Shane Long scores the fastest goal in Premier League history – inside EIGHT seconds into Southampton’s clash at Watford

Shane Long has dethroned Ledley King by scoring the fastest Premier League goal in history!

The Southampton striker gave his side an unexpected lead against Watford at Vicarage Road when he charged down Craig Cathcart’s clearance before chipping the ball over Hornets goalkeeper Ben Foster.

The moment Long was about to make history

It took Long a short 7.94 seconds (I timed it myself), to give his side the lead.

This SHATTERS the previous record held by ex-Tottenham star Ledley King’s record of 9.82 seconds for a goal he scored against Bradford in December 2000.
