Bruno And Murray Land Premier League Record

By Kieran Cleeves • 29 October 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion duo Bruno and Glenn Murray combined to set a Premier League record against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon.

Albion’s captain provided the assist for his team-mate in the 48th minute to break the deadlock, and the combination secured their place as the oldest pair to combine for a Premier League goal in the competition’s history.

Falling to second place in the record books are Manchester United legends Ryan Giggs (35y 273d) and Paul Scholes (36y 260d), after their 2010 goal against Newcastle United at Old Trafford was bettered.

Their total of 72 years and 168 days was beaten by 254 days (73y 57d), when Bruno (38y 25d) and Murray (35y 32d) combined to seal Albion’s third consecutive victory in the Premier League.

The pair join a host of high-profile names towards the top of the leaderboard, with the likes of Teddy Sheringham, Tim Sherwood, Les Ferdinand and Denis Irwin all sitting inside the top six combinations.

It was the second time Bruno has laid on a goal for Murray since the pair joined up in 2016 — the Spaniard drove forward and cut the ball back for Murray to dispatch in Albion’s 3-1 victory against Birmingham City at the Amex.

Saturday's goal was again the opener, but this time it was not only the turning point but also the solitary strike that bagged another three points on the south coast.
