The five latest goals in Premier League history

Oli McBurnie rescued Sheffield United a point against West Ham this weekend as the forward held his nerve to convert a stoppage-time spot-kick.

The game had entered the 103rd minute when the Scotland striker slammed home at Bramall Lane, setting a new record for the latest goal scored in Premier League history.

Following McBurnie’s last-gasp intervention, we’ve listed the latest goals scored in the Premier League era.

Juan Mata v Norwich – 100:03 (27/08/2011)

Chelsea made an unconvincing start to life under Andre Villas-Boas and needed two late goals to secure a 3-1 victory over Norwich in their third league fixture of the Portuguese’s reign, with Juan Mata scoring his side’s third as the clock ticked past the 100th minute.

Jose Bosingwa had opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge with a stunning strike before Grant Holt equalised for the visitors, though there was lengthy period of time added on following a nasty head injury to Didier Drogba.

The Ivorian was left motionless and was stretchered from the field following a collision with goalkeeper John Ruddy, before Frank Lampard restored Chelsea’s lead from the penalty spot with eight minutes of normal time remaining.

Mata then scored a late third to make sure of the three points, just the second Premier League goal ever scored after 100 minutes at that time.

Leon Bailey vs Crystal Palace – 100:09 (16/09/2023)

The birth of VAR has extended Premier League games, with three of the latest five goals scored coming during the 2023/24 campaign.

Lengthy checks, much to the disgruntlement of fans, have seen record amounts of added time with Leon Bailey scoring in the 101st minute of Aston Villa’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace in September.

There was more than a quarter of an hour of stoppage time as Villa came from behind in a captivating conclusion. Jhon Duran’s 87th-minute equaliser cancelled out Odsonne Edouard’s opener for Crystal Palace, before Villa were awarded a 98th minute spot-kick. Douglas Luiz converted to snatch the win, though there was still time for Bailey to add a third, as the Jamaican winger turned in moments later.

Gabriel Jesus vs Manchester United – 100:15 (03/09/2013)

Another game that featured two late, late goals in a come-from-behind win.

Arsenal’s clash with Manchester United looked set to end in a 1-1 draw, until Declan Rice’s first goal for the Gunners arrived in the 96th minute to send the Emirates wild.

Gabriel Jesus then sealed the win on the counter-attack as Manchester United committed men forward, with the Brazilian keeping his cool with a lovely finish, side-stepping Diogo Dalot’s desperate challenge to fire home.

Dirk Kuyt v Arsenal – 101:48 (17/04/2011)

Liverpool left Arsenal’s title hopes hanging by a thread following a remarkable finish to this clash at the Emirates, as a contest that was seemingly heading towards a goalless draw burst into life in a frenetic final few minutes.

Robin van Persie thought he had won the game for Arsenal after converting a penalty in the eighth minute of stoppage time to open the scoring, the lengthy added period coming after Jamie Carragher sustained a head injury in a collision with teammate Jon Flanagan.

There proved to be yet more drama, however, as Dirk Kuyt scored the then-latest goal in the history of the Premier League. Four minutes after Van Persie’s opener, Liverpool were awarded a penalty of their own following a clumsy challenge from Emmanuel Eboue.

The Dutchman stepped up to fire home from the spot, as the two late penalties providing an extraordinary finish in North London.

Oli McBurnie vs West Ham – 102:07 (21/01/2014)

Oli McBurnie set a new Premier League record after scoring in the 103rd minute of Sheffield United’s draw with West Ham.

A low-quality game erupted in the final minutes, as both teams received a red card in stoppage time. Sheffield United were then awarded a last-gasp penalty after Alphonse Areola was penalised for a foul on McBurnie.

The Scotland striker dusted himself down to fire past Lukasz Fabianski, who had been substituted on for the penalty with Areola injured in the collision.
