West Bromwich Albion striker Thievy Bifouma broke the record for the fastest debut goal in the Premier League, after netting in Saturday's 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace.

The deadline day signing opened his account just 36 seconds into the second half at Selhurst Park, after replacing midfielder Zoltan Gera at the break.

Bifouma arrived at The Hawthorns on loan from Espanyol until the end of the season, and Pepe Mel will be looking for the 21-year-old to provide more firepower in attack for the Baggies, as they look to avoid the drop.

The Frenchman actually happened to be one of three debutants that scored in the game in south east London at the weekend, with Thomas Ince and Joe Ledley both also netting on their first starts for Tony Pulis' new-look Eagles side.

It's the first time that three debutants have scored in the same Premier League game outside of the opening day of a season, but Bifouma's quick-fire consolation goal happened to be the most impressive as it's the first time a player had scored within his first minute of action in England's top-flight.

Interestingly, nine out of the top 10 fastest goals by Premier League debutants have been scored by substitutes in the second half of games, with the anomaly coming from a starter just three minutes and 41 seconds after kick-off in the first-half.
