In the process, the 34-year-old became the first player in Premier League history to score in the opening 15 seconds on two separate occasions.
Back in 2013, the frontman took just 13 seconds to score for Southampton in a game against Chelsea.

3. Ledley King - 9.82 seconds
Just shy of 10 seconds had passed when King gave Tottenham the lead away to Bradford City in 2000. Not only that, it was also the defender's first goal in the Premier League. Photo: Richard Heathcote
4. Alan Shearer - 10.52 seconds
It’s no surprise that one of the 260 goals netted by the all-time leading Premier League scorer makes the list. His strike came in a game against Man City at St James' Park in 2003. Photo: Laurence Griffiths
