Shane Long scores the fastest goal in Premier League history in 7.69 seconds

Southampton forward Shane Long scored the fastest goal in Premier League history on Tuesday in a match against Watford.

The goal came just 7.69 seconds after kick-off.

Long deflected a pass by Watford defender Craig Cathcart to tee up a smooth chip over the Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Long’s strike broke Tottenham’s Hotspurs Lesley King by 2 seconds — King scored in 9.82 seconds 19 years ago against Bradford City. Alan Shearer , now the 3rd fastest Premier League scorer, netted in 10.52 seconds against Manchester City in 2011.

Long’s goal gave Southampton a much-needed point in the 1-1 draw, helping The Saints steer clear of the relegation zone.
