Arsenal were shellshocked as Bournemouth took the lead at the Emirates in just nine seconds after Philip Billing’s finish gave the visitors a very early lead in north London. From the kick-off, the midfielder waltzed into the Gunners defence and tapped past Aaron Ramsdale.
The Premier League have stated that the goal went in at nine seconds, making it one of the fastest recorded in the competition’s history as Mikel Arteta was left stone-faced.
Dango Ouattara danced down the right flank before his low cross caused confusion between the Arsenal defenders as they failed to clear the ball before the Danish midfielder was able to fire past Ramsdale and potentially deliver the Gunners a blow in their title hopes after Manchester City defeated Newcastle 2-0 in the early kick-off on Saturday.
The goal was originally recorded at 11 seconds, but data provider Opta then updated to confirm that the goal went in at nine seconds though it is still not the quickest in Premier League history.
