Newcastle score their second fastest goal ever after Almiron nets in under 20 secs… but Shearer still holds the record – The Sun

NEWCASTLE UNITED scored their second fastest goal in Premier League history this afternoon, as Miguel Almiron netted inside TWENTY seconds against West Brom.

The exact timing of the goal was 19.98 seconds into the game, but that is still some way short of the club record held by Alan Shearer.

The Premier League all time record scorer netted for the Magpies after just 10.52 seconds against Man City in 2003.

Newcastle fans will not mind one bit though, as is put them in the lead against Baggies at St James' Park.

Steve Bruce will be hoping his side can hold on to their lead to end a run of three consecutive defeats, in which the Magpies failed to score a single goal.

They have put that right today though, taking the lead inside the opening twenty seconds.
