips who netted 11 goals but as a team, they got only 29.
4. Man City-2006/07

Manchester City is now the best team in Premier League by a mile. Liverpool and Chelsea are close to Pep Guardiola side but they must prove it with trophies this season.
However, Etihad was a boring place before the arrival of billionaire Sheikh Monsour in 2008. They were a middle table team fighting for relegation every season. In 2006/07 season they finished 14th after scoring only 29 goals.
