The 10 Latest Goals In Premier League History


The 10 Latest Goals In Premier League History

Here we take a look at the top 10 latest goals in Premier League history, with plenty of records set to be broken following the recent addition of extended stoppage time, inspired by the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Last season, Alexis Mac Allister scored a 99th-minute penalty against Manchester United in the Premier League for Brighton & Hove Albion, meaning that he became one of just two entrants to this list from the 2022/23 campaign, however, after just six matches in the current season, the likes of Dejan Kulusevski has already made his mark on it with his dramatic winner against Sheffield United, while in the same fixture, Brazilian striker Richarlison missed out on making this list by approximately 30 seconds.

Since then, the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Leon Bailey have also added their names to this list via goals past the 100-minute mark. Will anybody manage to eclipse the top spot during the 2023/24 season?

Take a look and see which players feature in this top 10 below...

Note*- Only goals since 2006/07 have been included – this is when exact goal times began being recorded

10) Carlos Vinicius – 98:05 (Brentford 3-2 Fulham, 2023):

Last March’s West London derby between Brentford and Fulham saw the Bees come out on top, but Fulham did not make it easy for them at all as the Cottagers put up a strong fight.

The Bees made a very fast start, taking the lead through Ethan Pinnock’s strike after just six minutes of play. Manor Solomon then drew Fulham level six minutes before half-time with what was his fifth goal in as many games, but Ivan Toney’s 15th goal of the season via a 53rd-minute penalty restored Brentford’s lead.

Mathias Jensen’s finish from close-range 32 minutes later then made it 3-1 to the Bees, and essentially confirmed that the three points would be heading to the home side. But, Fulham made the last few minutes nervy for the hosts, and there was faint hope that they could even snatch a point after Carlos Vinicius’ goal deep into stoppage time.

Ultimately, it turned out to be just a consolation, with the final whistle being blown moments later to conclude what had been a fantastic game of football.

9) Yakubu – 98:14 (Wigan 3-3 Blackburn, 2011):

Yakubu hammered in a last-gasp penalty to salvage a dramatic point for Blackburn away at fellow strugglers Wigan in 2011.

The Nigerian also opened the scoring in this one by firing his side ahead after only a minute, but Wigan’s Jordi Gomez drew the Latics level soon after. Wigan then took the lead for the first time through Gary Caldwell’s header, but Junior Hoilett would draw Rovers level. The home side then seemed to have scored the winner with just two minutes of normal time to go, with Spanish winger Albert Crusat scoring what was his first and would be his only goal for the club.

Blackburn would then win a corner soon after, which saw goalkeeper Paul Robinson make his way into the box as Rovers went all out in search of an equaliser. And Robinson certainly contributed in getting that equaliser, with the goalkeeper’s attempt at a header being cut short by a boot to the face by Wigan’s David Jones. Andre Marriner blew for a penalty, which Yakubu calmly converted to ensure that Blackburn left the DW Stadium with a point.

8) Alexis Mac Allister – 98:16 (Brighton 1-0 Man Utd, 2023):

Alexis Mac Allister’s goal against Manchester United last May is the second most recent addition to the list, with Brighton’s midfield maestro smashing in a late penalty to hand the Seagulls a dramatic win and avenge their FA Cup exit at the hands of the Red Devils just 11 days prior to their league meeting.

But, in what was an entertaining, end-to-end game that initially looked like it was going to finish as a goalless draw, Brighton fans began to become excited when referee Andre Marriner was invited to look at the pitchside monitor by VAR for a supposed Luke Shaw handball from a Brighton corner.

After taking a look, Marriner awarded Brighton a penalty for the handball, with World Cup winner Mac Allister holding his nerve to smash the ball into the top corner and hand the Seagulls all three points in the most dramatic of circumstances.

7) Alex Iwobi – 98:19 (Everton 1-0 Newcastle, 2022):

Alex Iwobi scored a dramatic late goal against Newcastle in March 2022 to give Everton a massive boost in their fight against relegation last season, with that Iwobi goal and other crucial victories against Manchester United, Chelsea and Crystal Palace later on down the line key to keeping the Toffees in the top-flight.

The game was a dull affair for the majority of play, but it sparked into life in the second half. Firstly, and what resulted in the initial 14 minutes of stoppage-time being handed out, was a protestor who astonishingly tied themselves to one of the goalposts and caused the match to be delayed whilst stewards attempted to remove them. Then, Allan was controversially sent off for Everton in the 83rd minute, leaving them with 10 men and still needing a goal.

With the clock ticking down, the Toffees managed to wrestle possession away from Newcastle in midfield, with Iwobi exchanging passes with Dominic Calvert-Lewin before coolly sliding home a composed finish to hand Everton a much-needed win.

6) Bruno Fernandes - 99:45 (Brighton 2-3 Man Utd, 2020):

Alexis Mac Allister’s winning penalty that we just mentioned is actually only the third-latest winning penalty in Premier League history. Who is second? Bruno Fernandes. And in what fixture? Yes, Brighton versus Man Utd again.

In what was a dramatic and action-packed game, Manchester United were awarded a penalty despite the full-time whistle having already been blown. Neal Maupay gave Brighton the lead with a 40th-minute penalty, but it was a lead that lasted all of three minutes after Lewis Dunk’s own goal.

Marcus Rashford gave United the lead 10 minutes into the second half after a stunning individual effort, and just when it seemed that United were going to leave the Amex with all three points, Solly March’s stoppage-time header levelled the game at 2-2 and United, so close to a first win of the season, seemed resigned to leaving with just a point instead.

