Players to score at both ends

16 Jan 2019
Own Goal Leads

Forty-six players have scored a goal and an own goal in the same Premier League match

The players who have scored at both ends in one match total 46 and include some illustrious names, such as John Barnes, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Gareth Bale and John Terry.

Of the 46, 29 scored in their own net before amending for their errors. 

Three did more than cancel out their own goal putting the ball twice into their correct net: Barnes, Niall Quinn and Rooney.
