It was the Long and short of the Premier League. Shane Long scored the fastest-ever goal in the competition Tuesday, netting after 7.69 seconds for Southampton against Watford. Long intercepted Craig Cathcart’s clearance and ran onto the loose ball before dinking a shot over goalkeeper Ben Foster. Based on the Premier League’s timing, the goal was quicker than the 9.9 seconds it took Tottenham’s Ledley King to score against Bradford in 2000. “It’s a record, is it?” Long said to broadcaster Sky Sports.