But, there was more to come. A Harry Maguire header struck the outstretched hand of Neal Maupay, but referee Chris Kavanagh seemingly missed it and instead blew for full-time. Amidst appeals from United players, Kavanagh was instructed by VAR to take another look at the incident on the pitchside monitor, where he then spotted the infringement and subsequently blew for a penalty.

Because the full-time whistle was blown after the incident and not before, and it had taken place in normal time, the VAR was allowed to check the incident and allow the penalty to be taken irrespective of the full-time whistle that had initially followed the handball. Bruno Fernandes kept his cool to score the winner and what is United’s latest-ever goal in the Premier League era.

5) Dejan Kulusevski - 99:53 (Tottenham 2-1 Sheffield United, 2023):

When Tottenham hosted Sheffield United on 16th September 2023, many expected the Lilywhites to brush aside the Blades, however, the hosts have a tradition of making things hard for themselves and fell behind to a goal from ex-Coventry City midfielder Gustavo Hamer in the 73rd minute.

Ange Postecoglou’s men looked like a busted flush when heading into injury time, despite eventually racking up 28 shots to Sheffield United’s seven, however, Brazilian striker Richarlison managed to score a header from a corner in the 98th minute, his 50th Premier League goal, seeing him become the third most prolific Brazilian to play in the English top-flight behind Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus.

It looked like Spurs had managed to earn a late point, however, Dejan Kulusevski had other ideas, as the Sweden international was teed up by Richarlison on the edge of the penalty area just moments later and fired in a clinical strike into the top-left-hand corner, leaving Wes Foderingham with no chance and in-turn, sending the home support into raptures.

By scoring this goal, Tottenham managed to seal the latest comeback win when trailing in Premier League history, beating their own record of 95 minutes against Leicester City in January 2022.

4) Gabriel Jesus - 100:15 (Arsenal vs Manchester United, September 2023)

Arsenal against Manchester United was a dramatic encounter at the Emirates Stadium on 3rd September 2023, with the two sides meeting for the first time since the Gunners edged a five-goal thriller in North London back in January of the same year thanks to a stoppage-time winner from Eddie Nketiah.

This would be another breathtaking match, as like the previous meeting, Marcus Rashford would give the Red Devils a first-half lead, however, Erik ten Hag’s men would quickly be pegged back following a quick response from Norwegian midfielder Martin Odegaard less than a minute later.

United thought they had found what looked like a late winner by Alejandro Garnacho, however, VAR deemed the Argentina international’s goal to be offside before Declan Rice would send Arsenal fans into raptures as his 96th-minute goal from an Arsenal corner squirmed through Andre Onana’s grasp.

The Gunners weren’t finished there though, as they caught United on the break with virtually the last kick of the game as ten Hag’s men looked for an equaliser, this resulted in ex-Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus being played in on goal while being tracked by Diogo Dalot, who the Brazilian saw off with ease via a fake shot before slotting the ball past a helpless Onana.

3) Leon Bailey - 100:19 (Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace, September 2023)

The latest goal to be scored so far during the 2023/24 Premier League season was by Aston Villa’s Leon Bailey in his side’s 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace on 16th September.

Staggeringly, Unai Emery’s side trailed the Eagles by a 1-0 scoreline up until the 87th minute, having fallen behind to a 47th-minute goal from ex-Celtic striker, Odsonne Edouard.

The Villans fought back in style, as Jhon Duran buried a thunderous half-volley into the roof of Sam Johnstone’s net following a superb cross from Lucas Digne on the left-hand side, while in the 98th minute, Villa took the lead via a Douglas Luiz penalty after Chris Richards was judged to have fouled Ollie Watkins in the penalty area.

Jamaica international, Bailey, sealed the points for Emery’s men as a precise ball from Moussa Diaby from the left wing was swept into the back of the net by the former-mentioned player to settle the score at 3-1 with a goal that was made in Leverkusen.

2) Juan Mata – 100:03 (Chelsea 3-1 Norwich, 2011):

Chelsea had made an unconvincing start to life under the management of Andre Villas-Boas, drawing with Stoke and needing a late Florent Malouda goal to beat West Brom in their opening two matches of the 2011/12 season. And the Blues would need further late goals to secure victory in their next match against Norwich.

Chelsea did take an early lead but were eventually pegged back by Grant Holt’s strike just after the hour mark. A Frank Lampard penalty in the 82nd minute restored Chelsea’s lead, but there were 11 minutes of injury time still to play going into the 90th minute following Didier Drogba’s earlier head injury that resulted in a long delay.

And it was in those 11 minutes that debutant Juan Mata got Chelsea’s third, with the Spaniard capitalising on Ritchie De Laet’s error to slot home his first goal for the Blues and only the second-ever Premier League goal scored after 10 additional minutes of stoppage-time.

1) Dirk Kuyt – 101:48 (Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool, 2011):

This match was seemingly heading for a goalless draw but burst into life after the 90th minute, with not one, but two goals coming as a result of penalties in injury time.

A Jamie Carragher head injury was the cause of the long additional time that was handed out, and it was Jay Spearing who conceded the first spot-kick after his challenge on Cesc Fabregas. Robin Van Persie duly slotted the penalty into the bottom left corner to give the Gunners the lead and set them on course for a late win. And the Dutchman was actually not far off making this list, with his penalty recorded as being scored at 97 minutes and 10 seconds.

However, just four minutes after that Van Persie penalty and following a poor Luis Suarez free-kick, Emmanuel Eboue’s clumsy push on Lucas Leiva whilst the duo were both challenging for the airborne ball saw Liverpool awarded a penalty of their own. Dutchman Dirk Kuyt stepped up and dispatched it with aplomb, with that turning out to be the final kick of the game as the final whistle was blown immediately afterwards.
