Bournemouth score at Arsenal inside 10 seconds to leave Emirates gobsmacked

Bournemouth stunned league leaders Arsenal just seconds into their Premier League clash.

As the south coast side got the game underway at the Emirates, Ouattara picked the ball up on the right-hand side before hitting a low cross into the box. The ball evades all Gunners defenders before it magically falls to Philip Billing who pokes home to open the scoring nine seconds into the game, according to Opta.

The fastest goal in Premier League history is still retained by Irishman Shane Long who, at the time was under fire for his lack of goal-scoring prowess, opened the scoring for Southampton against Watford back in 2019.
