Danish striker NicklasBendtner wrote his name into the Premier League record books when he came off the bench to make an instant impact for Arsenal during the North London Derby clash with Tottenham Hotspur. The Gunners had struggled a bit to see off Spurs in the league encounter in 2007. Eventually, NicklasBendtner did the job a few seconds after entering the pitch as a substitute as he scored the winner to lead Arsenal to a 2-1 win.

No one has been able to beat the record of six seconds set by NicklasBendtner till date. It took him just six seconds to score the winning goal off a Cesc Fabregas corner kick as a substitute introduced by manager Arsene Wenger with ten minutes left to play.

Spanish winger Gerard Deulofeu is in the top five as far as the fastest-scoring substitutes in the Premier League are concerned. He came on as a Watford substitute against Manchester City in 2019 to score a consolation goal within 17 seconds off the assist from Troy Deeney.City had led 3-0 through a 15-minute Raheem Sterling treble in the second half
Deulofeu is joint fourth alongside English striker Andy Johnson who came off the bench to score for Fulham after 17 seconds off the layoff from fellow attacker Bobby Zamora against Wolves in April 2011.

Frenchman Antoine Sibierski is third with 15 seconds. That was all it took him to make his impact in the colors of WiganAthletic. He scored shortly after coming on as a substitute to secure an away win over Derby County. The Rams lost their seventh successive home game as a result.

SammyAmeobi is second behind NicklasBendtner with eight seconds. With Tottenham Hotspur leading 1-0 at the break courtesy the goal from Emmanuel Adebayor, Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew sent on Sammy Ameobi and he scored the equaliser almost immediately before AyozePerez scored for Newcastle United to win the game for the away team via a 2-1 scoreline.
