Chelsea haven't had much to smile about this season, but a snappy start to their midweek visit to Norwich surely was worthy of a few grins.
In search of their third straight league victory, the Blues were well on their way after 20-year-old midfielder Kenedy broke the deadlock just 39 seconds in.
The Brazilian, who made the summer switch to southwest London after launching his career with Fluminese, got Guus Hiddink's side off to a flying start with his first Premier League goal, and, consequently the fastest recorded this season. Watch:

Not a bad finish for a young 'un! What were you doing when you were 20?
Now, it's time for your weekly memo: Kenedy has scored more Premier League goals than Eden Hazard.
