Nicklas Bendtner Scored The Fastest Goal By A Substitute In Premier League History And It's Absolute Scenes

Nicklas Bendtner Scored The Fastest Goal By A Substitute In Premier League History And It's Absolute Scenes

You may be surprised to learn that the fastest goal ever scored by a Premier League substitute was recorded by former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.

The Danish forward, who celebrates his 33rd birthday today, has played for the likes of Wolfsburg, Rosenborg and Juventus in a career spanning over 15 years.

He has also represented his country 81 times, scoring 30 goals during his international career - all very respectable records, I'm sure you'll agree.

But for us, a moment against Arsenal's bitter rivals Tottenham on December 22, 2007 is perhaps his biggest achievement to date. I mean, just look at this footage and tell me it isn't.

Both teams looked destined to share the spoils at the Emirates. Emmanuel Adebayor opened the scoring for Arsenal at the start of the second-half before Dimitar Berbatov equalised in the 66th minute.

It looked more and more likely that this North London Derby would end in a draw but super sub Bentdner turned the game on its head in a matter of seconds.

After entering the fray for Emmanuel Eboue in the 76th minute, the great dane recorded the fastest goal scored in Premier League history with a cultured header to make it 2-1.

Arsenal went on to secure all three points and, as a result of his lightning quick header in the second half, Bendtner secured his name in the record books.

Many of fans, however, will always remember him for his time at The Gunners.

In a recent interview, Bendtner actually opened up about the moment he called former manager Arsene Wenger a "w**ker."

Speaking to football magazine FourFourTwo, the 32-year-old Danish striker has opened up on an extremely heated argument he had with the man who gave him his professional debut.

Bendtner claims things came to a head in the summer of 2013, when he wanted to leave Arsenal for another London club.

"We respected each other and had very good meetings - we were honest with each other," Bendtner told FFT. "But at that moment, I wanted to leave Arsenal and Crystal Palace had made a great offer for me.

"The deal fell through because Arsenal couldn't find a replacement."

That led to an awkward exchange. "Wenger phoned and said, 'Sorry, you can't go.' That felt like a massive blow to me, as I'd been waiting all week to leave.

"I called Arsene a w***er and an a***hole so he would have to sell me, but it didn't work."
