More than 1,000 goals are set to be scored in the 2018/19 Premier League season, and it only took Paul Pogba three minutes to score the first.
He is the first player from either of the squads to achieve the feat, despite the past four opening fixtures having featured one of these two teams.
It was a very different story last season as Arsenal opened up in a seven-goal thriller, beating Leicester 4-3.
Quick off the mark
Alexandre Lacazette headed in the opener after just 94 seconds. That was the third time the first goal of the season had arrived inside the opening two minutes.
Opening from the spot
Pogba's goal is the fourth instance where the opening goal of the season has come from the penalty spot.
Alan Shearer was one of three players to score in the fifth minute on the opening day in 1995/96, for Blackburn Rovers against Queens Park Rangers.
On only one occasion has the season’s first goal been an own goal. Kyle Walker put the ball into his own net to give Man Utd a 1-0 home win over Spurs in August 2015.
