The five fastest Premier League goals of all time - Navas misses the cut

Jesus Navas' goal 14 seconds in for Manchester City against Tottenham almost made the list. But who's scored faster than that since the league was formed?

Chris Sutton – 13 seconds – The 1994/95 season that saw Blackburn Rovers win the league title also saw one half of the SAS partnership alongside Alan Shearer score after just 13 seconds against Everton.

Dwight Yorke – 13 seconds – The striker went on to form a lethal partnership alongside Andy Cole at Manchester United but this goal came for Aston Villa in a 3-0 victory over Coventry City.

Mark Viduka – 11.1 seconds – Normally considered a rather lazy front man, the Australian was too quick for Charlton Athletic in 2001 in a 2-1 victory for Leeds at The Valley.

Alan Shearer – 10.4 seconds – The Premier League’s top goal scorer of all time is second in the list after his goal against Manchester City in 2003 in a 2-0 win at St James’ Park.

Ledley King – 10 seconds – The fastest goal of all time remains King’s for Tottenham against Bradford City back in 2000 in a game where Spurs threw away a 3-1 lead to draw 3-3. The goal can be seen in the video below.
