With his first goal for Tottenham Hotspur only 19 seconds after the second half started against Chelsea, Oliver Skipp’s superb strike is not even in the top 10 fastest goals in the second half of Premier League matches.

The fastest since the timing of all Premier League goals began in 2006 was by Sammy Ameobi. The Newcastle United winger scored only eight seconds into the second half of his match at Spurs.

Amoebi was a half-time substitute and his goal in 2014 remains the quickest scored by a replacement in the Premier League.

Only three goals were scored inside the opening 10 seconds of second halves since 2006.

Dirk Kuyt for Liverpool and Sergio Aguero for Manchester City both scored nine seconds after the restart, at West Ham United in 2007 and at Fulham in 2011 respectively. 

Skipp's goal at least established a club record in the Premier League era.

It was a second faster than Eidur Gudjohnsen's goal 20 seconds into the second half of Spurs' fixture at Stoke City almost 13 years ago.
