Kulusevski strike makes history as latest ever winner in Premier League

Mon 18 September 2023, 18:00|Tottenham Hotspur

Dejan Kulusevski's strike in our 2-1 win over Sheffield United on Saturday broke the record for the Premier League's latest ever match-winning goal.

Having got back on terms late on in the clash as Richarlison's header in the eighth minute of injury time cancelled out Gustavo Hamer's 74th-minute opener, Dejan popped up in the box with 99 minutes and 53 seconds played to find the back of the net to claim us all three points.

In doing so, that effort broke the record for the latest winning goal in a Premier League match, edging Bruno Fernandes' match-winning penalty for Manchester United against Brighton in September, 2020, by eight seconds.

For all types of goals in Premier League history, Dejan's strike ranks third latest with Dirk Kuyt's 102nd-minute equaliser (101 minutes 48 seconds) for Liverpool at Arsenal in April, 2011, and Juan Mata's 101st-minute goal for Chelsea in their 3-1 win over Norwich (100 minutes 3 seconds) in August, 2011, just ahead of our Swede's.

The goal also made Premier League history in helping us to record the latest ever winning comeback in Premier League history. Having trailed the game with the clock on 97 minutes 33 seconds before going onto score twice to claim all three points, we beat the previous record - and one of our doing - our 3-2 win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in January, 2022, where a late, late Steven Bergwijn brace saw us to victory having been trailing with 94 minutes and 52 seconds on the clock.
