15 August 1992 - Deane For A Day

On 15 August 1992, the first ever Premier League goal was scored by Sheffield United striker Brian Deane, who netted in the 5th minute of the Blades' opening day match against Manchester United. He also scored with a penalty kick in the 50th minute, propelling the Blades to a 2-1 win.

Manchester United recovered from their poor start, however, claiming the inaugural Premier League title. Sheffield United finished in 14th position.
