Palace’s newest signing scored with his second touch of the ball just after coming on, setting a record in the process.
It took Edouard just 28 seconds to open his account for Palace, making it the fastest goal in Premier League history by a debutant off the substitutes bench. The previous fastest was scored against the Eagles, by West Brom’s Thievy in 2013/14.
|Odsonne Edouard||v Tottenham Hotspur, 2021/22||29 seconds|
|Thievy||v Crystal Palace, 2013/14||36 seconds|
|Cucho Hernandez||v Aston Villa, 2021/22||53 seconds|
It is also the quickest debutant goal for a Palace player in the modern era, beating Ibra Sekajja’s strike against Hull City in April, 2011 (30 seconds).
