Liverpool's Keita scores 15 seconds into match

Naby Keita scored Liverpool's fastest Premier League goal in club history, 15 seconds into the Reds' match on Friday against Huddersfield Town.

Keita clipped the ball from Huddersfield's Jon Gorenc Stankovic within seconds of the whistle toward Mohamed Salah who then threaded it back to the Guinean for a shot into the low corner of the goal.

Keita's goal came days after Southampton's Shane Long scored the fastest in Premier League history, a 7.69-second strike against Watford on Wednesday.

Keita's quick strike effectively sealed the game before it really began, as Salah and Sadio Mane each added a brace for the 5-0 win over the Terriers.

"He was a massive strength today. He is a complete midfielder. He was outstanding today," manager Jurgen Klopp said of Keita, who now has three in his last five games in all competitions.

According to the club, Liverpool's fastest goal ever was Jack Balmer's score against city rivals Everton in February 1938 -- 10 seconds into that edition of the Merseyside derby.

The last player to score a goal for Liverpool inside the first minute of a game had been Martin Skrtel in February 2014 in a 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal.

Liverpool jump back atop the Premier League standings -- two points over Manchester City, who play Burnley on Sunday. The loss ensured already-relegated Huddersfield would finish last in the table.
