In total, five goals have been scored in the opening minutes of matches in the Premier League season.
The record of eight in a season, set in 1996/97, 1999/00, 2003/04, 2013/14 and 2014/15, does not appear in danger, yet.

Leicester soon recovered with Islam Slimani pulling them level three minutes later, making it the first match in which both teams had scored inside the opening four minutes since Sunderland 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur in September 2014.
By the 10th minute Leicester led through Marc Albrighton’s free-kick.
It was the first time a Premier League fixture had three goals by the 10th minute since Arsenal went into a 3-0 lead at St James’ Park, before Newcastle United came back from 4-0 down at half-time to draw 4-4 in February 2011.
By half-time on Sunday Everton led again, thanks to goals from Lukaku and Phil Jagielka, making it the third match this season in which five first-half goals had been scored, after Hull City 4-2 Middlesbrough, on 5 April, and Crystal Palace 2-4 Liverpool, on 29 October.
