Liverpool fell behind after just 25seconds at Newcastle United, withDwight Gayle’s goal the earliest the Redshave ever conceded.
Dwight Gayle scored after just 25 seconds for Newcastle United against Liverpool on Sunday, making Premier League history.
A much-changed Liverpool side were caught dozing as Gayle ran onto Jonjo Shelvey’s quick free-kick and squeezed a finish past Alisson for a goal that was awarded following a lengthy VAR review.
The swift strike was the earliest Liverpool have ever conceded in the Premier League.
And Gayle’s effort – his fifth league goal against the Reds – also marked the fastest goal on the final day of any Premier League season.
Champions Liverpool started with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all on the bench, making this only the second time since the former’s 2017 arrival they have all been missing from a Jurgen Klopp league XI.
