Who scored the fastest ever Spurs goal?
King scored the opener against Bradford City in a staggering 10 seconds. The game was played on the 9th December 2000 and resulted in a 3-3 draw. King volleyed the deflected shot in from around 20 yards out. Long live the King of the Lane! He is, however, the jointer-holder of the ten-second title. Newcastle’s Alan Shearer achieved the same feat against Manchester City on January 18th, 2003.
Spurs have two scorers in the top ten
Another Spurs player occupies a spot in the top-ten quickest Premier League scorers of all time: Christian Eriksen. The Dane’s goal against Manchester United on January 31st, 2018, registers as the third quickest goal, with a timestamp of just 11 seconds. A more likely contender than the mighty Ledley King, but he missed out on the record by just a split second!
