Southampton's Shane Long scores fastest Premier League goal in history

Southampton forward Shane Long broke a Premier League record for the quickest-ever goal when he scored on 7.69 seconds against Watford on Wednesday as the hosts struck late to earn a 1-1 draw.

The previous fastest goal was scored in 9.82 seconds by Ledley King for Tottenham against Bradford in 2000.

Long beat Ben Foster after intercepting an attempted clearance by Watford's Craig Cathcart just after kickoff.

Watford's Andre Gray had gone close twice only to be foiled by Saints keeper Angus Gunn, but in the final minute of normal time he found the net from close range.

The rest of the top five for fastest Premier League goals includes Alan Shearer's strike for Newcastle against Manchester City in 2002-03 on 10.52 seconds in third, Spurs' Christian Eriksen against Manchester United in 2017-18 on 10.54 seconds in fourth and in fifth place, Mark Viduka for Leeds against Charlton in 200-01 on 11.90 seconds.
