Arsenal is playing Queens Park Rangers this afternoon in an important match for the Gunners. Just before kickoff, bitter rivals Spurs pulled ahead of Arsenal thanks to a late winner from the Premier League player of the year, Gareth Bale. Bale's goal made Arsenal's match against QPR a must-win contest. Theo Walcott wasted no time.
It only took the pacy Gunner 20 seconds to score, and it's his second early goal in the last week. He scored in the second minute against Manchester United last Sunday en route to a 1-1 draw. Fittingly, today's goal beat out an effort by United's Robin van Persi as the year's fastest. Last November, the ex-Arsenal captain scored after just 32 seconds against West Ham.
