The 10 Latest Goals In Premier League History


The 10 Latest Goals In Premier League History

Following on from Alexis Mac Allister scoring a very late penalty against Manchester United in the Premier League last Thursday, we thought that we would take a look through the 10 latest goals ever scored in the history of the division.

Mac Allister held his nerve to thump an emphatic penalty past David De Gea, and that goal puts him in the top five on the list of the latest-ever Premier League goalscorers. So with that said, let’s get into the list…

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

10) Jesse Lingard – 97:30 (Leicester 0-2 Man Utd, 2020):

The first goal on this list was scored on the final day of the 2019/20 season, when Manchester United took on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium needing just a point to confirm their place in the top four and therefore the following season’s UEFA Champions League.

Bruno Fernandes’ 71st-minute penalty handed United the advantage, but it is United’s second goal, coming from forgotten man Jesse Lingard, that makes the first entry on this list. Lingard robbed Leicester’s Kasper Schmeichel of the ball on the edge of the box and simply passed the ball into an empty net to confirm United’s place in the top-four and condemn Leicester to Europa League football. Amusingly, that was the Englishman’s first and only league goal of that season.

9) John Terry – 97:53 (Chelsea 3-3 Everton, 2016):

The next goal on this list is one that should not really even be on here, because John Terry’s late equaliser against Everton in 2016 was very controversial due to the centre-half being in an offside position before scoring.

Terry actually opened the game’s scoring with an own goal to hand Everton the lead, before Kevin Mirallas later made it 2-0. Two goals in two minutes from Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas drew the Blues level after the hour-mark, but Ramiro Funes Mori’s 90th-minute goal from a corner seemed to have won it for the Toffees.

But, approximately eight minutes later, a long ball into the Everton box followed by flick-ons from Kurt Zouma, Branislav Ivanovic and Oscar saw the ball land into the path of Terry, who did well to cleverly backheel the ball into the net.

8) Che Adams - 97:56 (Bournemouth 0-2 Southampton, 2020):

Southampton’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth on the penultimate gameweek of the 2019/20 season left the Cherries on the brink of relegation back to the Championship, and Che Adams’ late goal played a part in doing so.

Danny Ings’ opener four minutes before half-time, which was his 21st goal of the season, gave Southampton the lead, and it stayed that way until stoppage time, when Bournemouth seemed to have scored an equaliser through Sam Surridge.

However, Callum Wilson was adjudged to have been in an offside position in the build-up and the goal was chalked off. With their Premier League status in serious danger, Bournemouth thew men forward, but that left them somewhat exposed at the back.

Michael Obafemi’s pass into the box found Che Adams on the edge of the six-yard box, and the forward did well to control the pass and fire a fine finish past Aaron Ramsdale and into the far corner to make the three points certain.

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

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.

6) 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.

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

Alexis Mac Allister’s goal against Manchester United just over a week ago is the 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 last Thursday.

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.

4) 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.

3) 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.

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.
