Christian Eriksen just scored the third fastest goal in Premier League history

Spurs opened the scoring in the 13th second against Man United through Christian Eriksen's first game back from injury

Jose Mourinho couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

After a huge build up to Spurs v Man United all week, everyone was expecting this game to be good but no one expected it to start like this.

Christian Eriksen opened the scoring after 13 seconds with only the sixth touch of the ball by either side at Wembley.

THIRD FASTEST GOAL IN PREMIER LEAGUE HISTORY

The Dane scored the third fastest Premier League goal in history and Mourinho was left stunned on the touchline.

Spurs have history of getting off the mark quickly, former legend Ledley King netted with only nine seconds on the clock.

After Harry Kane nodded the ball on from a long pass, Dele Alli’s shot was blocked and Christian Eriksen picked up the loose ball in the area to slot past David De Gea and his terrible ponytail.

It was the Dane’s seventh league goal of the season.

But it should not have counted.

When the ball was played from kick off, Kane had already encroached into Man United’s half and according to the rules of football the kick off should have been retaken.

While this probably happens in almost every game of football across the land, going by the straight words of the law the game should still be level.

As you can see Kane is encroaching there

In contrast to Mourinho, Eriksen was overjoyed to come straight back from injury and score with his first touch.

The cameras panned straight to Alexis Sanchez who would not have predicted his league debut for United starting off like this.

He looked like the old Arsenal Alexis we have seen, bemoaning the frailties of his team mates.

Unfortunately for fantasy football managers, neither Kane nor Alli will get an assist as the ball ricocheted off the United player.

We like quick goals.
