Tom Davies goal for Everton equals fastest Premier League goal record

Tom Davies' strike against Leicester City tied the record set by Romelu Lukaku and Pedro for the fastest Premier League goal this season.

Tom Davies scored for Everton after just 30 seconds of their game against Leicester City to equal the record for the fastest goal scored in the Premier League this season.

Kevin Mirallas surged forward and beat two Leicester players in the opening moments at Goodison Park and, after the Belgian was brought down, Davies pounced on the ball and poked it past Kasper Schmeichel and into the net.

The 18-year-old became the third player in the division to score after 30 seconds this season, after Chelsea's Pedro achieved the feat against Manchester United in October and Everton teammate Romelu Lukaku did the same against Bournemouth in February.

The goal was Davies' second for the club after he opened his Toffees account with the third in a 4-0 win over Manchester City in January but Leicester hit back quickly through Islam Slimani and Marc Albrighton as three goals were scored inside 10 minutes of a Premier League game for the first time since Newcastle United and Arsenal drew 4-4 in February 2011.
